Specify time structure for Cox-Ross-Rubinstein tree


TimeSpec = crrtimespec(ValuationDate,Maturity,NumPeriods)



Scalar date indicating the pricing date and first observation in the tree. A serial date number or date character vector.


Scalar date indicating depth of the tree.


Scalar determining number of time steps in the tree.


TimeSpec = crrtimespec(ValuationDate,Maturity,NumPeriods) sets the number of levels and node times for a CRR binomial tree.

TimeSpec is a structure specifying the time layout for a CRR binomial tree.

This example shows how to specify a four-period CRR tree with time steps of 1 year.

ValuationDate = '1-July-2002';
Maturity = '1-July-2006';
TimeSpec = crrtimespec(ValuationDate, Maturity, 4)
TimeSpec = struct with fields:
           FinObj: 'BinTimeSpec'
    ValuationDate: 731398
         Maturity: 732859
       NumPeriods: 4
            Basis: 0
     EndMonthRule: 1
             tObs: [0 1 2 3 4]
             dObs: [731398 731763 732128 732493 732859]
