Although the assumption of constant volatility is a
reasonable approximation for some markets, in the
last two decades the need for more general non-
constant volatility models has been the driving
force behind numerous works in Financial
Mathematics. In this book we study systems that
arise in interest-rate markets when the volatility
of the short rate is modeled as a function of two
mean-reverting diffusions that vary on different
scales. This allows us to capture a rich variety of
volatility patterns. In the last part of the book
the analysis is extended to other areas, like Value-
at-Risk, in which similar systems arise when the
volatility is modeled as a stochastic process. The
book is oriented to researchers who work in the
field of Mathematical Finance, as well as to
practitioners who would like to gain a better
understanding of how to include stochastic
volatility in their models.
