On dynamic foward rate modeling and principal component analysis

Bermin, Hans-Peter LU (2014) In International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Finance 17(5).
Abstract
In this paper, we show how to construct dynamic forward rate models in terms of exogenously specified eigenfunctions (or factor loadings). We also show how to link forward rate models with different number of driving Brownian motions to each other in a way consistent with the implied eigenfunctions. Finally, we discuss how to best parameterize the models in the sense of maximizing the number of free parameters for a given set of eigenfunctions.
