## Surveys in Stochastic ProcessesJochen Blath, Peter Imkeller, Sylvie Rœlly The 33rd Bernoulli Society Conference on Stochastic Processes and Their Applications was held in Berlin from July 27 to July 31, 2009. It brought together more than 600 researchers from 49 countries to discuss recent progress in the mathematical research related to stochastic processes, with applications ranging from biology to statistical mechanics, finance and climatology. This book collects survey articles highlighting new trends and focal points in the area written by plenary speakers of the conference, all of them outstanding international experts. A particular aim of this collection is to inspire young scientists to pursue research goals in the wide range of fields represented in this volume. |
