The payoff of inflation linked cashflows involves the ratio of reference values $I_R(T_2)$ and $I_R(T_1)$ with $T_1. The following approximation is used:

where $\phi$ is an approximately linear function, $T$ is the cashflow payment date and $\Bbb E_t^T$ is a $T$ forward measure conditional at time $t$. This approximation ignores the convexity correction which is dependent on the underlying inflation model.

This pays a fixed coupon on an inflation indexed principal. Define the following:

• $P$ the principal amount
• $T_b$ the base reference date
• $T_f$ the final reference date
• $t_1$ the accrual start date
• $t_2$ the accrual end date
• $\alpha$ the accrual daycount from $t_1$ to $t_2$
• $r$ the fixed yield
• $A\ne 0$ is the rate multiplier

The cashflow payoff is
