n = 0, 1, . . . ....∞

Assume that the inflation-free interest rate is currently i = 2.5%. The

inflation-free interest rate will change at the end of the first year. There is a 0.5 probability that it will increase to 3%, and a 0.5 probability that it will decrease to 2%. It will then remain at this new level.
