Course abstract

This course covers some basic objects of stochastic analysis. In particular, the following topics are discussed: construction and properties of Brownian motion, stochastic integration, Itô's formula and applications, stochastic differential equations and connection with partial differential equations.


Familiarity with measure-theoretic probability as in the standard D-MATH course "Probability Theory" will be assumed. Textbook accounts can be found for example in

Lecture notes

Lecture notes are available here .

Each week a new exercise sheet will be posted here before Thursday. The exercises will then be discussed during the exercise class. If you want your exercises to be corrected, please hand in your solutions the week after either during the exercise class or in your assistant's tray located in the hallway in front of HG E 65 by Thursday evening.
