STK2130 - Modelling by Stochastic Processes
Schedule, syllabus and examination date
Definition and examples of stochastic processes. Markov processes with finite and countable state space in discrete and continuous time.
The course gives the background for simple analytical derivation and numerical calculations for stochastic processes in discrete and continuous time.
Students who are admitted to study programmes at UiO must each semester register which courses and exams they wish to sign up for in Studentweb.
If you are not already enrolled as a student at UiO, please see our information about admission requirements and procedures.
