Limit theorems for Multilevel estimators with and without weights. Comparisons and applications

Abstract : In this work, we will focus on the Multilevel Monte Carlo estimators. These estimators will appear in their standard form, with weights and in their randomized form. We will recall the previous existing results concerning these estimators, in terms of minimization of the simulation cost. We will then show a strong law of large numbers and a central limit theorem.After that, we will focus on two application frameworks.The first one is the diffusions framework with antithetic discretization schemes, where we will extend the Multilevel estimators to Multilevel estimators with weights, and the second is the nested framework, where we will analyze the weak and the strong error assumptions. We will conclude by implementing the randomized form of the Multilevel estimators, comparing this to the Multilevel estimators with and without weights.
