T − 1 . We can get a clear interpretation of the parameters ???? and ???? (as parameters of the corresponding normal distribution) by discretizing the SDE, √ Δ???????? = ????Δ???? + ???????? Δ???? ∼ ????(????Δ????, ???? 2 Δ????), ???????? where Δ???????? = ????????+Δ???? − ???????? is the change of the stock price ???? in a reasonably small time interval Δ???? and ???? ∼ ????(0, 1).

13 Runge-Kutta methods are a family of methods for the approximation of the solution of ordinary differential equations. 5 STABILITY CONSIDERATIONS An exact analysis of the stability of different time-stepping schemes is beyond the scope of this book, but can be found in many textbooks on numerical analysis (Quarteroni, Sacco and Saleri, 2002). Here, we only summarize the most important issues. 31) is stable only if ℎ2 . 71) 2 We give a derivation of this stability condition in the appendix of this chapter.

Note that these conventions depend on the respective currency. A 3 year cap would therefore consist of 6 caplets with the floating rate for the first caplet set immediately. As the value of this first caplet is known at the beginning, market convention ignores possible payments from the first caplet/floorlet in the valuation of cap/floor premia. 10) which, on the right hand side shows one cashflow of a vanilla swap. 11) which holds independent of the model used for cap/floor valuation.
