Abstract: The goal of this work is to examine the PDE approach to the valuation and hedging of defaultable claims in a Markovian model of credit risk. Our approach is based on the paper by Bielecki, M. Jeanblanc, and M. Rutkowski entitled "PDE Approach to Valuation and Hedging of Credit Derivatives". We extend their results by considering a general credit risk model, in which the number of traded assets, the dimension of the driving Brownian motion, as well as the number of default times are arbitrary.
Keywords: basket credit derivatives, PDE approach.
