Finite Difference Method for Multi-Asset Option Valuation

Description

This package implements an efficient finite difference method for valuing multi-asset options in the Black-Scholes world. The model assumes static volatilities and correlations. The implementation allows users to vary the option setup (number of underlying assets, call vs. put, European vs. American, etc.) as well as some of the features of the numerical method (mesh spacing, timestepping scheme, etc.).
