A stochastic scheme of approximation for ordinary differential equations. (English) Zbl 1190.60058

Summary: We provide a stochastic method for approximating solutions of ordinary differential equations. To this end, a stochastic variant of the Euler scheme is given by means of Markov chains. For an ordinary differential equation, these approximations are shown to satisfy a large number law, and a central limit theorem for the corresponding fluctuations about the solution of the differential equation is proven.
