Elementary Probability Calculus and Statistics, Stochastics I

Intended audience

Elective module:

Bachelor of Mathematics, Mathematical Biometrics, Mathematical Economics;
Master of Mathematics, Mathematical Economics


The course Stochastics II gives an introduction to different classes of stochastic processes. Key aspects are:

  • Counting processes and renewal processes; Poisson point process
  • Wiener process
  • Martingales
  • Lévy processes
  • Stationary processes in discrete time

We shall discuss analytic, geometric and asymptotic properties of stochastic models to provide the students with knowledge of statistical methods and simulation algorithms.


50% of all homework credits and the final exam. For qualifying the obtained exercise points a registration with SLC is required.


Final Exam

There is an oral exam. The first exams will take place on March 12th and 13th.

The second exam will take place on April 6th.
