We pose the problem of generalizing Dupire's equation for the price of call options on a basket of underlying assets. We present an analogue of Dupire's equation that holds in the case of several underlying assets provided the volatility is time dependent but not asset-price dependent. We deduce it from a relation that seems to be of intereston its own.
