By Daniel J. Duffy

This booklet introduces the reader to the C++ programming language and the way to exploit it to jot down functions in quantitative finance (QF) and comparable components. No past wisdom of C or C++ is needed. - event with VBA, Matlab or different programming language is enough. The ebook adopts an incremental procedure; ranging from uncomplicated rules then relocating directly to complex advanced options after which to real-life purposes in monetary engineering. There are 5 significant components within the publication: * C++ basics and object-oriented pondering in QF * complex object-oriented positive aspects resembling inheritance and polymorphism * Template programming and the traditional Template Library (STL) * An advent to GOF layout styles and their purposes in QF purposes the types of purposes comprise binomial and trinomial tools, Monte Carlo simulation, complicated bushes, partial differential equations and finite distinction tools. This booklet includes a CD with all resource code and lots of important C++ periods for you to use on your personal functions. Examples, attempt instances and functions are at once correct to QF. This publication is the best spouse to Daniel J. Duffy's ebook monetary software Pricing utilizing C++ (Wiley 2004, 0470855096)"

Example text

This is where C++ differs somewhat from non-object-oriented languages, namely the concept of function overloading. This means that it is possible to define several functions having the same name and return type but differing only in the number and type of arguments. 5 ) * T )/ tmp; double d2 = d1 - tmp; return (K * exp(-r * T)* N(-d2)) - (U * exp((b-r)* T) * N(-d1)); } This function calculates the price of a put option. Note that that the function returns a double value (the price of the put option) while all needed parameters (such as the volatility, interest rate and so on) are none other than the member data of the object that have already been initialised in the constructor!

1 Accessibility issues A class consists of members in general. A member is either a member data or a member function. All members in a class are accessible from any other members of the class. However, a class can decide to ‘expose’ certain members to outside clients just as it can decide to keep some members ‘hidden’ from the outside world. To this end, we can define private and public member areas: r r Public member: any client can access it Private member: not accessible to clients, only to member of the class In general, data and functions are tightly coupled and this principle is called encapsulation.

Otherwise you will get a linker error. 1 INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES In this chapter we design and implement our first real working C++ code. Our goal is to model a European option by a C++ class. We know that a class has member data and member functions in general and in this case we model the following option attributes: r r r r Strike price Volatility Risk-free interest rate Expiry date as member data. Furthermore, we are interested in designing call and put options as well as modelling some of their interesting properties, namely option price and option sensitivities, for example: r r r Option delta Option gamma Other option sensitivities (for more options, see Haug, 1998) We set up the basic infrastructure by implementing the software in two files.
