Pricing Bermuda Swaptions – infos, material and code needed pls.

Dear fellow quants!

I am looking for some material for pricing Bermuda Swaptions.
Does anybody have, or now where to get Matlab Codes or recommended books to get more insight specific in this topic?

At the moment I am using:
Brigo, Mercurio – Interest Rate Models Theory and Practice
Rebonato – The SABR/LIBOR Market Model
Dissertation Hippler – Pricing Bermudan Swaptions in the LMM (find it in google)

I want to price and calibrate bermuda swaptions by using following methodologies:
-black’s formula
-Longstaff-Schwarz algorithm
-regression based monte-carlo methods for early exercise options.

Thanks for your help.


Try this article on pricing interest rate swaption…it uses the black’s formula to explain how to value a simple swaption but very good indeed and may give you the background you need to value the bermudan…. .


for the paper. I do understand the pricing of swaption, but I am stuck with my Matlab implementation of the Bermudan Swaptions. (

here is my detailed question on Wilmott Forums:

if someone knows any suggestions or even Mr. Hippler himself, help would be highly appreciated.


You may also take a look at Glasserman “Monte Carlo methods in financial engineering” for the regression based monte carlo. It may help you with the algorithm. As for the LIBOR, the LFM is quite good described in Glasserman (I modeled it with R), which is not the case, however, with LSM which is used for swaptions. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions with regard to it

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
