@inproceedings{Carr2015FinanceAE, title={Finance and Economics Discussion Series Divisions of Research \& Statistics and Monetary Affairs Federal Reserve Board , Washington , D . C . Derivatives Pricing under Bilateral Counterparty Risk}, author={Peter Carr and Samim Ghamami}, year={2015} }

We consider risk-neutral valuation of a contingent claim under bilateral counterparty risk in a reduced-form setting similar to that of Duffie and Huang [1996] and Duffie and Singleton [1999]. The probabilistic valuation formulas derived under this framework cannot be usually used for practical pricing due to their recursive path-dependencies. Instead, finite-difference methods are used to solve the quasi-linear partial differential equations that equivalently represent the claim value function…

Credit Risk Modeling: Theory and Applications

The author considers the two broad approaches to credit risk analysis: that based on classical option pricing models on the one hand, and on a direct modeling of the default probability of issuers on the other and demonstrates that the distinction between the two approaches is not at all clear-cut.
