Numerical integration of stochastic differential equations

MATH-450

Lecturer(s) :

Abdulle Assyr

Language:

English

Summary

In this course we will introduce and study numerical integrators for stochastic differential equations. These numerical methods are important for many applications.

Content

Introduction to stochastic processes 

Ito calculus and stochastic differential equations 

Numerical methods for stochastic differential equations (strong and weak convergence, stability, etc.)

Stochastic simulations and multi-level Monte-Carlo methods

 

 

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

Numerical Analysis, Advanced probability

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Teaching methods

Ex cathedra lecture, exercises in classroom
