Abstract
We want to discuss the option pricing on stochastic volatility market models, in which we are going to consider a generic function β (νt ) for the drift of volatility process. It is our intention choose any equivalent martingale measure, so that the drift of volatility process, respect at the new measure, is zero. This technique is possible when the Girsanov theorem is satisﬁed, since the stochastic volatility models are uncomplete markets, thus one has to choice an arbitrary risk price of volatility. In all this cases we are able to compute the price of Vanilla options in a closed form. To name a few, we can think to the popular Heston’s model, in which the solution is known in literature, unless of an inverse Fourier transform.
