Differential equations driven by rough paths: An approach via discrete approximation. (English) Zbl 1163.34005
Author’s abstract: A theory of systems of differential equations of the form
$dy^i = \sum_jf^i_j(y)dx^i,$ where the driving path $$x(t)$$ is nondifferentiable, has recently been developed by Lyons. I develop an alternative approach to this theory, using (modified) Euler approximations, and investigate its applicability to stochastic differential equations driven by Brownian motion. I also give some other examples showing that the main results are reasonably sharp.
