Detailed Description

Square-root stochastic-volatility Bates process.

This class describes the square root stochastic volatility process incl jumps governed by [ begin{array}{rcl} dS(t, S) &=& (r-d-lambda m) S dt +sqrt{v} S dW_1 + (e^J - 1) S dN \ dv(t, S) &=& ppa ( heta - v) dt + sigma sqrt{v} dW_2 \ dW_1 dW_2 &=& rho dt \ omega(J) &=& ac{1}{sqrt{2pi \delta^2}} \xpleft[-ac{(J-0)^2}{2elta^2}right] \nd{array} ]

Examples: EquityOption.cpp.

Member Function Documentation

Disposable<Array> evolve (Time t0, const Array & x0, Time dt, const Array & dw) const [virtual]

returns the asset value after a time interval $ Delta t $ according to the given discretization. By default, it returns [ E(mathrm{x}_0,t_0,Delta t) + S(mathrm{x}_0,t_0,Delta t) cdot Delta mathrm{w} ] where $ E $ is the expectation and $ S $ the standard deviation.
