How does it work
The parametrizaion is the QuantLb one, meaning you can find most of the information in the project website. The volatility surface is a matrix where the first row are the different expiry dates and the first column the strike values.
The sticky strike approach, as explained in wikipedia and with some more detail in this Derman publication at The Sticky-Strike Rule, says that the same volatility can be used for the underlying process for different spot prices.
