Disposable<Array> expectation (Time t0, const Array & x0, Time dt) const [virtual]

returns the expectation $ E(mathrm{x}_{t_0 + Delta t} | mathrm{x}_{t_0} = mathrm{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 StochasticProcess.

Disposable<Matrix> covariance (Time t0, const Array & x0, Time dt) const [virtual]

returns the covariance $ V(mathrm{x}_{t_0 + Delta t} | mathrm{x}_{t_0} = mathrm{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 StochasticProcess.

Disposable<Matrix> stdDeviation (Time t0, const Array & x0, Time dt) const [virtual]

returns the standard deviation $ S(mathrm{x}_{t_0 + Delta t} | mathrm{x}_{t_0} = mathrm{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 StochasticProcess.

Disposable<Array> apply (const Array & x0, const Array & dx) const [virtual]

applies a change to the asset value. By default, it returns $ mathrm{x} + Delta mathrm{x} $.

Reimplemented from StochasticProcess.

Disposable<Array> evolve (Time t0, const Array & x0, Time dt, const Array & dw) const [virtual]

returns the asset value after a time interval $ Delta t $ according to the given discretization. By default, it returns [ E(mathrm{x}_0,t_0,Delta t) + S(mathrm{x}_0,t_0,Delta t) cdot Delta mathrm{w} ] where $ E $ is the expectation and $ S $ the standard deviation.

Reimplemented from StochasticProcess.

Time time (const Date &) const [virtual]

returns the time value corresponding to the given date in the reference system of the stochastic process.

Note:

As a number of processes might not need this functionality, a default implementation is given which raises an exception.

Reimplemented from StochasticProcess.
