If you have a question about this talk, please contact David Smith. In this talk we will discuss a variety of different problems related to questions related to the long time behaviour of solutions of stochastic differential equations. This is an important question with relevance in many fields of applied mathematics, such as modelling turbulent diffusion and molecular dynamics and can be addressed with a variety of different techniques such as for example homogenization. Once the limiting behaviour has been established, one needs to design appropriate numerical algorithms that are able to capture it correctly. This is a very delicate problem and in addressing this, we will discuss how the recently developed theory of modified equations/backward error analysis for SDEs can explain the behaviour of existing stochastic numerical methods and guide the construction of more efficient ones.
