Short Course: Stochastic Compactness and SPDEs

Short Course: Stochastic Compactness and SPDEs

logo des grk 2339

                                  Speaker: Martina Hofmanova, University of Bielefeld


Dates: February 11th – 13th, 2020.

Venue: FAU Erlangen, Cauerstraße 11, 91058 Erlangen, Germany.

How to get there:


This lecture series will focus on construction of probabilistically weak solutions to SDEs and SPDEs. At the core will be a simplified version of the stochastic compactness method based on the Skorokhod representation theorem. It provides a rather general and flexible tool with a wide range of applicability to different models. As an example, I will discuss the stochastic mean curvature flow for graphs, a quasilinear degenerate parabolic SPDE with an interesting structure.
