Abstract

We consider stochastic Runge-Kutta methods for Itô stochastic ordinary differential equations, and study their mean-square convergence properties for problems with small multiplicative noise or additive noise. First we present schemes where the drift part is approximated by well-known methods for deterministic ordinary differential equations, and a Maruyama term is used to discretize the diffusion. Further, we suggest improving the discretization of the diffusion part by taking into account also mixed classical-stochastic integrals, and we present a suitable class of fully derivativefree methods. We show that the relation of the applied step-sizes to the smallness of the noise is essential to decide whether the new methods are worth the effort. Simulation results illustrate the theoretical findings. Copyright © by SIAM. Unauthorized reproduction of this article is prohibited.
