STAT498: Introduction to Stochastic Processes II (2021)

This is a 10-week lecture-based course focused on introducing stochastic processes and their applications. Throughout the course, we mainly take a continuous-time point of view and a large part of the course aims to cover useful classes of continuous-time stochastic processes including Poisson processes, renewal processes, birth-and-death processes, Brownian motion, diffusion processes, and geometric Brownian motion.
