Topics in SDEs and their link to (S)PDEs

The aim of this event is to present some of the current results in the research area of stochastic analysis.

In particular, we will discuss stochastic differential equations, forward-backwards stochastic differential equations, stochastic partial differential equations, the interplay between these areas and some of their various applications (e.g. financial mathematics).  We want to bring together researchers from the north of England with an interest in stochastic analysis, particularly young researchers, to stimulate discussions and possibly start new collaborations.
