18.176 Stochastic Calculus
Introduction to stochastic processes with an emphasis on their relationship to other branches of analysis, especially partial differential equations. Topics include Brownian motion, continuous parameter martingales, Ito's theory of stochastic differential equations, Levy processes, and may also address Malliavin''s calculus. Students should have familiarity with Lebesgue integration and its application to probability, as well knowledge of the Fourier transform and other basic tools of analysis.
