The LIBOR market model is a financial model of interest rates. It is used for pricing interest rate derivatives. The quantities that are modeled are a set of forward rates (also called forward LIBORs), which have the advantage of being directly observable in the market, and whose volatilities are naturally linked to traded contracts.
