I'm a little embarrassed about this because I have a PhD in math, but I'm having a little trouble working out how to bootstrap an OIS curve from libor rates and basis swap rates. If I had an equation for valuing everything I'd be set. What I have is a libor curve and a mysterious rate (US dollar OIS) coming from Bloomberg that is somehow related to basis swaps. I have been told that the basis swaps are between Libor and OIS, and I don't know what the equation for that looks like.
For some background, I just learned how to value a swap today, and from that I was able to figure out how to bootstrap the libor curve. I just need an equation to fit the numbers into. I've gotten loads of verbal explanations, so no need to go out of your way to provide one. Thanks.
