Approximation of Distributions of Treasury Bill Yields and Interbank Rates by Means of α-stable and Hyperbolic Distributions
In this paper α-stable and hyperbolic distributions are presented and proposed as alternatives to the normal distribution in approximation of treasury bill yields and interbank rates distributions.
