Holding R t constant for a given t by offsetting changes in σ by changes in λ and/or Eεi2 gives room for an experiment in which we change the source of volatility. 8. As is evident from that graph, the main effect is in the short end of the risk structure of interest rates. While it is tempting to think of quadratic variation as realized volatility, it is important to understand the difference between the volatility arising from the diffusion and the volatility arising from the jump part. For a fixed t we have [R]t = R c t + Rs2 , 0 s t where R c is the continuous part of R.

Although an analytical expression for this density is available (see the references for more on this), we use the numerical implementation using the explicit transition probability of the Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process. 10, where we compare yield spreads for parameter values suggested in Collin-Dufresne and Goldstein (2001).
