When looking for asymptotic results for some statistical model, global asymptotic equivalence, in the Le Cam sense, often proves to be a useful tool that allows to work in a simpler model. In this talk, after giving an introduction to the main characters involved in the Le Cam theory, I will focus on equivalence results for diffusion processes. More precisely, I will present a global asymptotic equivalence result, in the sense of the Le Cam Δ-distance, between scalar diffusion models with unknown drift function and small variance on the one side, and the corresponding Euler scheme on the other side. The time horizon T is kept fixed and both the cases of discrete and continuous observation of the path are treated. The diffusion coefficient is non-constant, bounded but possibly tending to zero. The asymptotic equivalences are established by constructing explicit equivalence mappings.
