Question: How are SDEs integrated?

This question is probably for maple devs...

I was wondering if it would be possible to outline what algorithm is used to generate replications (realizations) for various processes by the Finance:-SamplePath command (and friends). For example in the code like this:


X := WienerProcess();
A := SamplePath(X(t), t = 0 .. 1, timesteps = 100, replications = 20);

Is it the Euler-Maruyama method?

Alternatively maybe you can show the portion of the code that is responsible for the integration of the SDE that the Wiener process defines.

I can't find any details related to this information in the help, and it would be very helpful to know this (and more importantly have it in the help section).
