Spread Term Structure and Default Correlation
The aim of this paper is to analyse default correlation and its implications for the term structures of corporate bonds and credit derivatives, reconsidering the results of Jarrow, R., and F. Yu  and the related literature. We first provide different characterisations of spread term structures, when the available information corresponds to the default histories of the firms. The approach is then extended to factor models, in both static and a dynamic framework. We discuss in details the links between default correlation and jumps in short term spreads, and how these phenomena depend on the available information.
