Learning outcomes

This course will provide an introduction to the theory of Stochastic Differential Equations (SDEs), mainly based on the Brownian motion type of noise. The purpose of this course is to introduce and analyse probability models that capture the stochastic features of the system under study to predict the short and long term effects that this randomness will have on the systems under consideration. The study of probability models for continuous-time stochastic processes involves a broad range of mathematical and computational tools. This course will strike a balance between the mathematics and the applications. The main applications will be mathematical finance, biology and populations evolution, also with respect to their descriptions in terms of the associated SDEs. Topics include: construction of Brownian motion; martingales in continuous time; stochastic integral; Ito calculus; stochastic differential equations; Girsanov theorem; martingale representation; the Feynman-Kac formula and Lévy processes.

Examination Methods

Oral exam with written exercises:
the exam is based on open-ended questions as well as on the discussion of written exercises to be carried out during the test itself. Open questions and exercises are aimed at verifying the knowledge related to the topics developed in the course program, hence concerning problems of both the basic theory of stochastic processes, and of stochastic differential equations.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
