Abstract:
In our work we propose new Exact Algorithms for simulation of diffusions with discontinuous drift and new methodology for simulating Brownian motion jointly with its local time. In the second part of the thesis we introduce Metropolis-adjusted Langevin algorithm which uses local geometry and we prove geometric ergodicity in case of benchmark distributions with light tails.
