What is the Natural Scale for a Lévy Process in Modelling Term Structure of Interest Rates?
AbstractThis paper gives examples of explicit arbitrage-free term structure models with L\'evy jumps via state price density approach. By generalizing quadratic Gaussian models, it is found that the probability density function of a L\'evy process is a "natural" scale for the process to be the state variable of a market.
