19229411 Seminar on Stochastics
- FU-Students only need to register via Campus Management.
- Non-FU-students are required to register via MyCampus/Whiteboard.
Summer Term 2023
Lecturer: Dr. Immanuel Zachhuber
- Time and place: Tuesday, 2pm--4pm, in SR 115, Arnimallee 3.
If you want to participate, please write an email to email@example.com
Prerequisites: In order to take part it is important to have some knowledge on stochastic analysis (e.g. Stochastics III) and functional analysis although some talks will be more introductory and require less in background knowledge.
Target group: Master students and BMS students.
Contents: In this seminar we will learn the mathematics of Quantum Mechanics following the book  by Strocchi. The aim is to understand the stochastic quantisation of Quantum Mechanics as discussed in Chapter 6 of his book as well as some more general background.
