Course plan

No of lectures

ca 10

Recommended for

PhD students of statistics, mathematics, computer science (with mathematical interest)

The course was last given

at LiU never, but in 2019 at Brixen-Bressanone


- teach simulation and inference methods for SDEs
- make students familiar with the YUIMA R package


R, knowledge of probability and statistics


The course will be run by guest lecturers from Italy, Japan and Switzerland. STIMA is organizing this SDE school.

This SDE school has been run previously:
The lectures/labs will be run by guest lecturers from a number of Italian, Japanese, and Swiss institutions who will visit Linkoping for this purpose. This course was originally meant to run in spring 2020, but was cancelled due to the imposed travel/gathering restrictions. Hence, there is always the risk that some travel restrictions will be imposed and we will have to cancel again in 2022. The course will also be open to outside of LiU students.
