### Markovian short rate in HJM framework

In Bjork it is proven in proposition 20.5 that a forward rate dynamics: \begin{equation} f(t,T) = f(0,T) + \int_0^t\alpha(s,T)ds + \int_0^t\sigma(s,T)dW(s) \end{equation} imply a dynamics for the ...

### Deriving the risk-neutral pricing formula for the 2-state credit risk model

I am reading Interest rate models by Cairns—specifically the chapter on credit risk. Cairns introduces first the simple 2-state continuous time Markov model for credit risk—with the two states being "...

### Developing Markov Transition Matrix

I’m working with historical credit performance data and would like to build a transition matrix to predict defaults and delinquencies. I can model the transition between states (ie current - ...

### Hidden Markov Models for Higher frequency trading

I'm curious if anyone can validate my train of thought here with the utility of Hidden Markov models for modeling things happening on higher frequency trading activity versus lower frequency, and in ...

### Probability density function of simple equation, compound Poisson noise

I would like to find the probability density function (at stationarity) of the random variable $X_t$, where: \begin{equation*} dX_t = -aX_t dt + d N_t, \end{equation*} $a$ is a constant and $N_t$ is a ...

### Regime Switching for Dynamic Correlations

I would like to implement a Regime Switching for Dynamic Correlations in an out-of-sample analysis using MATLAB. After looking at the literature on the subject, they all refer to an article by Denis ...

### Why Markov Functional Models (Hunt 2000) are not yet so popular?

I refer to MFM introduced by Hunt . These models can be seen a subset of interest rate market models. MFM allow us to describe the term structure elements using a set a functions of a low-...

### Scaling of a transition matrix

I am working on a ratings transition matrix and I wondered how people scale it down to shorter time periods (although one should more or less stick to the estimation period i know). It is clear that ...

### Pricing a piece of asset whose dividend stream following a Markovian matrix

I'm trying to calculate the result of an simple example on page 326-327, in Harrison and Kreps(1978). It's pricing a piece of asset whose dividend stream is a simple Markovian process. Here's my ...
This is an edit to the previous question, on stationary process, which was answered by Richard below. Let $x_t$ be a zero mean, time homogeneous Markovian process over time $t$ starting from $x_0=0$. ...
