@inproceedings{Heath1989BondPA, title={Bond pricing and the term structure of interest rates}, author={D. Heath and R. Jarrow and A. J. Morton}, year={1989} }

This paper presents a unifying theory for valuing contingent claims under a stochastic term structure of interest rates. The methodology, based on the equivalent martingale measure technique, takes as given an initial forward rate curve and a family of potential stochastic processes for its subsequent movements. A no-arbitrage condition restricts this family of processes, yielding valuation formula for interest rate sensitive contingent claims that do not explicitly depend on the market prices… CONTINUE READING
