Payoff__Payoff_Type__RSO

The name RSO derives from RiskScalingOptions.
The payoff is given by max{ ε[βx-λ(K¹⁻ᵅ)(xᵅ))] , 0 }, where β, λ, K, α are all constants.
It is further assumed that β >= 0, 0 <= α <= 1 and λ >= 0
Furthermore ε can take only the values 1 or -1 and corresponds to a payoff attribute called
Payoff::Direction

Defining the exercise price as the quantity (K¹⁻ᵅ)(xᵅ), the parameter α is an index of exercise price uncertainty.
As α tends to 0 the exercise price approaches the constant K
