I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in Mechanical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University. I do research in biologically inspired robotics. My research interests include mechanical design of legged robots, dynamical systems, computational neuroobiology, and numerical simulation. I have over 15 years of experience with Matlab and C and have developed these two projects, among others:

  • QTWriter: Export QuickTime Movies with Matlab
  • SDETools: Matlab Toolbox for the Numerical Solution of Stochastic Differential Equations

I also have experience to varying degrees in AppleScript, Arduino, CSS, HTML, Java, JavaScript, LabVIEW, LaTeX, Mathematica, Matlab MEX, Regex, OpenGL, Python, QuickTime, Tcl/Tk, UNIX, XML, and XSLT.

comment close form for stochastic integral
If the SDE is written correctly, that is not an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process and your integrals don't seem to match it either. An O-U process has additive noise (i.e., diffusion function is not a function of the state variable) while the SDE as written has multiplicative noise. Also, an O-U process definitely does have a known analytical solution (see Doob, Ann. Math. 43, 1942).
