Detailed Description

template<class RNG = PseudoRandom, class S = Statistics> class QuantLib::MCVarianceSwapEngine< RNG, S >

Variance-swap pricing engine using Monte Carlo simulation,.

as described in Demeterfi, Derman, Kamal & Zou, 'A Guide to Volatility and Variance Swaps', 1999

Possible enhancements

define tolerance of numerical integral and incorporate it in errorEstimate

Tests

returned fair variances checked for consistency with implied volatility curve.
