Detailed Description

analytic Heston-model engine based on Fourier transform

Integration detail: Two algebraically equivalent formulations of the complex logarithm of the Heston model exist. Gatherals [2005] (also Duffie, Pan and Singleton [2000], and Schoutens, Simons and Tistaert[2004]) version does not cause discoutinuities whereas the original version (e.g. Heston [1993]) needs some sort of 'branch correction' to work properly. Gatheral's version does also work with adaptive integration routines and should be preferred over the original Heston version.
