Mini-course on Numerical methods for SPDE: strong and weak convergence analysis
November 06-10, 2017, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing

This mini-course is given by Stig Larsson (Göteborg).
The mini-course presents a survey of methods for proving strong convergence and weak convergence of numerical methods for the stochastic heat and wave equations. Strong convergence refers to convergence with respect to a norm, for example, mean square convergence. Proofs typically involve representation of the error using the semigroup theory or energy estimates and using the Ito isometry or the Burkhold--Davies--Gundy inequality. Weak convergence involves the error in some functional of the solution. Proofs may involve representation of the weak error in terms of the Kolmogorov equation and may use integration by parts from the Malliavin calculus. The main part of the lectures will be concerned with the linear stochastic heat and wave equations. As an example of a more difficult problem, we will briefly discuss the stochastic Cahn--Hilliard equation.
Topics covered in this mini-course are:

  • Stochastic integration in Hilbert space. Stochastic evolution problem in Hilbert space. Semigroup, mild solution. Stochastic heat equation. Stochastic wave equation.
  • Numerical approximation by finite elements and Euler's method. Strong convergence.
  • Weak convergence. Malliavin calculus.
  • Stochastic Cahn--Hilliard equation.

    Online crash course on numerics for SDEs at Central South University (Changsha)
    Fall 2020

    The course is organised by Xiaojie Wang (Central South University, Changsha) and given by David Cohen (Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg).
    The mini-course is designed to give a concise and accessible introduction to numerical discretisations of stochastic differential equations (SDEs). We assume only a basic competence in calculus and probability theory. Topics: Basics of stochastic processes and SDEs. Numerical methods for SDEs. Strong and weak convergence. Applications.
