The Nelson-Siegel model is used to introduce the Kalman-Filter as a way to add time-series dynamics to the evolution of yield curves over time, time series models such as Vector Autoregression and regime-switching are also presented* Supported by a website with online resources - www.kennyholm. com where all Matlab programs referred to in the text can be downloaded.
