Notes

opt_asian_geom_price computes the price of an Asian geometric continuous average-rate option for constant volatility, , risk-free rate, , and cost of carry, (see Kemna and Vorst (1990)). For a given strike price, , the price of a call option with underlying price, , and time to expiry, , is

and the corresponding put option price is

where

and

with

is the cumulative Normal distribution function,

The option price is computed for each strike price in a set , , and for each expiry time in a set , .
