function [S, u, d, df, p] = createbintree(S0, T, n, r, sigma)
% creates a simple binomial tree using repmat
dt = T / n;                  % length of one period
u = exp(sigma * sqrt(dt));   % up move
d = 1 / u;                   % down move
df = exp(-r * dt);           % discount
p = (1/df - d) / (u - d);    % probability up

S = zeros(2^n, n+1);
S(:,1) = S0*ones(2^n,1);

for i=1:1:n

S(:,i+1) = S(:,i).*repmat(a, 2^(i-1),1);
