Bond convexity given price

**In R2017b, the specification of optional input arguments has changed. While the
previous ordered inputs syntax is still supported, it may no longer be supported in a
future release. Use the optional name-value pair inputs: Period,
Basis, EndMonthRule,
IssueDate,FirstCouponDate,
LastCouponDate,
StartDate,Face,
CompoundingFrequency, DiscountBasis, and
LastCouponInterest.**

fixed income securities given
a clean price for each bond. The clean price of a bond excludes any interest that
has accrued since issue or the most recent coupon payment.

`bndconvp`

determines the convexity for a bond whether the first
or last coupon periods in the coupon structure are short or long (that is, whether
the coupon structure is synchronized to maturity). `bndconvp`

also
determines the convexity of a zero coupon bond. *Convexity* is
a measure of the rate of change in duration; measured in time. The greater the rate
of change, the more the duration changes as yield changes.

`[`

adds optional name-value pair arguments. `YearConvexity`
