comment Rate interpolation in Libor Market Model
you can still use very short maturities (listed) Libor Options Implied Vols if you want to, but as for such maturities vol isn't really the issue you can use flat first caplet vol instead. Regards

comment What is Quantization?
This is typically what I was curious about, but with some explanations of the underlying principles and main points, rather than an ultra- technical one.

comment Rate interpolation in Libor Market Model
Well I haven't implemented the paper but argument seems fine even if the solution to make the fixed Libor is a little "articial" in my opinion and the author could have reformulated it in a more natural way within the framework of Schlögl with "a model" for short rates. Regards.

comment Rate interpolation in Libor Market Model
As this article is quite recent, I haven't read it. I'll take a look and tell you what I think about it. Anyway, there is also some interesting material about this topic in books of Brigo and Mercurio and in the book(s) by Andersen and Piterbarg. Regards

comment Is there a standard method for getting a continuous time series from futures data?
@ Joshua Chance : I think that if you give a precise definition of what " ratio adjusted method" is exactually, you can make this a correct answer. Regards

comment Can you implement a condor options trading strategy in a spreadsheet?
Too vague, more details are needed to answer this. Moreover am I wrong if I say that the answer you want should include an XL-spreadsheet implementation of a condor strategy ?

comment Fundamental Theorem of Asset Pricing (FTAP)
@Shane : Ok I agree with you and I will post an example of the prototypical answer I am targeting (at least I'll try), but simply I don't have the time to do it right now, so a little patience is in order here ;-) Regards

comment Proving Random Walk Hypothesis in Stock Market
Hi I don't know what it's worth but as it seems quite easy to implement you might try this one : arxiv.org/abs/1007.4259

comment What is a Quant
@ quant_dev : I would say a structurer need some basic financial engineering skills but need not be a financial enginieer himself (usually he has a quant support team at disposal). And a "Quant Trader" is definitely a financial engineer. Regards

comment Fundamental Theorem of Asset Pricing (FTAP)
Anyway even if wrong or incomplete any version can be edited after some comments indicating where and why it should be done are properly made, don't you think ?

comment Fundamental Theorem of Asset Pricing (FTAP)
@Shane : True, I could (and actually I can) do that but I feel this is weird to answer my own question. So what I do is that I'll state a FTAP after someone has done it once. Does it seems fair to you ?
