Documented in fFitYieldCurve

#' Constructs the ZCB function based on the given market inputs and a specific kernel and base function
#' 
#' 
#' @param TimesVector A vector of all cashflow times
#' @param CashflowMatrix A matrix of all cashflows, instruments in rows, times in columns
#' @param MarketValueVector A vector of market values of the insturments
#' @param fKernel a function of two times used as the Kernel "basis" function
#' @param fBase a function giving the base level of the curve
#' 
#' @return a list comprising elements: a function of time which gives the ZCB price to that time
