greeks provides functions to compute
financial option prices and sensitivities of financial option prices for
European, American, Asian, and Digital options in the Black Scholes
model, and in more general jump diffusion models. Furthermore, based on
the implementations of Vega, efficient functions for calculating implied
volatilities not just for European options, but also for American,
Asian, and digital options are provided.
Classical formulas are implemented for European options in the Black Scholes Model. Furthermore, functions to calculate Malliavin Monte Carlo Greeks are given, as presented e.g., in Hudde, A. & Rüschendorf, L. (2016). European and Asian Greeks for exponential Lévy processes (https://arxiv.org/abs/1603.00920). These functions work for classical payoff functions, as well as for any custom square integrable function provided by the user. Additionally, these calculations are not restricted to the Black Scholes model, but work for more general Lévy Jump diffusion model, which is also customizable by the user.
The option prices and volatilities for European options can be
displayed with the interactive shiny app by calling
Most of the options prices and Greeks can easily be calculated with the function Greeks.

implied volatilities for a wide range of option types and payoff
