SDE
Stochastic Differential Equations


SDE is a MATLAB library which illustrates the properties of stochastic differential equations and some algorithms for handling them, by Desmond Higham.

The original version of these routines is available at "http://www.maths.strath.ac.uk/~aas96106/algfiles.html".

Languages:

SDE is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN77 version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
