Vasicek Short rate simulation - analytical formula vs discretization

I've been using two approaches to simulate Vasicek short rate paths and I'm wondering if one of them is more correct than the other. The first approach is based on the analytical formula (see code ...

CIR model. Is there a closed-form solution or even a good proxy of analytical solution?

Is there a closed-form (analytical) solution for the Cox-Ingersoll-Ross SDE \begin{equation} dr_t=k_r(\theta_r-r_t)dt+\sigma_r\sqrt{r_t}dW_t\tag{1} \end{equation} ? Notice that $\{r_t\}$ is our ...

Choosing which interest rate model to go with?

I've been assigned with the task of modelling zero rate curve. I did it with two models: Vasicek and CIR. Looking at the two curves produced, I can see that one is closer to the observed curve than ...
