simTermStructs

Class: LinearGaussian2F

Simulate term structures for two-factor additive Gaussian interest-rate model

Syntax

[ZeroRates,ForwardRates] = simTermStructs(nPeriods)
[ZeroRates,ForwardRates] = simTermStructs(nPeriods,
Name,Value)

Description

[ZeroRates,ForwardRates] = simTermStructs(nPeriods) simulates future zero curve paths using a specified LinearGaussian2F object.

[ZeroRates,ForwardRates] = simTermStructs(nPeriods,
Name,Value)
simulates future zero curve paths using a specified LinearGaussian2F object with additional options specified by one or more Name,Value pair arguments.

Input Arguments

 nPeriods Number of simulation periods.

Name-Value Pair Arguments

Specify optional comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside single quotes (' '). You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.

 'deltaTime' Scalar time step between periods. Default: 1 'nTrials' Positive scalar integer number of simulated trials (sample paths) of NPERIODS observations each. If you do not specify a value for this argument, the default is 1, indicating a single path of correlated state variables. Default: 1 'antithetic' Boolean scalar flag indicating whether antithetic sampling is used to generate the Gaussian random variates that drive the zero-drift, unit-variance rate Brownian vector dW(t). For details, see simBySolution for the HWV model.Default: false 'Z' Direct specification of the dependent random noise process used to generate the zero-drift, unit-variance rate Brownian vector dW(t) that drives the simulation. For details, see simBySolution for the HWV model. Default: Uses default for simBySolution. If you do not specify a value for Z, simBySolution generates Gaussian variates. 'Tenor' Numeric vector of maturities to compute at each time step. Default: tenor of the LinearGaussian2F object's zero curve

Output Arguments

 ZeroRates nPeriods+1-by-nTenors-by-nTrials matrix of simulated zero-rate term structures. ForwardRates nPeriods+1-by-nTenors-by-nTrials matrix of simulated forward-rate term structures.

Simulate Term Structures for the LinearGaussian2F Model

Create a two-factor additive Gaussian interest-rate model.

```Settle = datenum('15-Dec-2007');
CurveTimes = [1:5 7 10 20]';
ZeroRates = [.01 .018 .024 .029 .033 .034 .035 .034]';

irdc = IRDataCurve('Zero',Settle,CurveDates,ZeroRates);

a = .07;
b = .5;
sigma = .01;
eta = .006;
rho = -.7;

G2PP = LinearGaussian2F(irdc,a,b,sigma,eta,rho)
```
```G2PP =

LinearGaussian2F with properties:

ZeroCurve: [1x1 IRDataCurve]
a: @(t,V)ina
b: @(t,V)inb
sigma: @(t,V)insigma
eta: @(t,V)ineta
rho: -0.7000

```

Use the simTermStructs method to simulate term structures based on the LinearGaussian2F model.

``` SimPaths = G2PP.simTermStructs(10,'nTrials',100);
```
