Black-Derman-Toy Model

A popular model for predicting future interest rates. It assumes short-term interest rates determine future long-term rates. It also assumes these short-term rates revert to their mean and have a logarithmic distribution, meaning the logarithm of possible future rates has a normal distribution. The model was developed in the 1980s.
