    //! Variance gamma process

    /*! This class describes the stochastic volatility
    process.  With a Brownian motion given by
        db = \theta dt + \sigma dW_t
    then a Variance Gamma process X is defined by evaluating this
    Brownian motion at sample times driven by a Gamma process. If T is
    the value of a Gamma process with mean 1 and variance rate \f$ \nu
    \f$ then the Variance Gamma process is given by
        X(t) = B(T)
