July 27 - August 07, 2015, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
"Stochastic Processes and Applications Mongolia 2015" research school will be hosted by the National University of Mongolia. Situated in the capital city Ulan Bator, this event takes place at the very heart of Asia and is open to all. The two-week research school will look at an extensive programme of classical and contemporary topics from the theory of stochastic analysis, as well as its applications. There will be an extensive exposition covering the insertion of stochastics into biology, economics, random matrix theory, optimal stopping and control, combinatorial models, self-similarity and of course SDEs and PDEs. The fusion of activities during these two weeks will facilitate the emergence of new collaborations and opportunities for regional interaction.
Stochastic Analysis and its Applications Mongolian 2015 is a two-week event, consisting of minicourses and specialist topic lectures.
The minicourses form the core of the research school for local and regional participants, and will offer a basic, but precise introduction to key areas of current research. Principally they are aimed at Ph.D. students and young researchers as well as researchers wanting to move into these fields. The most important of these four courses is the first on stochastic calculus and this will receive 8 hours of lecturing whereas the others will receive 6 hours of lecturing.
In addition, there will be invited research seminars and lectures on research topics. The research topics will build on the minicourses giving further insight into current research areas of interest.
The final list of speakers will be determined in due course.
In the following description, each unit of one hour corresponds to 45-50 minutes of lectures.
The basic concept of exchangeable partitions of the natural numbers is introduced and how this plays a fundamental role in building Markov processes that are valued in the space of such partitions. The case of fragmentation and coalescent processes are developed with focus on their applications. In the case of fragmentation processes, applications in the mining industry are mentioned. In the case of coalescent processes, connections with modeling genetic diversification are mentioned.
In this course we discuss some basic results and techniques from the PDE theory, which arise in the study of stochastic differential equations. In this way, we provide some background for the course ”Introduction to stochastic calculus and applications”. We start with some fundamental properties of harmonic functions (i.e. of solutions to the Laplace equation), such as the mean value property, the maximum principle and Harnack’s inequality, which allow for a stochastic reformulation in terms of a stopped Brownian motion. We then present some variants for time-dependent PDEs, with an emphasis on the heat equation as model equation for general diffusion processes. Finally, we draw connections between partial differential equations and optimization / minimization problems, by explaining some basics of the Euler-Lagrange formalism. The theory covered in this course will be illustrated by several reoccuring examples, both during the lectures and tutorials.
Lecture 1. The N eigenvalues of a large symmetric (or hermitian) random matrix of size N are far from being independent random variables: they repel each other. This results in new limit laws of random variables, that can be computed in simple models of random matrices (the Gaussian ensembles), and turn out to be universal and appear as well in other domains of mathematics and physics.
Lecture 2. We will discuss equilibrium measures and large deviation theory for eigenvalue statistics. I will then introduce Schwinger-Dyson equations -- which provide a general tool to study statistical physics models -- for some simple random matrix ensembles. I will describe some results about the large N asymptotic expansion, in particular the "topological expansions".
(Choice will be made later between 3a. or 3b. depending on the time and audience' interest)
Lecture 3a. We will see the machinery of Schwinger-Dyson equations at work, in the problem of obtaining finite size corrections to large deviations functions for the maximum eigenvalue of a random matrix. We will deduce an elementary and heuristic computation concerning the tails of the (universal) limit law of fluctuations of the maximum eigenvalue, which is called Tracy-Widom law.
Lecture 3b. There is a rich combinatorics behind the Gaussian hermitian matrix model. It is described by "pairings": the large N limit isolates planar pairings, and the finite N corrections sort the pairings by their topology. This idea has been exploited in designing faster algorithms to predict the tertiary structure of RNA sequences.
This course will give an introduction to the theory of stochastic calculus and will serve as a foundation for the other mini-courses. The course will introduce Brownian motion as a Markov process and focus largely on the construction of the Brownian integral and its associated Ito calculus. En route examples of where stochastic calculus is important will be mentioned, leaving open the possibility for further discussion with students during the research school. The course will conclude with some attention given to the case of Lévy processes and the generalization of Ito’s calculus for this class of processes.
Positive Self-Similar Markov processes are closely connected to Lévy Processes. The aim of this lectures is to discuss a reformulation of Lamperti’s representation through stochastic differential equations (SDEs) driven by Poisson point processes. Lamperti’s representation is equivalent to the Lamperti SDE for positive initial conditions but in contrast to Lamperti’s representation the Lamperti SDE readily extends to zero initial conditions. On the way existence and uniqueness for jump-type SDEs will be discussed.
This course will provide a rapid introduction into classical Black-Scholes theory and its deficiencies. The course will then move on to discussing a more modern perspective on financial modeling, drawing attention to the large variety in different types of financial contracts as well as the rich family of “off-the-shelf” stochastic processes and statistical methods, which are used to model such pricing scenarios. The ideology of using mathematics to establish “fair pricing” and giving a quantitative perspective to "risk exposure" will be central to the presentation. This course will be aimed equally at analysts from the several large banks in Mongolia as much as academic participants.
Building on the first course on stochastic analysis, this course will introduce some basic principles of optimal stochastic control theory in the setting of models driven by Brownian motion and, more generally, Lévy processes. Two main solution methods will be presented, namely (i) the stochastic maximum principle and (ii) dynamic programming and the HJB equation. Applications that are of pertinence to mathematical finance will also be discussed, for example the problem of optimal portfolio choice and risk minimization in a financial market.

Other Accommodation Alternatives
Mongolia is truly one of the world's last undiscovered travel destinations and the safest country to visit. It is a land where you can experience wide-open spaces, cobalt blue skies, forests, deserts, crystal clear rivers and lakes, and the traditional hospitality of the nomads. Permanent dwellings are few and far between, fences even fewer and the land is owned by the people, like one large National Park.
As a tremendous destination to experience the outdoors, Mongolia also boasts of unique history dating back to the Mongol Empire of Genghis Khan. Simply put, it is a land of adventure, horses, nomads, and blue sky.
