Short Rate Models

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the problem of how to model an arbitrage free family of zero coupon bond price processes. It assumes a market for T-bonds for every choice of T, and that the market is arbitrage free. For every T, the price of a T-bond has the form p (t, T) = F (t, r, (t) ; T), where F is a smooth function of three real variables. Practice exercises are included.

Keywords: zero coupon bond; price; arbitrage short rate models; bond market; interest
