Stochastic differential equations are often simulated with the Monte Carlo Euler method. Convergence of this method is well understood in the case of globally Lipschitz continuous coefficients of the stochastic differential equation. However, the important case of superlinearly growing coefficients has remained an open question. The main difficulty is that numerically weak convergence fails to hold in many cases of superlinearly growing coefficients. In this paper we overcome this difficulty…

Strong Convergence of Euler-Type Methods for Nonlinear Stochastic Differential Equations
This work gives a convergence result for Euler--Maruyama requiring only that the SDE is locally Lipschitz and that the pth moments of the exact and numerical solution are bounded for some p >2 and shows that the optimal rate of convergence can be recovered if the drift coefficient is also assumed to behave like a polynomial.
