Numerical Solutions of Stochastic Differential Equations by using Heun's method

  • Adel S. Hussain Amedey Institute, Duhok Polytechnic University, Kurdistan Region of Iraq


In this work, we   study  the numerical method for solving Stochastic differential equations. Because of the difficulty of finding analytical solutions for many of the Stochastic differential equations the Heun's method  was used. Numerical simulations for different selected  examples are implemented. And the difference between the numerical solution and the exact solution was also found.
