Libor Market Model
Pp. 91-110 (20)
This chapter introduces the LIBOR market model, which is the standard
model for derivatives pricing. Because the topic of this book is risk management,
we do not deal with the details of pricing. Instead, this chapter introduces
the model, focusing on the implications of the real-world model.
First, we give a definition of the LIBOR market model, following Jamshidian
(1997). Next, we define the LIBOR market model under the real-world measure
(hereinafter, LMRW), and show, following the method of Yasuoka (2013b), that
the model exists. Additionally we find the models under the spot LIBOR measure
and under a forward measure that are implied by the LMRW.
Finally, we verify the numerical differences of the LIBOR process according
to choice of measure. The study on the real-world model will be developed in
