Detailed Description

Garman-Klass volatility model.

This class implements a concrete volatility model based on high low formulas using the method of Garman and Klass in their paper 'On the Estimation of the Security Price from Historical Data' at http://www.fea.com/resources/pdf/a_estimation_of_security_price.pdf

Volatilities are assumed to be expressed on an annual basis.
