401-3600-19L | Student Seminar in Probability Theory: Limited number of participants. Registration to the seminar will only be effective once confirmed by email from the organizers. | 4 credits | 2S | A.‑S. Sznitman, J. Bertoin, V. Tassion, W. Werner | |

Abstract | Selected topics from Probability Theory will be discussed. | ||||

Learning objective | The seminar is a natural complement to the material discussed in the lecture on probability theory in the 5th semester. | ||||

Content | The seminar is centered around a topic in probability theory which changes each semester. Example of topics are random walks and electric networks, Markov chains, stochastic integrals, coupling methods, etc. | ||||

Prerequisites / Notice | There is only a limited number of slots available for this seminar. Participation will only be effective once confirmed by the organizers. | ||||

401-3642-00L | Brownian Motion and Stochastic Calculus | 10 credits | 4V + 1U | W. Werner | |

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, Ito's formula and applications, stochastic differential equations and connection with partial differential equations. | ||||
