Approximation scheme for solutions of backward stochastic differential equations via the representation theorem
Annales Mathématiques Blaise Pascal, Tome 13 (2006) no. 1, pp. 17-29.

We are interested in the approximation and simulation of solutions for the backward stochastic differential equations. We suggest two approximation schemes, and we study the 𝕃 2 induced error.
