# Stochastic Partial Differential Equations: Six Perspectives

Share this page *Edited by *
*Rene A. Carmona; Boris Rozovskii*

The field of Stochastic Partial Differential Equations
(SPDEs) is one of the most dynamically developing areas of
mathematics. It lies at the cross section of probability, partial
differential equations, population biology, and mathematical
physics. The field is especially attractive because of its
interdisciplinary nature and the enormous richness of current and
potential future applications.

This volume is a collection of six important topics in SPDEs
presented from the viewpoint of distinguished scientists working in
the field and related areas. Emphasized are the genesis and
applications of SPDEs as well as mathematical theory and numerical
methods.

#### Readership

Graduate students and researchers working in probability theory, PDEs, fluid dynamics, turbulence, chaos, particle systems, population biology, nonlinear filtering and financial mathematics.
