Calibrated the Heston Model to market Option prices

function C=HestonCall(St,K,r,T,vt,kap,th,sig,rho,lda)
%PURPOSE: computes the option price using Heston's model.
%USAGE: C=HestonCall(St,K,r,sig,T,vt,kap,th,lda,rho)
%INPUT: St - scalar or vector, price of underlying at time t
%       K - scalar or vector, strike price
%       r - scalar or vector, continuously compound risk free rate expressed as a
%       positive decimal number.
%       sig- scalar or vector, volatility of the volatility of the
%       underlying(same time units as for r)  
%       T - scalar or vector, time to maturity (same time units as for r)
%       vt - scalar or vector, instantaneous volatility
%       kap - scalar or vector, is the rate at which vt reverts to th
%       th - scalar or vector, is the long vol, or long run average price
%       volatility; as t tends to infinity, the expected value of ?t tends to ? 
%       lda - scalar or vector, risk premium for volatility
%       rho - scalar or vector, correlation between underlying and
%       volatility (rho<0 generates the leverage effect)
%OUTPUT: C - scalar or vector, Heston's model call option price
