I am following through the book "An Introduction to Financial Derivatives" by Salih Neftci. According to the book, a swap can be decomposed into cash flows from forwards and options.
I am thinking about this, and whether swaptions, which are options on swaps, can also be analogously decomposed into payoffs from forward options and options on options.
I am relatively new to derivative pricing, so I am seeing if this is (a) theoretically feasible and sound as well as (b) practical.
My underlying intuition tells me this can be done, but I am not sure if this is correct and if it has any practical usage (even if theoretically sound in logic).
