Selected topics in stochastic analysis


Starting today, Mrs. Rzepka has a list for you to sign up for the exam. The possible dates are:
  • 02.08.2017, 10:00-12:00, room M/612
  • 20.09.2017, 10:00-12:00, room M/612
  • Exercise sheet 2 is available online
  • Starting next Wednesday (17.05.2017), every other Wednesday our class will meet in room 919
Starting today, we switch the topic to the Stein method.
The exercise 4 part ii) of Exercise Sheet 1 is postponed until the next Exercise session.
The department website had an error in the date of the first meeting of the course. Because of this in the first class we reviewed some properties of Brownian motion and slowly introduced the Wiener integral and discussed some of it's properties.
This website is created.

Exercise Sheets


The lectures and exercise sessions take place on Mondays 13-15 and Wednesdays 10-12 in room M 611. The exercise sessions will always take place on Wednesdays, for the precise schedule see the table below keeping in mind that it is subject to change. All changes to the schedule will be announced in class and on this websita. The first lecture is on Wednesday 19.04.2017.
