Detailed Description

Equity/FX volatility (smile) surface.

This abstract class defines the interface of concrete Equity/FX volatility (smile) surfaces which will be derived from this one.

Volatilities are assumed to be expressed on an annual basis.

It's only in absence of smile that the concept of (at-the-money) forward volatility makes sense.

Warning

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