Undergraduate Course: Applied Stochastic Differential Equations (MATH10053)
|School||School of Mathematics
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||Stochastic methods, stochastic differential equations (SDEs) in particular, are used extensively in finance, industry and in sciences. Reflecting this, this course provides an introduction to stochastic differential equations emphasising applications and computations over more formal aspects. It considers strategies for exact, approximate, and numerical solutions of SDEs, and emphasises the relationship with partial differential equations.
