Abstract :
In a simple stationary setting with constant interest rate, we derive pricing formulas
for defaultable bonds with stochastic recovery rate using a replication
argument. Replication is done by using an insurance contract (i.e. a kind of
credit default swap), the price of which is determined by a dynamic premium
calculation principle.We consider two cases, a linear one, where pricing amounts
to solving an inhomogeneous linear ODE, and a super-linear case where a
Riccati ODE has to be solved.
