Appendix 2: Why Now?

Michael Osborne ()

A chapter in Multiple Interest Rate Analysis: Theory and Applications, 2014, pp 119-123 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract This appendix speculates about why multiple-interest-rate analysis did not appear earlier. As documented in the text, most research into multiple-interest-rates during the twentieth century considers multiple real solutions to the TVM equations; few researchers study the complex solutions. Yet every equation has n solutions and the complex solutions considerably outnumber the real. Why, until recently, has there been a dearth of research about what such solutions could do or mean? Some possible explanations are given below.
