Cashflow

Cashflow[{c0, c1, ..., cn}]
represents a series of cash flows occurring at unit time intervals.

Cashflow[{c0, c1, ..., cn}, q]
represents cash flows occurring at time intervals q.

Cashflow[{{time1, c1}, {time2, c2}, ...}]
represents cash flows occurring at the specified times.

DetailsDetails

  • TimeValue[Cashflow[...], interest, t] computes the time value of a cash flow as a single equivalent payment at the specified time t. Possible cash flow calculations include net present value, discounted cash flow, and internal rate of return.
  • Times and amounts can be given as numbers or arbitrary symbolic expressions.
  • In Cashflow[{{time1, c1}, ...}], the can be given as numerical values or date expressions.
  • Cashflow[{c0, c1, c2, ...}] is equivalent to Cashflow[{{0, c0}, {1, c1}, {2, c2}, ...}].
  • TimeValue[Cashflow[{{date0, c0}, ...}], r, date] computes the time value of a cash flow at date.
  • Cashflow[Annuity[...]] converts an Annuity object to a Cashflow object.
