### Vasicek model calibration to bond prices or rates (no swaptions)

I need to calibrate Vasicek's model $dr_{t} = a(\theta - r_{t})dt + \sigma dW_{t}$ in a market with no swaptions. I was thinking in estimating $\sigma$ with historic data, but I'm in the doubt with ...

### Half-life of short rate

The SDE for the short rate r(t) in the Vasicek model is given by: $$d(r) = k(r^* - r)dt + \sigma dW$$ The deterministic part of the above SDE is the following ODE $$d(r) = k(r^* - r)dt,$$ where $k$...

### Understanding the application of Asset-Correlation to credit risk models

Suppose we have a portfolio of $n$ credits. In order the estimate the Portfolio Value at Risk (99,9) we use a standard vasicek model with the Ability to pay variable $A_i=\sqrt{\rho}x+\sqrt{1-\rho}z_i$...

### Bond-pricing under the Vasicek short rate model

I'm currently studying the Vasicek model of the short interest rate $$dr_t=a(\mu-r_t)dt+\sigma dW_t$$ I know how to solve this stochastic differential equation (SDE) and how to find expectation and ...
