Ross In mathematical finance, the Cox–Ingersoll–Ross model describes the evolution of interest rates. It is a type of "one factor model" as it describes interest rate movements as driven by only one source of market risk. The model can be used in the valuation of interest rate derivatives. It was introduced in 1985 by John C. Cox, Jonathan E. Ingersoll and Stephen A. Ross as an extension of the Vasicek model.

Ross A Theory of the Term Structure of Interest Rates. This paper uses an intertemporal general equilibrium asset pricing model to study the term structure of interest rates. In this model, anticipations, risk aversion, investment alternatives, and preferences about the timing of consumption all play a role in determining bond prices. The researchers showed that the one-state-variable interest-rate models of Vasicek and Cox, et al. can be extended so that they are consistent with both the current term structure of interest rates and either the current volatilities of all spot interest rates or the current volatilities of all forward interest rates. The extended Vasicek model is shown to be very tractable analytically. The one‐factor version of the Cox, Ingersoll, and Ross model of the term structure is estimated using monthly quotes on U.S. Treasury issues trading from 1952 through 1983. Using data from a single yield curve, it is possible to estimate implied short and long term zero coupon rates and the implied variance of changes in short rates.

## The liquidity premium theory has been advanced to explain the 3 rd characteristic of the term structure of interest rates: that bonds with longer maturities tend to have higher yields. Although illiquidity is a risk itself, subsumed under the liquidity premium theory are the other risks associated with long-term bonds: notably interest rate risk and inflation risk.

TERM STRUCTURE OF INTEREST RATES Term Structure of Interest Rates This is the ﬁrst of two articles on the term structure.

In this model, anticipations, risk aversion, investment alternatives, and preferences about the timing of consumption all play a role in determining bond prices. Term structure of interest rate is defined as relation between interest rate and yield curve for default free securities having different maturity (John Cox et al, 1985). Term structure of interest rate is the correlation between different yields of financial instruments with same risk, tax but different maturity (Saunders & Cornett, 2003). Term Structure Theories. Any study of the term structure is incomplete without its background theories. They are pertinent in understanding why and how are the yield curves so shaped. #1 – The Expectations Theory/Pure Expectations Theory. This theory states that current long-term rates can be used to predict short term rates of future.
