Stochastic Differential Equations with Applications in Finance


LUT inverse problems group organises a two-day meeting (from lunch to lunch) concentrating on stochastic differential equations with applications especially in finance.

Venue & Registration

The workshop will be organised in LUT University's Lappeenranta campus. There is no workshop fee, but please send a registration e-mail to Lassi Roininen ( so that we will have big enough meeting room. Also, if you wish to have a talk, please let us know that as well.

ECTS credits from the workshop

Doctoral and advanced MSc students may get 1-2 ECTS credits. The course assessment is based on obligatory lectures and a written 2-3 page report. The student will earn 1 or 2 credits depending on the work done. The grade will be pass/fail. The report should be sent to Sari Lasanen ( by 10 April 2019.
