Implementing Quantlib

Etienne Barrier

Hello Mr. BALLABIO,


We are engineering students at Arts et Métiers ParisTech and we are conducting a feasibility study to see if Quantlib can be used by structurers in banks, to implement Quantlib in FEDERAL FINANCE (CREDIT MUTUEL ARKEA). 


We worked with QuantlibXL to price bonds and Vanilla options, but soon we had difficulties with it as it is explained in the power point attached. In this attached file you will find our suggestions to improve the use of Quantlib, like architecture problems we had and the lack of online help/tutorials.


As we don’t really know who to ask for advices, and because you are one of the developers, we though you would be able to help us. Please let us know if you have any idea or comments about what we have summarized in the attached file.


Sincerely,


Aymeric FRANCOISE, Rémi RUAUD, Etienne BARRIER

Salut Etienne,

Have you read Implementing QuantLib? Should give you guys a good head start.

If you don't want to buy the book, the blog posts are good too:

Good luck

Re: Implementing Quantlib

igitur
In reply to this post by Etienne Barrier
Hi,

Your PowerPoint presentation mentions that there is no forum, but clearly you've just reached it. I find this mailing list very active and helpful. This is definitely the place to ask questions that you have. 

That said, my anecdotal recommendation would be to get to know Quantlib (the C++ library) first, before you try to use the QuantlibXL Excel add-in. Browse through the example projects and learn the general concepts (instruments, yield term structures, etc). Once you get how it works, and understand the objects that need to be created, the Excel add-in makes more sense. 

Yes, Quantlib is complex. That's a feature. 

I do somewhat agree that a comprehensive online resource with more examples would be useful. The QuantlibXL library doesn't come with a help file, but the QuantlibXL website ( http://quantlib.org/quantlibxl/allfunctions.html ) lists and describes all the add-in's functions.

regards,

Francois Botha

QuantLibXL does come with a help file.  It gets packaged with the
release at:

    Docs/QuantLibXL-docs-1.8.0.chm

The help file is an exact copy of the web site.  I guess it's there so
that you can still get QUantLibXL help even if the internet isn't
working.

Kind Regards,
Eric

Re: Implementing Quantlib

Luigi Ballabio
Hello Etienne,
    apologies for the delay.  The resources that were pointed out in the other answers are correct, but it seems like we should make them easier to find.  Do you remember where you started looking for resources (the QuantLib site, the repo on GitHub, elsewhere), and what made it difficult for you to find resources?

Thanks,
    Luigi
