Detailed Description

Black-Scholes (1973) stochastic process.

This class describes the stochastic process $ S $ for a stock given by [ dln S(t) = (r(t) - ac{sigma(t, S)^2}{2}) dt + sigma dW_t. ]


while the interface is expressed in terms of $ S $, the internal calculations work on $ ln S $.

Examples: Replication.cpp.
