PROCESSES AND APPLICATIONS
July 11-23, 2005
(Partially funded by NBHM,
CSIR and INSA)
Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IITG),
a two-week Summer School on Stochastic Processes and Applications at
IIT Guwahati during 11-23 July 2005.
Aim of the Programme
Stochastic processes have a
rich and well-developed mathematical theory and at the same time, they
found applications in such diverse fields as engineering, management,
and finance, physics, seismology, psephology, genetics and many others. They play a key role in
various natural and social phenomena.
An overall familiarity with both theoretical and practical
particularly recent developments, is highly desirable for teachers,
as well as practitioners.
this scenario in view, it is proposed to give an
overall introduction to the basic theoretical frameworks for stochastic
processes as also to touch upon some of the many applications. Thus, the chief objective
of the programme
is primarily to acquaint the participants with the basic ingredients of
field of stochastic processes and their applications.
- Introduction to Stochastic Processes
- Markov Processes with Discrete and Continuous Time and
- Martingales in Discrete and Continuous time
- Applications of Stochastic Processes to:
- Stochastic Finance
- Time Series
- Manufacturing Systems
- Signal Processing, etc.
