Book DetailsProceedings of Symposia in Pure MathematicsVolume: 57; 1995; 621 ppMSC: Primary 34; 35; 58; 60; 82; 47; 81
This book deals with current developments in stochastic analysis and its interfaces with partial differential equations, dynamical systems, mathematical physics, differential geometry, and infinitedimensional analysis. The origins of stochastic analysis can be found in Norbert Wiener's construction of Brownian motion and Kiyosi Itô's subsequent development of stochastic integration and the closely related theory of stochastic (ordinary) differential equations. The papers in this volume indicate the great strides that have been made in recent years, exhibiting the tremendous power and diversity of stochastic analysis while giving a clear indication of the unsolved problems and possible future directions for development. The collection represents the proceedings of the AMS Summer Research Institute on Stochastic Analysis, held in July 1993 at Cornell University. Many of the papers are largely expository in character while containing new results.
ReadershipResearchers in probability theory, partial differential equations, statistical mechanics, dynamical systems, and mathematical physics.

Reviews

This very rich volume ... is an extremely valuable contribution to the literature on the interplay between stochastics and analysis. The editors have done a marvelous job in collecting a number of papers on subjects which in their entirety constitute the current activities in the field ... This volume has a particularly high standard and appears to be of special significance to current research activity in the everincreasing field of stochastics and analysis.
