The workshop is part of the triennial FoCM conference series,
organized by the Society for Foundations of Computational Mathematics
hosted by the Universidad de la República in Montevideo, December 11 - 20, 2014.

Topics and scope of the workshop

The stochastic Computation workshop covers a range of subjects on the interface between numerical analysis and stochastic processes with focus on the numerical analysis of stochastic (partial) differential equations. The topics under consideration include

  • the construction and analysis of new algorithms for stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs),
  • approximation of backward stochastic differential equations (BSDEs) and stochastic differential equations (SDEs) driven by more general processes like Levy processes or fractional Brownian motion,
  • the construction and analysis of Multilevel Monte Carlo methods,
  • Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods and
  • approximation of SDEs and SPDEs with non-Lipschitz nonlinearities like the Heston model or stochastic Navier-Stokes equations.
