Find the parameter $d$ of the Affine Option Pricing Model in Duffie, Pan and Singleton (2000)

$d$ is a vector that collapses the $n$-dimensional vector into a real number. In the BS case $d=1$. There is nothing to be estimated. Also not that in practice affine pricing is done through FFT (and ...

How to determine components of Affine Term Structure for an Ohrnstein-Uhlenbeck process?

Let $\mathrm{d}r_t=\mu(t,r_t)\mathrm{d}t+\sigma(t,r_t)\mathrm{d}W_t$ be a model for the short rate under the risk-neutral measure $\mathbb{Q}$. Starting from the bond PDE \begin{align*} P_t + \mu(t,r) ...

Pricing the discount zero-coupon bond under a jump-diffusion model

If I understood well, your model falls into the generic case of affine models. This reference might help you : http://arxiv.org/pdf/1512.03677v1.pdf

Pure jump process in Duffie, Pan and Singleton's paper

Essentially yes - $Z_t$ is a compound Poisson process, except that the underlying counting process $N_t$ has intensity $\lambda(X_t)$. I.e $$ N_t - N_s \sim Pois\bigg( \int_s^t \lambda(X_u) \mathrm{d}...

What is the Q-dynamics of affine bond prices when r is described by the given model?

Just adding my two cents. Without taking the logarithm of the price, the Ito's Lemma should result in: $d p(t,T) = \left( \partial_t A(t,T) - \partial_t B(t,T) r + \frac{1}{2}\sigma^2B(t,T)^2 \right)p(...

What is the Q-dynamics of affine bond prices when r is described by the given model?

You can simply use Ito's lemma under the risk neutral measure $Q$.For the log-bond price $p(t,T)$ this gives $$dp(t,T)=(A_t(t,T)-B_t(t,T)r_t)dt-B(t,T)dr_t$$ $$=[A_t(t,T)-(B_t(t,T)+B(t,T)a)r_t]dt-B(t,T)...

Affine term structure for CDS

In a (very small) nutshell, the estimation idea is the following: Quoted CDS contracts are driven by a risk neutral default probability $PD_Q(\tau\leq T)$. The default probability is again modeled ...
