# Time Dependent Heston Model

@article{Benhamou2009TimeDH, title={Time Dependent Heston Model}, author={E. Benhamou and Emmanuel Gobet and Mohammed Miri}, journal={Econometrics: Applied Econometrics \& Modeling eJournal}, year={2009} }

The use of the Heston model is still challenging because it has a closed formula only when the parameters are constant [S. Heston, Rev. Financ. Stud., 6 (1993), pp. 327-343] or piecewise constant [S. Mikhailov and U. Nogel, Wilmott Magazine, July (2003), pp. 74-79]. Hence, using a small volatility of volatility expansion and Malliavin calculus techniques, we derive an accurate analytical formula for the price of vanilla options for any time dependent Heston model (the accuracy is less than a…

Numerical results from extensive dynamic hedging experiments suggest that, when facing a -measure market with stiff volatility skews and non-trivial jumps, the dbHJ model is better than the plain (double) Heston and Black–Scholes models, and slightly outperforms the Heston stochastic volatility jump-diffusion (HJ) model and the Merton model in mitigating the jump risk of an option.
