Stochastic Calculus and Differential Equations for Physics and Finance

Book Description

Stochastic provides a powerful description of a specific class of stochastic processes in physics and . However, many econophysicists struggle to understand it. This book presents the subject simply and systematically, giving graduate students and practitioners a better understanding and enabling them to apply the methods in practice. The book develops Ito and Fokker-Planck equations as approaches to stochastic processes, using those methods in a unified way. The focus is on nonstationary processes, and statistical ensembles are emphasized in time series . Stochastic is developed using general martingales. Scaling and fat tails are presented via diffusive . Fractional Brownian motion is thoroughly analyzed and contrasted with Ito processes. The Chapman-Kolmogorov and Fokker-Planck equations are shown in and by example to be more general than a Markov process. The book also presents new ideas in financial economics and a critical survey of econometrics.
