## Calibrating the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck model

Ornstein-Uhlenbeck model is widely used to model interest rate, two popular types are Vasicek and CIR, here the author describes two methods for calibrating the model parameters of an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process to a given dataset.

* The least squares regression method

* maximum likelihood method

sorry, I don't have a copy either. However, I found this PDF explains very well http://commoditymodels.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/estimating-the-parameters-of-a-mean-reverting-ornstein-uhlenbeck-process1.pdf.
