# Term Structure Modeling under Volatility Uncertainty

@inproceedings{Holzermann2019TermSM, title={Term Structure Modeling under Volatility Uncertainty}, author={Julian Holzermann}, year={2019} }

In this paper, we study term structure movements in the spirit of Heath, Jarrow, and Morton [Econometrica 60 (1), 77-105] under volatility uncertainty. We model the instantaneous forward rate as a diffusion process driven by a G-Brownian motion. The G-Brownian motion represents the uncertainty about the volatility. Within this framework, we derive a sufficient condition for the absence of arbitrage, known as the drift condition. In contrast to the traditional model, the drift condition consists…

We study the Hull–White model for the term structure of interest rates in the presence of volatility uncertainty. The uncertainty about the volatility is represented by a set of beliefs, which…

Pricing Interest Rate Contingent Claims in Markets with Uncertain Volatility

We consider a financial market where the volatility of the interest rate is not known exactly, but rather it is assumed to lie within two a-priori known bounds. These bounds represent the extreme…

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…

In this paper we introduce a sublinear conditional expectation with respect to a family of possibly nondominated probability measures on a progressively enlarged filtration. In this way, we extend…

We investigate default-free bond markets and relax assumptions on the numeraire, which is typically chosen to be the bank account. Considering numeraires different from the bank account allows us to…

It is shown that a market is approximately complete iff an equivalent martingale measure is unique and two constructions of stochastic integrals with respect to processes taking values in a space of continuous functions are suggested.
