Contents

We introduce stochastic integration and applications. Different topics cover, for instance, stochastic differential equations, jump processes and applications in financial mathematics.


Qualification Goals

The students shall

  • gain insight into the research field of stochastic analysis,
  • learn basic structures and techniques of stochastic analysis,
  • get to know selected applications of stochastic analysis,
  • practice mathematical methods (developing mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof methods),
  • practice oral communication skills in the recitation classes by practicing free speech in front of an audience.

Prerequisites

None. The competences taught in the following modules are recommended: either Foundations of Mathematics and Linear Algebra I and Linear Algebra II or Basic Linear Algebra, either Analysis I and Analysis II or Basic Real Analysis, Probability Theory.
