Zero-Coupon Bond

A bond that pays no interest. It is sold at a discount from par and matures at par. These are fairly illiquid investments because they do not benefit from changes in interest rates. However, they tend to be low-risk. Zero-coupon bonds fluctuate in price, sometimes dramatically, with changes in interest rates. Sometimes zero-coupon bonds are issued as such; other times they are bonds stripped of their coupons by a financial institution and resold as zero-coupon bonds. A zero-coupon bond is less formally known as a zero.

A 4 (choice format: no zero, present zero only, future zero only, future and present zeros) x 2 (FTP: high or low) x 2 (tradeoff rating: "cannot obtain LL if choosing SS" or "cannot obtain SS if choosing LL") mixed ANOVA revealed a main effect of tradeoff rating, F(1, 208) = 10.033, p = .002, a two-way interaction effect of tradeoff rating x choice format, F(1, 208) = 2.680, p = .048 and tradeoff rating x FTP, F(1, 208) = 11.938, p = .001, and, more important, a three-way interaction effect of tradeoff rating x choice format x FTP, F(1, 208) = 2.961, p = .033.
Recall that in [9], [10] it was shown that if m is an integer [greater than or equal to] 5 or m = 1, then f + [f.sup.m] has infinitely many zeros that are not zeros of f.
a property called the interlacing of zeros. Another classical result on interlacing of zeros of orthogonal polynomials is due to Stieltjes who proved that if m < n, then between any two successive zeros of [p.sub.m] there is at least one zero of [p.sub.n], a property called Stieltjes interlacing [13, Theorem 3.3.3].
