Waveform relaxation (WR) methods have been used as a technique to solve ODEs problems in parallel. In this thesis, the same technique is applied to solve linear stochastic differential equations (SDEs) systems with multiplicative noise. The idea is to implement the WR methods by splitting the deterministic part or both the deterministic and stochastic parts of a SDE at the equation level and to solve different subcomponents of the system independently using previous waveform iterates as inputs. Some various splitting schemes as well as the discrete numerical methods are employed to solve the waveform equations, in this case the semi-implicit and implicit methods are compared. Parallel implementation of this method is also examined by comparing its performance on SGI Origin2000 and 3000 machines at The University of Queensland using different number of processors. The algorithm is written in Fortran90 with OpenMP as the application program interface (API).
