This model therefore cannot describe interest rate behavior. In order that riskless arbitrage opportunities are absent, the joint process of interest rate behavior must satisfy some conditions. Determining these conditions and finding processes that satisfy them is the purpose of term structure theory. Term structure models are specific applications of term structure theory. The joint stochastic process is driven by sources of uncertainty. For continuous processes, the sources of uncertainty are often specified as Wiener processes.
