On the martingale property in stochastic volatility models based on time-homogeneous diffusions
Lions and Musiela (2007) give sufficient conditions to verify when a stochastic exponential of a continuous local martingale is a martingale or a uniformly integrable martingale. Blei and Engelbert (2009) and Mijatovi\'c and Urusov (2012c) give necessary and sufficient conditions in the case of perfect correlation (\rho=1). For financial applications, such as checking the martingale property of the stock price process in correlated stochastic volatility models, we extend their work to the arbitrary correlation case (-1
