  • jump-diffusion Libor models, calibration, stability, correlation structure


In this paper we propose a jump-diffusion Libor model with jumps in a high-dimensional space and test a stable non-parametric calibration algorithm which takes into account a given local covariance structure. The algorithm returns smooth and simply structured Lévy densities, and penalizes the deviation from the Libor market model. In practice, the procedure is FFT based, thus fast, easy to implement, and yields good results, particularly in view of the ill-posedness of the underlying inverse problem.
