In this reading group we will be make use the following two books:
- "Lévy Processes and Stochastic Calculus" (Second Edition) by David Applebaum
- "Fluctuations of Lévy Processes with Applications" by Andreas E. Kyprianou
The schedule lists the material that participants are suggested to read before each session. Members of the reading group are encouraged to participate in presenting the material.
We are using Teams to conduct the session. Here is the link to the meeting. Please email me or Terence if you've signed up and haven't been added to the team.
A basic knowledge of measure and probability theory is needed. The material in Section 1.1 of Lévy Processes and Stochastic Calculus serves as a good review of these topics. Familiarity with Brownian motion is helpful but not essential.
