Hi, I saw several LMM implementations touched a concept of accrual period, but not sure of its meaning. Does it mean the start valuation date of the bond from today? If so, can I assume an accrual period of 0 if I valuate the bond today?Also does anyone know some one-factor LMM (in C or VBA) which has been tested and can be used right away?Many thanks.

--------------------the interest on coupon bonds is calculated daily but only paid every 6th months.------------------------------------------the periodicity of the coupon depend on the bonds et countries. For exemple, for italian BTPS the periocity is semestrial but a french OAT is annual.
