Name-Value Pair Arguments

Specify optional comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside quotes. You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.

Example: Price = swaptionbylg2f(irdc,a,b,sigma,eta,rho,Strike,ExerciseDate,Maturity,'Reset',1,'Notional',100,'OptSpec','call')

Frequency of swaption payments per year, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'Reset' and positive integers for the values 1,2,4,6,12 in a NumSwaptions-by-1 vector.

Data Types: single | double

Notional value of swaption, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'Notional' and a nonnegative integer using a NumSwaptions-by-1 vector of notional amounts.

Data Types: single | double

Option specification for the swaption, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'OptSpec' and a character vector or a NumSwaptions-by-1 cell array of character vectors with a value of 'call' or 'put'.

A 'call' swaption or Payer swaption allows the option buyer to enter into an interest-rate swap in which the buyer of the option pays the fixed rate and receives the floating rate.

A 'put' swaption or Receiver swaption allows the option buyer to enter into an interest-rate swap in which the buyer of the option receives the fixed rate and pays the floating rate.

Data Types: char | cell

Swaption price, returned as a scalar or an NumSwaptions-by-1 vector.

Call Swaption

A call swaption or payer swaption allows the option buyer to enter into an interest-rate swap in which the buyer of the option pays the fixed rate and receives the floating rate.

Put Swaption

A put swaption or receiver swaption allows the option buyer to enter into an interest-rate swap in which the buyer of the option receives the fixed rate and pays the floating rate.

Algorithms

The following defines the swaption price for a two-factor additive Gaussian interest-rate model, given the ZeroCurve, a, b, sigma, eta, and rho parameters:

r(t)=x(t)+y(t)+ϕ(t)

dx(t)=ax(t)dt+σdW1(t),  x(0)=0

dy(t)=by(t)dt+ηdW2(t),  y(0)=0

where dW1(t)dW2(t)=ρdt is a two-dimensional Brownian motion with correlation ρ and ϕ is a function chosen to match the initial zero curve.
