Calculate prices or sensitivities of lookback options using Longstaff-Schwartz model

```
[PriceSens,Paths,Times,Z]
= lookbacksensbyls(RateSpec,StockSpec,OptSpec,Strike,Settle,ExerciseDates)
```

```
[PriceSens,Paths,Times,Z]
= lookbacksensbyls(___,Name,Value)
```

`[`

returns
prices or sensitivities of lookback options using the Longstaff-Schwartz
model for Monte Carlo simulations. `PriceSens`

,`Paths`

,`Times`

,`Z`

]
= lookbacksensbyls(`RateSpec`

,`StockSpec`

,`OptSpec`

,`Strike`

,`Settle`

,`ExerciseDates`

)`lookbacksensbyls`

computes
prices of European and American lookback options. For American options,
the Longstaff-Schwartz least squares method calculates the early exercise
premium. `lookbacksensbyls`

calculates values of
fixed- and floating-strike lookback options. To compute the value
of a floating-strike lookback option, `Strike`

must
be specified as `NaN`

.
