Current Established Course Syllabus

  • English
  • If sufficient demand
  • The course is a natural continuation of the study of probability theory as a part of mathematical education in Lund University. The aim of the course is to provide introduction into the theory of
    stochastic processes. The course gives necessary insight into the theory of stochastic processes
    for PhD students in other areas that use stochastic processes in their research. The course is the basic part for further studies in the theory of stochastic processes and stochastic differential equation. With respect to the theory there is no overlap of this course with any other course given at the Mathematical center.
  • Stochastic integrals of deterministic functions. Shift operators Correlation functions.
    Spectral representation. Infinite-dimensional distributions. Kolmogorov Theorem on ex-
    tension. Markov moments, martingales. Markov processes, Markov properties and related
    operators. Trajectories of Markov processes with continuous time. Infinitesimal operators.
    Diffusion processes. Stochastic differential. Ito’s formula.
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • have developed the ability for mathematical communication orally and in writing
    be familiar with basic concepts and methods in stochastic processes
    have acquired basic knowledge for further studies in mathematics and probability in particular.
