The Arbitrage Pricing Theory: Estimation and Applications

Abstract

The pricing equation of Ross' (1976) APT model is derived using estimable parameters. Estimation errors are discussed in the framework of elementary perturbation analysis. Theoretically, a simple link is provided among the mean-variance efficient set mathematics, mutual fund separations, discrete and continuous time CAPM, option pricing model, term structure of interest rate, capital budgeting, portfolio ranking, Modigliani Miller theorems with the APT.
