- $1\; +\; RS\_\{t\}=frac\{P\_\{t\}\}\{P\_\{t-1\}\}.$

The continuously compounded return is the value of RS_{t} that satisfies

- $RS\_\{t\}=lnleft\; (frac\{P\_\{t\}\}\{P\_\{t-1\}\}right\; ).$

Thus,

The simple real return rst from t − 1 to t is

- $pr\; =\; t\; -\; n\; /\; log\; (rst).$

The continuously compounded inflation rate is the value of ICt that satisfies. Thus, the continuously compounded real return is the value of rct that satisfies.

Thus, the continuously compounded real return is just the continuously compounded nominal return minus the continuously compounded inflation rate.

Alternatively, the continuously compounded nominal return RCt is the real return rct plus the inflation rate ICt.
