A structure-preserving numerical discretization of reversible diffusions
Communications in Mathematical Sciences
We propose a numerical discretization scheme for the infinitesimal generator of a diffusion process based on a finite volume approximation. The resulting discrete-space operator can be interpreted as a jump process on the mesh whose invariant distribution is precisely the cell approximation of the Boltzmann invariant measure and preserves the detailed balance property of the original stochastic process. Moreover this approximation is robust in the sense that these properties remain valid independently of the grid size.doi:10.4310/cms.2011.v9.n4.a6 fatcat:rc6vezxthnf4na2daoz6aksxcm
