Volatility impliedVolatility (Real targetValue, Real accuracy = 1e-4, Size maxEvaluations = 100, Volatility minVol = 1.0e-7, Volatility maxVol = 4.0) const


Options with a gamma that changes sign have values that are not monotonic in the volatility, e.g binary options. In these cases impliedVolatility can fail and in any case is meaningless. Another possible source of failure is to have a targetValue that is not attainable with any volatility, e.g. a targetValue lower than the intrinsic value in the case of American options.
