Robustness and uncertainty management in feedback systems through stochastic and deterministic methods. Introductory random processes, Kalman filtering, and norms of signals and systems. Special Topics in Financial Mathematics. A basic knowledge of probability and statistics as well as transform methods for solving PDEs is assumed. This course develops some of the techniques of stochastic calculus and applies them to the theory of financial asset modeling.

Concepts of risk-neutral pricing and martingale representation are introduced in the pricing of options. Topics covered will be selected from standard options, exotic options, American derivative securities, term-structure models, and jump processes. Mathematical Finance'.

Prerequisites: Good knowledge of probability theory and differential equations. Some familiarity with analysis and measure theory is helpful.

A course on pricing financial derivatives, risk management, and optimal portfolio selection using mathematical models. Students will be introduced to methods of Stochastic, Ito Calculus for models driven by Brownian motion. Models with jumps will also be discussed. Instructor: Cvitanic.

In addition, in looking through Caltech's current course offerings, it appears that there are several courses in statistics and stochastic systems that might benefit from better integration. These include:. Catalog listing Introduction to fundamental ideas and techniques of stochastic analysis and modeling. Random variables, expectation and conditional expectation, joint distributions, covariance, moment generating function, central limit theorem, weak and strong laws of large numbers, discrete time stochastic processes, stationarity, power spectral densities and the Wiener-Khinchine theorem, Gaussian processes, Poisson processes, Brownian motion.

The course develops applications in selected areas such as signal processing Wiener filter , information theory, genetics, queuing and waiting line theory, and finance. The following table lists all of the courses that I was able to find that have been taught in the last four years. Enrollments when given are for , based on data from the registrar. The course listings below are from the Caltech catalog, mainly to serve as a reference for the rest of the information on this page. Introduction to Stochastic Processes and Modeling.

## Stochastic Processes and Related Topics

Resampling methods and the bootstrap. Not offered — Instructor: Hill. Spacecraft Navigation. Prerequisite: CDS a. This course will survey all aspects of modern spacecraft navigation, including astrodynamics, tracking systems for both low-Earth and deep-space applications including the Global Positioning System and the Deep Space Network observables , and the statistical orbit determination problem in both the batch and sequential Kalman filter implementations. The course will describe some of the scientific applications directly derived from precision orbital knowledge, such as planetary gravity field and topography modeling.
