The stochastic Euler scheme is known to converge to the exact solution of a stochastic differential equation (SDE) with globally Lipschitz continuous drift and diffusion coefficients. Recent results extend this convergence to coefficients that grow, at most, linearly. For superlinearly growing coefficients, finite-time convergence in the strong mean-square sense remains. In this article, we answer this question to the negative and prove, for a large class of SDEs with non-globally Lipschitz…

Strong convergence of the backward Euler approximation for the finite element discretization of semilinear parabolic SPDEs with non-global Lipschitz drift driven by additive noise
The backward Euler method applied to semilinear parabolic parabolic stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) driven by additive noise is dealt with and the strong convergence of fully discrete schemes toward the mild solution is proved.

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.

Convergence of Numerical Schemes for Stochastic Differential Equations
The convergence in probability of the approximating process to the exact one is proved and the hypotheses are in particular satisfied when the coefficients of the Stochastic Differential Equation are only locally Lipschitz and the solution does not explode.
