Unformatted text preview: Discrete-Time Term Structure Models References: Chapter 34 (Fabozzi) & Chapter 7 (FE) Lecture Notes for Actsc 445/845 Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science University of Waterloo Notes by K.S. Tan/Actsc 445/845 Discrete-Time Term Structure Models p. 1/69 Topics Introduction to term structure models Pricing interest rate derivatives/contingent claims backward recursion/dynamic programming approach Calibration forward induction approach Notes by K.S. Tan/Actsc 445/845 Discrete-Time Term Structure Models p. 2/69 Introduction Term structure models Modelling the evolution of term structure of interest rates Single-factor all relevant information in the term structure of interest rate is captured by a single factor e.g. short rate , forward rate, bond price vs. multi-factor Discrete-time e.g. binomial lattice (or model), trinomial model vs continuous-time e.g. Vasicek (1977) Model: dr = a ( b r ) dt + dZ Arbitrage-free Notes by K.S. Tan/Actsc 445/845 Discrete-Time Term Structure Models p. 3/69 Notation T { , 1 , 2 , ... ,T } : time space partition i t : short rate (r.v.) at time period t T for discrete-time model, short rate is the spot rate of interest for the relevant time unit N { , 1 , 2 , ... ,N } : state space partition i ( t,n ) : realized short rate at time period t T and in state n N Notes by K.S. Tan/Actsc 445/845 Discrete-Time Term Structure Models p. 4/69 A Generic One-Period Binomial Branching Model If i t = i ( t,n ) , then in the next period the short rate takes one of only two possible values: either i t +1 = i ( t + 1 ,n ) with probability 1 q ( t,n ) or i t +1 = i ( t + 1 ,n + 1) with probability q ( t,n ) i ( t,n ) i ( t + 1 ,n ) i ( t + 1 ,n + 1) 1 q ( t,n ) q ( t , n ) Generalization to multi-period?

Tan/Actsc 445/845 Discrete-Time Term Structure Models p. 6/69 Remarks on the Interest Rate Lattice Recombining: At time t , there are t + 1 possible states Markovian or path-independent process: the conditional probability of an up-jump:" q ( t,n ) Pr { i t +1 = i ( t + 1 ,n + 1) | i t = i ( t,n ) } , n t < T. the conditional probability of a down jump" is 1 q ( t,n ) Pr { i t +1 = i ( t + 1 ,n ) | i t = i ( t,n ) } . A sample path for the short rate process corresponds to a path through the binomial lattice, starting from node (0 , 0) , and proceeding to one of the time- T nodes....
