Efficient simulation of Lévy areas

  title={Efficient simulation of Lévy areas},
  author={K. Scheicher},
Discretization methods to simulate stochastic differential equations belong to the main tools in mathematical finance. For Ito processes, there exist several Euleror Runge-Kutta-like methods which are analogues of well known approximation schemes in the non stochastic case. In the multidimensional case, there appear several difficulties, caused by the mixed second order derivatives. These mixed terms (or more precisely their differences) correspond to special random variables called Levy… Expand

Liberating the weights
Necessary and sufficient conditions for QMC tractability and strong QMC tractsability are obtained for the weighted Sobolev spaces with general weights, and it is shown that the analysis of variance decomposition of functions from one of the SoboleV spaces is equivalent to the decomposing of functions with respect to an orthogonal decomposition.
