public abstract class AbstractIndex extends AbstractProductComponent
Base class for indices. Indices are small functions mapping time and a vector of random variables to a random variable, where the time is the fixing time of the index.

    • AbstractIndex

      public AbstractIndex(String name, String currency)
      Initialize name and currency of an index.
      name - The name of an index. Used to map an index on a curve.
      currency - The natural currency of an index. This more for compatibility purposes, since the information sould be contained in the name.

      public AbstractIndex(String name)
      Initialize the name of an index.
      name - The name of an index. Used to map an index on a curve.
    • AbstractIndex

      public AbstractIndex()
      Initialize an abstract index which does not have a dedicated name or currency, e.g. a function of other indicies.

    • getValue

      public abstract RandomVariable getValue(double fixingTime, TermStructureMonteCarloSimulationModel model) throws CalculationException
      Description copied from interface: TermStructureMonteCarloProduct
      This method returns the value random variable of the product within the specified model, evaluated at a given evalutationTime. Note: For a lattice this is often the value conditional to evalutationTime, for a Monte-Carlo simulation this is the (sum of) value discounted to evaluation time. Cashflows prior evaluationTime are not considered.
      Specified by:
      getValue in interface TermStructureMonteCarloProduct
      Specified by:
      getValue in class AbstractTermStructureMonteCarloProduct
      fixingTime - The time on which this products value should be observed.
      model - The model used to price the product.
      The random variable representing the value of the product discounted to evaluation time
      CalculationException - Thrown if the valuation fails, specific cause may be available via the cause() method.
    • getName

      public String getName()
      Returns the name of the index.
      The name of the index.
