Abstract

In this paper we study the numerical solutions of the stochastic functional differential equations of the following form $$du(x,\;t)\;=\;f(x,\;t,\;u_t)dt\;+\;g(x,\;t,\;u_t)dB(t),\;t\;>\;0$$ with initial data $u(x,\;0)\;=\;u_0(x)\;=\;{\xi}\;{\in}\;L^p_{F_0}\;([-{\tau},0];\;R^n)$. Here $x\;{\in}\;R^n$, ($R^n$ is the ${\nu}\;-\;dimenional$ Euclidean space), $f\;:\;C([-{\tau},\;0];\;R^n)\;{\times}\;R^{{\nu}+1}\;{\rightarrow}\;R^n,\;g\;:\;C([-{\tau},\;0];\;R^n)\;{\times}\;R^{{\nu}+1}\;{\rightarrow}\;R^{n{\times}m},\;u(x,\;t)\;{\in}\;R^n$ for each $t,\;u_t\;=\;u(x,\;t\;+\;{\theta})\;:\;-{\tau}\;{\leq}\;{\theta}\;{\leq}\;0\;{\in}\;C([-{\tau},\;0];\;R^n)$, and B(t) is an m-dimensional Brownian motion.
