Tests

·
the correctness of the returned value is tested by reproducing results available in literature.
·
the correctness of the returned greeks is tested by reproducing results available in literature.
·
the correctness of the returned greeks is tested by reproducing numerical derivatives.
·
the correctness of the returned implied volatility is tested by using it for reproducing the target value.
·
the implied-volatility calculation is tested by checking that it does not modify the option.
·
the correctness of the returned value in case of cash-or-nothing digital payoff is tested by reproducing results available in literature.
·
the correctness of the returned value in case of asset-or-nothing digital payoff is tested by reproducing results available in literature.
·
the correctness of the returned value in case of gap digital payoff is tested by reproducing results available in literature.
·
the correctness of the returned greeks in case of cash-or-nothing digital payoff is tested by reproducing numerical derivatives.
