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 stochastic theta method gives a computational procedure for simulating ordinary stochastic differential equations. The method involves a free parameter, THgr. Here, we characterise the precise value of THgr beyond which the region of linear asymptotic stability of the method becomes unbounded. The cutoff point is seen to differ from that in the deterministic case. Computations that suggest further results are also given.
