Stochastics Research Group

Stochastics is one of the main research areas at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Helsinki. The areas studied are Markov processes, Gaussian processes (especially fractional Brownian motion), self-similar processes, martingales, stochastic analysis, large deviations and mathematical statistics. Stochastic models are studied in connection to actuarial and financial mathematics, economics, queueing and telecommunications theory.

Post graduate studies are supported by the Finnish Graduate School in Stochastics
