periods. The simulation approximates continuous-time stochastic processes by the
Euler approach.

Bates models are bivariate composite models. Each Bates model consists of two coupled univariate models.

One model is a geometric Brownian motion (

`gbm`

) model with a stochastic volatility function and jumps.$$d{X}_{1t}=B(t){X}_{1t}dt+\sqrt{{X}_{2t}}{X}_{1t}d{W}_{1t}+Y(t){X}_{1t}d{N}_{t}$$

This model usually corresponds to a price process whose volatility (variance rate) is governed by the second univariate model.

The other model is a Cox-Ingersoll-Ross (

`cir`

) square root diffusion model.$$d{X}_{2t}=S(t)[L(t)-{X}_{2t}]dt+V(t)\sqrt{{X}_{2t}}d{W}_{2t}$$

This model describes the evolution of the variance rate of the coupled Bates price process.

This simulation engine provides a discrete-time approximation of the underlying
generalized continuous-time process. The simulation is derived directly from the
stochastic differential equation of motion. Thus, the discrete-time process approaches
the true continuous-time process only as `DeltaTimes`

approaches
zero.
