The function I am looking at is formula for the Basel II capital
ratio :
correl[pd_] :=> 0.12*(1-Exp[-50*pd])/(1-Exp[-50])+0.24*(1-(1-
Exp[-50*pd])/(1-Exp[-50]));
BB[pd_] :=(0.11852-0.05478*Log[pd])^2;
baselCalc[pd_, lgd_, mat_] :=(lgd*CDF[NormalDistribution[0,> 1],
((InverseCDF[NormalDistribution[0,> 1],pd]
+Sqrt[correl[pd]]*InverseCDF[NormalDistribution[0,> 1],0.999])/Sqrt[1-
correl[pd]])]-(lgd*pd))*(1+(mat-2.5)*BB[pd])/(1-1.5*BB[pd])

correl and BB feed into the main equation, baselCalc. Setting
mat=1,baselCalc has only two parameters, pd and lgd.

I want to know what the impact of pd and lgd are in baselCalc.

For example baselCalc[0.0176, 0.45, 1.] = 0.073247. But how much of
the 0.073247 is due to pd and how much due to lgd ?

Thanks - not sure if this is possible,
Tom
