## Abstract

We propose a robust and efficient numerical discretization scheme for the infinitesimal generator of a diffusion process based on a finite volume approximation. The resulting discrete-space operator can be interpreted as a jump process on the mesh whose invariant measure is precisely the cell approximation of the Boltzmann distribution of the original process. Moreover the resulting jump process preserves the detailed balance property of the original stochastic process.
