Jump Diffusion Model - Volatility and Mean of Jumps

I am trying to understand the concept of jump diffusion model. So far what I've understood is that by adding a Jump parameter to a GBM (Geometric Brownian Motion) we can generate a Jump diffusion ...

Poisson parameter in Merton's Jump-Diffusion Model to price call option

I've been taught the following European call valuation formula under jump-diffusion model: \begin{equation} price = E[e^{-rT}max(S_T-K,0)] =\sum_{j = 0}^\infty e^{-rT}P_j(\lambda)E[max(S_T-K,0)|J=j] \...

Understanding and simulating the jumps in Merton's Jump-Diffusion SDE?

I found this great post deriving the solution to the Merton Jump-Diffusion SDE $$S_t = S_0\exp\left(\left(\mu - \frac{\sigma^2}{2}\right)t + \sigma W_t\right)\prod_{j=0}^{N_t}V_j$$ The first part of ...

Bond PDE under an Affine Jump Diffusion model

Under the Jump extended Vasicek model, the dynamics of the short rate are as follow : $$dr_t=\kappa(\theta-r_t)dt+\sigma\sqrt{r_t}\,dW_t+d\left(\sum\limits_{i=1}^{N_t}\,J_i\right)$$ where $N_t$ ...

stochastic vol modelling not enough for smile

It seems in practice models that include Stochastic Volatility alone do not have enough power to produce actual observed implied vol surfaces. Is there recent empirical literature documenting this?
