About Event

Many mathematical modeling scenarios involve an inherent level of uncertainty.

Recently it has been a common practice to incorporate noise in deterministic systems to represent random effects and build models closer to reality. There is growing interest in adding stochastic terms to mathematical models in neuroscience, epidemiology, biology, physics, engineering, finance, and many other areas. In this context, stochastic differential equations (theory derived from the intersection of random processes and differential equations) are widely used in the study of phenomena subject to noise and fluctuations of a different nature, and in practical situations where uncertainty plays an important role.

This lecture will present an introduction to these types of equations, their various applications and methods for their numerical-computational simulation. We will also discuss some current research questions in the area.
