Has grown by a factor (1 + ???????? )???? . If coupons are paid semiannually or quarterly, we obtain the growth factor (1 + ???????? ∕2)2???? for semi-annual compounding based on a semi-annual rate ???????? ∕2 for half a year and the factor (1 + ???????? ∕4)4???? for quarterly compounding in a similar way. 1 Meaning: not exchange-traded. 2) or, in equivalent differential formulation dB(????) = ???? ⋅ ????(????)dt. 2) describes the growth of an account continuously compounded by the interest rate ????. Alternatively, one might ask for the size of an investment at time ????0 that will have a value of 1 at time ????0 + Δ????.

This follows from the definition of Libor rates. We can propagate backwards through time and obtain the following 2 Day-count conventions formulate how many days are counted between two calendar dates. , the convention “30/360” counts each calendar month with 30 days. Therefore, under “30/360”, there are three days counted from February 28 to March 1, but also from March 28 to April 1. com/bbalibor-explained/the-basics. 4 Again, there are nasty details such as day count conventions, business day conventions and settlement conventions meaning that there is typically a delay of two business days before cashflows are executed.

1 A CONTINUOUS TIME MODEL FOR EQUITY PRICES In this section we summarize mathematical foundations required for the derivation of the Black-Scholes PDE (Hull, 2002). Readers familiar with stochastic differential equations, Wiener processes and the Itˆo calculus can skip this section. Returns Let ???????? be the price of an asset at the end of trading day ????. Then, we can calculate the log-return,1 ( log ???????? ????????−1 ) . 1) The log-return over a time period of ???? days is simply calculated by the sum over the respective daily log-returns, ( ) ( ) ( ) ???????? ???????? ????1 = log + ⋯ + log .
