    /*! This instrument is an aggregate of other instruments. Its NPV
        is the sum of the NPVs of its components, each possibly
        multiplied by a given factor.

        <b>Example: </b>
        \link Replication.cpp
        static replication of a down-and-out barrier option

        \warning Methods that drive the calculation directly (such as
                 recalculate(), freeze() and others) might not work
