School on Stochastic PDE, March 7-10, 2017

​This intensive course on stochastic differential equation is organized under the umbrella of the EU Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Staff Exchange program CHiPS.

The meeting is held in Gothenburg in Sweden, and is hosted by the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg.

The course leader is Stig Larsson. Local organizer is Klas Modin.

The course is built around a series of lectures (4 x 45min per day) given by the teachers. In addition, there shall be time for discussion, questions, and exercises. Suitable background for participants: multivariate calculus, basic knowledge of ODE, and basic knowledge of linear PDE particularly the heat and wave equations. Some familiarity with the Finite Element Method is also good.

Preliminary course contents
