Description Usage Arguments Details Value See Also Examples

Use the grid solver to generate instrument prices via `find_present_value`

and run them
through a bisective root search method until a constant volatility matching the provided
instrument price has been found.

implied_jump_process_volatility(instrument_price, instrument, ...,
starting_volatility_estimate = 0.85, relative_tolerance = 0.005,
max.iter = 100, max_vola = 4)
``` |

`instrument_price` |
Target price for root finder |

`instrument` |
Instrument to search for the target price on, passed as
the sole instrument to |

`...` |
Additional arguments to be passed on to |

`starting_volatility_estimate` |
Bisection method original guess |

`relative_tolerance` |
Relative tolerance in instrument price defining the root-finder halting condition |

`max.iter` |
Maximum number of root-finder iterations allowed |

`max_vola` |
Maximum volatility to try |

Unlike `american_implied_volatility`

, this routine allows for any legal
term structures and equity-linked default intensities. For that reason, it eschews
the control variate tricks that make `american_implied_volatility`

so much faster.

Note that equity-linked default intensities can result in instrument prices that are not monotonic in volatility. This bisective root finder will find a solution but not necessarily any particular one.
