SQF3: The SABR Model
SQF3: The SABR Model
An Implementation Guide
About the Book
This book serves as an implementation guide to the SABR model, with pricing quants as the aimed readers. It lists various approximation formulas without explaining how they are obtained (hence the subtitle, "An Implementation Guide"). With the goal of "coding it up", this book also provides some general facts on implied volatility and derives an estimation of convergence rate for one of the approximation formulas, to ensure numerical accuracy.
