This chapter discusses the standard Black-Scholes model from the martingale point of view. The probability space (Ω, □, P, □-) carrying a P-Wiener process W-, where the filtration □- is the one generated by W-, i.e. □ t = □ t W-. On this space, the model is defined by d S t = α S t D t + σ S t d W- t, d B t = r B t d t. The Black-Scholes model is proven to be arbitrage free and complete.
