“A random journey among stochastic processes”

Wednesday 5 February 2020, h. 14:30 - Room 2BC30 - Samuele Stivanello (Padova, Dip. Mat.)


This seminar will cover a broad selection of topics, ranging from the basic definition of a probability space, passing through some famous results like the Law of Large Numbers and the Central Limit Theorem, and ending with the notion of convergence of stochastic processes.

In order to fulfill this intent, and in the spirit to be accessible to a mathematical audience of non experts, in this introductory talk to the field of stochastic processes I will make extensive use of examples and intuitive definitions.

In the very last part of the talk I will mention some results of my research, regarding the convergence of a random walk in random environment.
