Course description

This course gives an introduction to the modelling of random phenomena in time. Randomly developing systems are described mathematically by stochastic processes indexed by a scalar parameter interpreted as time. The goal of this course is to introduce important classes of stochastic processes, to study their properties and to present examples in which these processes frequently occur in applications.



It is expected that students are familiar with (measure-theoretic) probability theory as taught in the standard course "Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie". Lecture notes for the latter course (in German) can be bought during Question times (“Präsenz”) at a price of 15 CHF.
