Current events:
  • Lecturers: Prof. Pierre Vallois (Institut Elie Cartan de Lorraine, France), and Prof. Paavo Salminen (Department of Mathematics, Åbo Akademi University, Finland)
  • The course is a part of the 24th international Jyväskylä Summer School programme
  • Material and exercises available for participants at https://koppa.jyu.fi/en/courses/164645

In these five lectures we discuss topics like one-dimensional diffusions, Bessel processes, excursions, logistic SDE, perpetual integral functionals of diffusions, and maximum increase and decrease of Brownian motion. The course is mainly based on the lecturers’ and their collaborators’ earlier and more recent research on the above listed topics. After an introductory lecture on diffusions, each lecture forms its own entity on a particular problem. Applications, e.g., in molecular biology and mathematical finance are indicated.


The course is aimed at graduate students, but undergraduate students with strong background in probability theory and stochastic processes are also welcome. Researchers and postdocs in stochastics might also found the presented material interesting and useful.

Modes of study:

Obligatory attendance at lectures, and completing the exercises.
