The course Stochastics I gives an introduction to different classes of stochastic processes. Key aspects are:
- Counting processes and renewal processes; Poisson point process
- Wiener process
- 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.
The first exam occurs on 19th of February 2016.
There will be a second exam on 1st of April, 2016.
The lecture notes for stochastics II are currently under revision. The already updated chapters can be found here.
