Detailed Description

Merton (1973) extension to the Black-Scholes stochastic process.

This class describes the stochastic process for a stock or stock index paying a continuous dividend yield given by [ dS(t, S) = (r(t) - q(t) - ac{igma(t, S)^2}{2}) dt + igma dW_t. ]

Examples:

ConvertibleBonds.cpp, DiscreteHedging.cpp, and EquityOption.cpp.
