This paper investigates the ability of mixtures of a3ne, quadratic, and non-linear models to track the volatility in the term structure of interest rates. Term structure dynamics appear to exhibit pronounced time varying or stochastic volatility. Ahn et al. (Rev. Financial Stud. xx (2001) xxx) provide evidence suggesting that term structure models incorporating a set of quadratic factors are better able to reproduce term structure dynamics than a3ne models, although neither class of models is… CONTINUE READING
