The work at Manchester in this theme covers a wide range of topics in the field of probability and its application areas.
The research carried out within this theme is internationally recognised for its numerous and significant contributions to the theory of random walks and Levy processes; Brownian motion and diffusion processes; Markov, branching and point processes; Dirichlet forms; stochastic analysis; stochastic calculus; stochastic differential equations; stochastic partial differential equations; optimal stopping and optimal stochastic control.
Areas of expertise
One of the most intriguing problems that is ubiquitous in virtually every aspect of life is how to predict the outcome of a future event in which uncertainty plays a role.
Financial and insurance mathematics
Mathematical finance is concerned with mathematical/probabilistic modelling of financial markets. We promote and capitalise on the strong interplay between research in finance and insurance.
Our staff, students and postgraduate researchers have access to a fantastic range of facilities across the University.
