A note in preparation to the exam is here

May 6, 2018 8:30 AM

As assignment, each PhD student has to prepare a presentation on one of the following topics:

- Regularity of solutions of SDE
- Absolute continuity of probability laws.
Starting basic references are Chapters 17 and 18 of [DØP] book.

Please communicate within the end of April which one of the two topics you have selected.

The presentation is going to be held on May 7th during classes.

The idea is that youprepare an overview presentation, say around 30-40 minutes (max 1 hour).

The topics are in itself wide and central in the original questions of Malliavin calculus. However your scope of your presentation is to provide an overview of:

- what is the problem, what are the difficulties
- what is the main approach
- what are the main results
- selection of proof (sketch of the central idea)

The first lecture is on Monday January 15th, welcome to the course!

In this course we shall study some techniques of stochastic integration beyond the Ito calculus, or the so called non-anticipating integration. Here "anticipating" and "non-anticipating" is referred to the information flow. We shall also introduce the concept of stochastic derivative. 

These concepts and the calculus associated constitute a baggage of tools that has turned out to be powerful both in the development of stochastic theory, mathematical statistics, and also directly in applications. The applications we are focusing on are related to financial modelling and control.

This course introducing the Malliavin calculus both for Brownian motion and for Levy processes. The necessary introduction to Levy processes will be given in class.

Details about the lectures will be posted under "Sche...
