This is the Debian GNU/Linux r-cran-foptions package of fAsianOptions, a set of functions for pricing and hedging of asian (i.e. averaging) option financial options, and part of Rmetrics, a collection of packages for financial engineering and computational finance. Both fAsianOptions and Rmetrics were written and compiled primarily by Diethelm Wuertz. This package was created by Dirk Eddelbuettel . The sources were downloaded from and are also available from and all CRAN mirrors as e.g. The package was renamed from its upstream name 'fAsianOptions' to 'r-cran-fasianoptions' to fit the pattern of CRAN (and non-CRAN) packages for R.
