Introduction: This paper is the first in a series of works in which we shall conduct a systematic mathematical study of credit derivatives of the swap type. The formal set-up has been chosen here to be relatively simple, so that we can illuminate and explain some non-trivial aspects of the theory of credit related swap contracts without engaging in complicated technical issues that will necessarily transpire in a more realistic model, which will be studied in a follow-up paper.
