## Mathematical Finance: Interest Rate Models: Calibrating CIR and HJM Interest Rate Model

Calibrating Interest Rate Models
While in earlier training courses we have covered classic interest rate models, in this session we review two more advance Interest Rate Models, the Cox Ingersoll & Ross Model (CIR) and the Multifactor HJM model for projecting the entire forward curve, rather than just the short rate.

## Forwards and Swaps: Interest Rates Models: Bootstrapping the Zero curve and Implied Forward curve

This road maps focuses on bootstrapping the zero curve and using the zero curve to calculate implied forward interest rates (forward curve). We then used the projected forward rates to price the swap rate for fixed to floating interest rate swap. A separate series of posts build on this material and extend its reach to pricing interest rate caps, interest rate floors, range accrual notes, commodity and equity linked notes.

## Options, Forwards, Futures: Pricing Interest Rate Swaps

Pricing Interest Rate Swaps (IRS)
Here is the first course on pricing interest rate swaps and cross currency swaps divided into three separate sections that address basics of interest rate swaps, term structure modeling and boot strapping and mark to market and valuation.

## Mathematical Finance: Option Pricing using Monte Carlo Simulators in Excel

Mathematical Finance: Option Pricing using Monte Carlo Simulators
In addition to the Black Scholes Equation and binomial trees another important tool in option pricing is Monte Carlo Simulation. A Monte Carlo Simulator in Excel uses the inbuilt Random function in excel to model uncertainty. The Monte Carlo (MC) Simulator uses standardized mathematical finance equations to simulate [...]

## Options Pricing Training: Binomial Trees

Binomial Trees
This course focuses on an alternative method of implementing a two-dimensional binomial tree compared to the traditional method of building a binomial tree presented in most option pricing text books. The alternate approach is based on the techniques documented by Professor Mark Broadie at Columbia Business School as part of his coursework in Security [...]
