Description

The intensive exchange between mathematicians and users has led in recent years to a rapid development of stochastic analysis. Of the users, the physicists form perhaps the most important group, giving direction to the mathematicians' research and providing a source of intuition. White noise analysis has emerged as a viable framework for stochastic and infinite dimensional analysis. Another growth area is the theory of stochastic partial differential equations. Gauge field theories are attracting increasing attention. Dirichlet forms provide a fruitful link between the mathematics of Markov processes and the physics of quantum systems. The deterministic-stochastic interface is addressed, as are Euclidean quantum mechanics, excursions of diffusions and the convergence of Markov chains to thermal states.
