Thanks to this theorem, we know that most SDEs in fact have a solution. We now discuss some simple (but important) examples of SDEs which have closed form   Simulations of stocks and options are often modeled using stochastic differential equations (SDEs).

Because of the randomness associated with stock price movements, the models cannot be developed using ordinary differential equations (ODEs). A typical model used for stock price dynamics is the following stochastic differential equation:   the true gradient.

With one more detail—the idea of a natural gradient (Amari, )—stochastic variational inference has an attractive form: 1. Subsample one or more data points from the data. Analyze the subsample using the current variational parameters. Implement a closed-form update of the variational parameters.
