Detailed Description

helper class for one-asset implied-volatility calculation

The passed engine must be linked to the passed quote (see, e.g., VanillaOption to see how this can be achieved.)

Note:

this function is meant for developers of option classes so that they can implement an impliedVolatility() method.

Member Function Documentation

static boost::shared_ptr<GeneralizedBlackScholesProcess> clone (const boost::shared_ptr< GeneralizedBlackScholesProcess > &, const boost::shared_ptr< SimpleQuote > &) [static]

The returned process is equal to the passed one, except for the volatility which is flat and whose value is driven by the passed quote.
