In this paper we study algorithms for pricing of interest rate instruments using recombining tree (scenario lattice) interest models. The price is defined as expected discounted cash flow. If the cash-flow generated by the instrument depends on the full or partial history of interest rates (pathdependent contracts), then pricing algorithms are typically of exponential complexity. We show that for some models, including product form cash-flows, additive cash-flows, delayed cash-flows and limited path-dependent cash-flows, polynomial pricing algorithms exist
