Could anyone help with parameter estimation for the afore mentioned models? I have data from the S&P 500 index for a month with all contributing data required - strike, maturity, underlying etc.  I would like a way to estimate the jump and volatility parameters for the Heston/Camara model and the BS implied volatility using the data.

Many Thanks,
