"Chaotic phenomena described by stochastic equations"
It is well known that many natural phenomena such as population dynamics, stock exchange, diffusion of particles, can be seen as 'chaotic'.
To give a mathematical description of these `chaotic' phenomena has been developed the theory of stochastic processes and of the related stochastic differential equations.
Starting by the fundamental concept of Brownian motion, I shall introduce the main ideas and the basic tools in order to understand some easy models driven by stochastic equations.
Moreover, I shall describe how stochastic equations can be used to study some deterministic model.
