```
Volatility = blsimpv(Price, Strike, Rate, Time, Value,
Limit, Yield, Tolerance, Class)
```

using a Black-Scholes model
computes the implied volatility of an underlying asset from the market
value of European call and put options.

`Volatility`

is the implied volatility of the
underlying asset derived from European option prices, expressed as
a decimal number. If no solution is found, `blsimpv`

returns `NaN`

.

Any input argument can be a scalar, vector, or matrix. When a value is a scalar, that value is used to price all the options. If more than one input is a vector or matrix, the dimensions of all non-scalar inputs must be identical.

`Rate`

, `Time`

, and `Yield`

must
be expressed in consistent units of time.
