Randomness is an important factor in modelling and analysing various-real life situations. This course covers some key aspects in stochastic modelling, including the theory underlying Brownian motions and diffusion processes, as well as techniques for numerical simulations.
Lecture notes will be provided during the course. Numerous books on Brownian motions will be of help, including:
