PDE from a probability point of view
Thu, Jan 1, 2004
UBC, Vancouver, Canada
These notes are for a course I gave while on sabbatical at UBC. The topics covered are: stochastic differential equations, solving PDEs using probability, Harnack inequalities for nondivergence form elliptic operators, martingale problems, and divergence form elliptic operators. This course presupposes the reader is familiar with stochastic calculus; see the notes on my web page for Stochastic Calculus, for example. These notes for the most part are based on my book Diffusions and Elliptic Operators, Springer-Verlag, 1997.
