This chapter examines pricing problems for contingent claims which are written on dividend paying underlying assets. The study of dividends is of practical importance since in real life, the majority of all traded options are written on stocks with at least one dividend left before the expiration date of the option. The theory developed in this chapter will be used in the study of currency derivatives and future contracts. Practice exercises are included.

Keywords: dividends; pricing; contingent claims; underlying assets
