    public class MarketForwardRateAgreement
    extends AbstractAnalyticProduct
    implements AnalyticProduct
    Implements the valuation of a market forward rate agreement using curves (discount curve, forward curve). The value of the forward rate agreement at its maturity time t is
    (F(t)-K) / (1 + F(t) * dcf(periodStart,periodEnd)) where F(t) is the forward evaluated at maturity and dcf(periodStart,periodEnd) is a given paymentOffset. The value of the forward rate agreement returned for an earlier time is the above payoff multiplied with the corresponding discount factor curve. Note that this valuation ignores a possible convexity adjustment between the forward and the discount factors since the above formula is not a linear function of F. Put differently, if this product is used to calibrate a forward curve to a forward rate agreement, then the calibrated forward curve will include the convexity adjustment.

                                       AnalyticModel model)
        Description copied from interface: AnalyticProduct
        Return the valuation of the product using the given model. The model has to implement the modes of AnalyticModel.
        Specified by:
        getValue in interface AnalyticProduct
        evaluationTime - The evaluation time as double. Cash flows prior and including this time are not considered.
        model - The model under which the product is valued.
        The value of the product using the given model.
