In the present paper, we first deal with the discretization of stochastic differential equations. We elaborate on the analysis of the weak error of the Euler scheme by Talay and Tubaro 31 to contruct schemes with quicker weak rate of convergence for SDEs corresponding to an infinitesimal generator with smooth coefficients. We also extend this analysis to the case of a discontinuous drift coefficient. In a second part, we present two applications of stochastic gradient algorithms in finance.
