Detailed Description

template<class I1, class I2> class QuantLib::ConvexMonotoneInterpolation< I1, I2 >

Convex monotone yield-curve interpolation method.

Enhances implementation of the convex monotone method described in 'Interpolation Methods for Curve Construction' by Hagan & West AMF Vol 13, No2 2006.

A setting of monotonicity = 1 and quadraticity = 0 will reproduce the basic Hagan/West method. However, this can produce excessive gradients which can mean P&L swings for some curves. Setting monotonicity < 1 and/or quadraticity > 0 produces smoother curves. Extra enhancement to avoid negative values (if required) is in place.
