Abstract/Summary In this paper, we simulate the term structure of interest rates, where the yield curve is based on forward rates which are modelled as a random field. Term structure models based on random fields offer an improvement on yield curve models based on stochastic differential equations, because they do not require recalibration. In the literature, results concerning random field models of interest rates have been entirely theoretical and have not discussed the implications for yield curve modelling. The simulation results presented in this paper, to the best of our knowledge, are the first numerical results for random field based interest rates and yield curve models.
