2 Continuous Time Default Process: Hazard Rate In continuous time we relate the survival probability until period 2 to the survival probability until period 1 by expressing the probability to default as ldt: p2 ¼ p1 (1 À l dt) where l represents the probability of default during period dt. l is called the hazard rate. (1 À l dt) is the probability of survival in the next time interval dt. In general, piþ1 ¼ pi (1 À l dt) or piþ1 ¼ pi À pi l dt or dp ¼ Àlp dt dp or ¼ Àlp dt The solution of this differential equation is pt ¼ eÀlt.
