Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The recent article [2] reveals the strong convergence of the Euler-Maruyama solution to the exact solution of a stochastic differential equation under the local Lipschitz condition. However, it does not provide us with an order of convergence. In this note, we will show the rate of convergence still under the local Lipschitz condition, but the local Lipschitz constants of the drift coefficient, valid on balls of radius R, are supposed not to grow faster than log R while those of the diffusion coefficient are not than.
