Double barrier hitting time approximation

description

Attached is a write up I did on approximating symmetric double barrier hitting times.

Long story short, use t = (a/(sigma N^{-1}(1 - p/4)))^2 where p is uniform [0,1]. That should be a little faster :-)

You can check it against the existing routine using a q-q plot. E.g. NIST
