Improved Multilevel Monte Carlo Convergence using the Milstein Scheme
In this paper we show that the Milstein scheme can be used to improve the convergence of the multilevel Monte Carlo method for scalar stochastic differential equations. Numerical results for Asian,Expand
Multilevel Monte Carlo Approximation of Distribution Functions and Densities
This work constructs and analyzes multilevel Monte Carlo methods for the approximation of distribution functions and densities of univariate random variables and applies them to smooth path-independent and path-dependent functionals and to stopped exit times of stochastic differential equations (SDEs).

Multilevel Monte Carlo methods and applications to elliptic PDEs with random coefficients
A novel variance reduction technique for the standard Monte Carlo method, called the multilevel Monte Carlo Method, is described, and numerically its superiority is demonstrated. Expand
A Multilevel Monte Carlo Method for Computing Failure Probabilities
It is proved that the error in the solution produced by the multiscale method decays independently of the fine scale variation in the data or the computational domain. Expand
Efficient Risk Estimation via Nested Sequential Simulation
A new algorithm is proposed to estimate one risk measure, the probability of a large loss, and it is proposed that the risk estimator has a faster convergence order compared to the conventional uniform inner sampling approach. Expand
Multilevel Monte Carlo Methods
Applications to stochastic solution of integral equations are given for the case where an approximation of the full solution function or a family of functionals of the solution depending on a parameter of a certain dimension is sought. Expand
On irregular functionals of SDEs and the Euler scheme
It is shown that the approximation of the payoff of the binary option has asymptotically sharp strong convergence rate 1/2, which has consequences for multilevel Monte Carlo methods. Expand

We show that multigrid ideas can be used to reduce the computational complexity of estimating an expected value arising from a stochastic differential equation using Monte Carlo path simulations. InExpand
An Introduction to Stochastic Integration
The aim of this appendix is to provide all necessary definition and results with respect to Martingales and stochastic integration. Since some of the underlying properties and theorems require a lotExpand
Numerical Solution of Stochastic Differential Equations
