Loss Distribution for Homogeneous Pool.
Loss Distribution for Homogeneous Pool
Loss distribution for equal volumes but varying probabilities of default.
The method builds the exact loss distribution for a homogeneous pool of underlyings iteratively by computing the convolution of the given loss distribution with the 'loss distribution' of an additional credit following
