MATH 866: Stochastic Processes II (3 )
This is a second course in stochastic processes, focused on stochastic calculus with respect to a large class of semi-martingales and its applications to topics selected from classical analysis (linear PDE), finance, engineering, and statistics. The course will start with basic properties of martingales and random walks and then develop into the core program on Ito's stochastic calculus and stochastic differential equations. These techniques provide useful and important tools and models in many pure and applied areas. Prerequisite: MATH 727 and MATH 865. LEC

MATH 951: Advanced Partial Differential Equations II (3 )
The course uses functional analytic techniques to further develop various aspects of the modern framework of linear and nonlinear partial differential equations. Sobolev spaces, distributions and operator theory are used in the treatment of linear second-order elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic equations. In particular we discuss the kind of potential, diffusion and wave equations that arise in inhomogeneous media, with an emphasis on the solvability of equations with different initial/boundary conditions. Then, we will survey the theory of semigroup of operators, which is one of the main tools in the study of the long-time behavior of solutions to nonlinear PDE. The theories and applications encountered in this course will create a strong foundation for studying nonlinear equations and nonlinear science in general. Prerequisite: MATH 950 or permission of the instructor. LEC
