Detailed Description

Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process class.

This class describes the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process governed by [ dx = a (r - x_t) dt + sigma dW_t. ]

Member Function Documentation

Real expectation (Time t0, Real x0, Time dt) const [virtual]

returns the expectation $ E(x_{t_0 + Delta t} | x_{t_0} = x_0) $ of the process after a time interval $ Delta t $ according to the given discretization. This method can be overridden in derived classes which want to hard-code a particular discretization.

Reimplemented from StochasticProcess1D.

Real stdDeviation (Time t0, Real x0, Time dt) const [virtual]

returns the standard deviation $ S(x_{t_0 + Delta t} | x_{t_0} = x_0) $ of the process after a time interval $ Delta t $ according to the given discretization. This method can be overridden in derived classes which want to hard-code a particular discretization.

Reimplemented from StochasticProcess1D.

Real variance (Time t0, Real x0, Time dt) const [virtual]

returns the variance $ V(x_{t_0 + Delta t} | x_{t_0} = x_0) $ of the process after a time interval $ Delta t $ according to the given discretization. This method can be overridden in derived classes which want to hard-code a particular discretization.

Reimplemented from StochasticProcess1D.
