This paper presents new results on strong numerical schemes, which are appropriate for scenario analysis, filtering and hedge simulation, for stochastic differential equations (SDEs) of jump-diffusion type. It provides first order strong approximations for jump-diffusion SDEs driven by Wiener processes and Poisson random measures. The paper covers first order derivative-free, drift-implicit and jump-adapted strong approximations. Moreover, it provides a commutativity condition under which the computational effort of first order strong schemes is independent of the total intensity of the jump measure. Finally, a numerical study on the accuracy of several strong schemes applied to the Merton model is presented. © VSP 2006.
