4 Other Stochastic Volatility Models The list of stochastic volatility models that have been proposed for option pricing is long. 3 In contrast, for many Levy models proposed in the literature (see, for example, Overhaus et al. [31] and Shoutens [32]), the characteristic function is available, such that the approach discussed on page 38 can be used 3 Schoebel/Zhou [34] have shown that it is possible to obtain the characteristic function of logarithm of the stock price if the short volatility itself is given as an OU process.

While it is possible to formulate this idea in terms of stochastic functions in the spirit of Brace et al. [36], we consider here the more direct approach of writing in terms of a sufficiently well-behaved function G and an m-dimensional parameter process Z (Zt )t 0 as t (T, k) : G Zt T t, k Xt For example, we use a d-dimensional Brownian motion W (W 1 , , W d ) and assume that the m-dimensional process Z is the unique strong solution to an SDE d dZt j (Zt ) dt j (Zt ) dWt j 1 m. for vectors (z), 1 (z), , d (z) The function G is chosen such that it gives a reasonable shape of the implied volatility for all possible parameter values z .

We assume without loss of generalization that the price processes C (Ct )t [0,T] for 1, , n are defined until T; for an option with an earlier maturity T T, we simply set Ct : CT for t [T , T]. We also assume that C1 , , Cn are bounded from below. To apply the same idea as for the case of local volatility, we now stipulate that the vector (X, C1 , , Cn ) of market instruments is given in terms of a finite-dimensional m 1 diffusion Z (Zt )t [0,T] with open state space as 0 by a function (Xt , C1t , , Cnt ) (Zt ) n 1 The function : 0 is assumed to be invertible and differentiable.
