Detailed Description

Black-volatility term structure.

This abstract class acts as an adapter to BlackVolTermStructure allowing the programmer to implement only the blackVolImpl(Time, Real, bool) method in derived classes.

Volatility are assumed to be expressed on an annual basis.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

default constructor

Warning

term structures initialized by means of this constructor must manage their own reference date by overriding the referenceDate() method.

Member Function Documentation

Real blackVarianceImpl (Time maturity, Real strike) const [protected, virtual]

Returns the variance for the given strike and date calculating it from the volatility.
