This paper surveys a wide selection of the interpolation algorithms that are in use in financial markets for construction of curves such as forward curves, basis curves, and most importantly, yield curves. In the case of yield curves the issue of bootstrapping is reviewed and how the interpolation algorithm should be intimately connected to the bootstrap itself is discussed. The criterion for inclusion in this survey is that the method has been implemented by a software vendor (or indeed an…

Methods for Constructing a Yield Curve
input is perturbed (the method is not local). In Hagan and West  we introduced two new interpolation methods—the monotone convex method and the minimal method. In this paper we will review the
Multi-curve Construction
In this chapter we discuss the definition, construction, interpolation and application of curves. We will discuss discount curves, a tool for the valuation of deterministic cash-flows and forward
Interpolating yield curve data in a manner that ensures positive and continuous forward curves
This paper presents a method for interpolating yield curve data in a manner that ensures positive and continuous forward curves. As shown by Hagan and West (2006), traditional interpolation methods

In this paper, an analytic formula for the zero rate is obtained given the complete list of swap rates and a continuous limit of this equation is discussed and used in order to extract the continuous yield curve.
Interest Rate Curve Interpolations and Their Assessment via Hedge Simulations

In this paper we discuss interest rate curve interpolation methods and their properties in the context of financial applications. We review the modern (multi-curve) theory of interest rate curve
The Logic and Practice of Yield Curve Construction
We present a coherent account of the construction of yield curves, both covering the fundamental theory and practical issues that are relevant to practitioners. We review and extend the formulas for
Yield Curve Fitting with Artificial Intelligence: A Comparison of Standard Fitting Methods with Artificial Intelligence Algorithms
The most widely used risk-free yield curve in capital markets is the overnight index swap (OIS) curve, which is derived from observable OISs and is used in this paper as the benchmark curve to derive and compare different yield curve fits.
