Nonlinear PDEs, Stochastic Control and Filtering: New Methods and Applications

 29 May - 02 Jun 2017

ICMS, 15 South College Street Edinburgh

  • Istvan Gyongy, University of Edinburgh
  • Boris Rozovsky, Brown University
  • Mikhail Safonov, University of Minnesota


This workshop was held in honour of the 75th birthday of Nicolai Krylov. he objective of this workshop was to revisit classical problems and explore new directions where real world problems can be successfully studied by an exchange of ideas and methods from PDE, probability, and numerical analysis. The workshop brought together world leading researchers who made fundamental contributions to the theory of nonlinear PDEs, probability and numerical analysis, and young scientists at different stages of their career. The interplay between nonlinear PDEs, stochastic and numerical analysis was extremely fruitful in the development of these areas.
