Vasicek model in binomial tree

At previous post I shared a site using R language for Vasicek estimation, as we know, Vasicek model is a term structure model describing the stochastic process of interest rates. It is a type of "one-factor model" with negative interest rate possible, despite this shortcoming, it is still applied for fixed income research and application due to its mean-reversion characteristics.

Here is another Vasicek application implemented with binomial tree in C++, the tree construction procedure is outlined in Tuckman famous book Fixed Income Securities. By providing input parameters like the initial short rate, speed of mean reversion, long-run average rate and volatility, interest rate following Vasicek evolution is constructed.
