Detailed Description

template<template< class > class MC, class RNG, class S = Statistics>

class QuantLib::MonteCarloModel< MC, RNG, S >" General-purpose Monte Carlo model for path samples.

The template arguments of this class correspond to available policies for the particular model to be instantiated---i.e., whether it is single- or multi-asset, or whether it should use pseudo-random or low-discrepancy numbers for path generation. Such decisions are grouped in trait classes so as to be orthogonal---see mctraits.hpp for examples.

The constructor accepts two safe references, i.e. two smart pointers, one to a path generator and the other to a path pricer. In case of control variate technique the user should provide the additional control option, namely the option path pricer and the option value.

Examples: DiscreteHedging.cpp.
