The convergence of the split-step backward Euler (SSBE) method applied to stochastic differential equation with variable delay is proven in -sense. Almost sure convergence is derived from the convergence by Chebyshev’s inequality and the Borel-Cantelli lemma; meanwhile, the convergence rate is obtained.
