# Seminaire de Probabilites XXXIII

Besides topics traditionally found in the Sminaire de Probabilits (Martingale Theory, Stochastic Processes, questions of general interest in Probability Theory), this volume XXXIII presents nine contributions to the study of filtrations up to isomorphism. It also contains three graduate courses: Dynamics of stochastic algorithms, by M. Benaim; Simulated annealing algorithms and Markov chains with rare transitions, by O. Catoni; and Concentration of measure and logarithmic Sobolev inequalities, by M. Ledoux. These up to date courses present the state of the art in three matters of interest to students in theoretical or applied Probability Theory, and to researchers as well.
# Seminaire de Probabilites XXXIII

# S minaire de Probabilit s XXXVI

The 36th Sminaire de Probabilits contains an advanced course on Logarithmic Sobolev Inequalities by A. Guionnet and B. Zegarlinski, as well as two shorter surveys by L. Pastur and N. O'Connell on the theory of random matrices and their links with stochastic processes. The main themes of the other contributions are Logarithmic Sobolev Inequalities, Stochastic Calculus, Martingale Theory and Filtrations. Besides the traditional readership of the Sminaires, this volume will be useful to researchers in statistical mechanics and mathematical finance.
# S minaire de Probabilit s XLV

The series of advanced courses initiated in Séminaire de Probabilités XXXIII continues with a course by Ivan Nourdin on Gaussian approximations using Malliavin calculus. The Séminaire also occasionally publishes a series of contributions on a unifying subject; in this spirit, selected participants to the September 2011 Conference on Stochastic Filtrations, held in Strasbourg and organized by Michel Émery, have also contributed to the present volume. The rest of the work covers a wide range of topics, such as stochastic calculus and Markov processes, random matrices and free probability, and combinatorial optimization.
# S minaire de Probabilit s XLIII

This is a new volume of the Séminaire de Probabilités which is now in its 43rd year. Following the tradition, this volume contains about 20 original research and survey articles on topics related to stochastic analysis. It contains an advanced course of J. Picard on the representation formulae for fractional Brownian motion. The regular chapters cover a wide range of themes, such as stochastic calculus and stochastic differential equations, stochastic differential geometry, filtrations, analysis on Wiener space, random matrices and free probability, as well as mathematical finance. Some of the contributions were presented at the Journées de Probabilités held in Poitiers in June 2009.
# S minaire de Probabilit s XXXII

All the papers in the volume are original research papers, discussing fundamental properties of stochastic processes. The topics under study (martingales, filtrations, path properties, etc.) represent an important part of the current research performed in 1996-97 by various groups of probabilists in France and abroad.
# S minaire de Probabilit s XXXVIII

Besides a series of six articles on Lévy processes, Volume 38 of the Séminaire de Probabilités contains contributions whose topics range from analysis of semi-groups to free probability, via martingale theory, Wiener space and Brownian motion, Gaussian processes and matrices, diffusions and their applications to PDEs. As do all previous volumes of this series, it provides an overview on the current state of the art in the research on stochastic processes.

# Ecole D ete de Probabilites de Saint Flour

Lecture Notes in Mathematics This series reports on new developments in mathematical research and teaching - quickly, informally and at a high level. The type of material considered for publication includes 1. Research monographs 2. Lectures on a new field or presentations of a new angle in a classical field 3. Summer schools and intensive courses on topics of current research Texts which are out of print but still in demand may also be considered. The timeliness of a manuscript is sometimes more important than its form, which might be preliminary or tentative. Details of the editorial policy can be found on the inside front-cover of a current volume. Manuscripts should be submitted in camera-ready form according to Springer-Verlag's specification: technical instructions will be sent on request. TEX macros may be found at: http://www.springer.de/math/authors/b-tex.html Select the version of TEX you use and then click on "Monographs". A subject index should be included. We recommend contacting the publisher or the series editors at an early stage of your project. Addresses are given on the inside back-cover.
# Stochastic Inequalities and Applications

Concentration inequalities, which express the fact that certain complicated random variables are almost constant, have proven of utmost importance in many areas of probability and statistics. This volume contains refined versions of these inequalities, and their relationship to many applications particularly in stochastic analysis. The broad range and the high quality of the contributions make this book highly attractive for graduates, postgraduates and researchers in the above areas.
# Progress In Analysis And Its Applications Proceedings Of The 7th International Isaac Congress

The International Society for Analysis, its Applications and Computation (ISAAC) has held its international congresses biennially since 1997. This proceedings volume reports on the progress in analysis, applications and computation in recent years as covered and discussed at the 7th ISAAC Congress. This volume includes papers on partial differential equations, function spaces, operator theory, integral transforms and equations, potential theory, complex analysis and generalizations, stochastic analysis, inverse problems, homogenization, continuum mechanics, mathematical biology and medicine. With over 500 participants from almost 60 countries attending the congress, the book comprises a broad selection of contributions in different topics.
# Numerical Probability

This textbook provides a self-contained introduction to numerical methods in probability with a focus on applications to finance. Topics covered include the Monte Carlo simulation (including simulation of random variables, variance reduction, quasi-Monte Carlo simulation, and more recent developments such as the multilevel paradigm), stochastic optimization and approximation, discretization schemes of stochastic differential equations, as well as optimal quantization methods. The author further presents detailed applications to numerical aspects of pricing and hedging of financial derivatives, risk measures (such as value-at-risk and conditional value-at-risk), implicitation of parameters, and calibration. Aimed at graduate students and advanced undergraduate students, this book contains useful examples and over 150 exercises, making it suitable for self-study.
# The Wulff Crystal in Ising and Percolation Models

This volume is a synopsis of recent works aiming at a mathematically rigorous justification of the phase coexistence phenomenon, starting from a microscopic model. It is intended to be self-contained. Those proofs that can be found only in research papers have been included, whereas results for which the proofs can be found in classical textbooks are only quoted.
# S minaire de Probabilit s XLI

Stochastic processes are as usual the main subject of the Séminaire, with contributions on Brownian motion (fractional or other), Lévy processes, martingales and probabilistic finance. Other probabilistic themes are also present: large random matrices, statistical mechanics. The contributions in this volume provide a sampling of recent results on these topics. All contributions with the exception of two are written in English language.
# S minaire de Probabilit s XLIV

As usual, some of the contributions to this 44th Séminaire de Probabilités were presented during the Journées de Probabilités held in Dijon in June 2010. The remainder were spontaneous submissions or were solicited by the editors. The traditional and historical themes of the Séminaire are covered, such as stochastic calculus, local times and excursions, and martingales. Some subjects already touched on in the previous volumes are still here: free probability, rough paths, limit theorems for general processes (here fractional Brownian motion and polymers), and large deviations. Lastly, this volume explores new topics, including variable length Markov chains and peacocks. We hope that the whole volume is a good sample of the main streams of current research on probability and stochastic processes, in particular those active in France.
# S minaire de Probabilit s XLIX

This 49th volume offers a good sample of the main streams of current research on probability and stochastic processes, in particular those active in France. This includes articles on latest developments on diffusion processes, large deviations, martingale theory, quasi-stationary distribution, random matrices, and many more. All the contributions come from spontaneous submissions and their diversity illustrates the good health of this branch of mathematics. The featured contributors are E. Boissard, F. Bouguet, J. Brossard, M. Capitaine, P. Cattiaux, N. Champagnat, K. Abdoulaye Coulibaly-Pasquier, H. Elad Altman, A. Guillin, P. Kratz, A. Lejay, C. Leuridan, P. McGill, L. Miclo, G. Pagès, E. Pardoux, P. Petit, B. Rajeev, L. Serlet, H. Tsukada, D. Villeomannais and B. Wilbertz.
# S minaire de Probabilit s XXXVII

The 37th Séminaire de Probabilités contains A. Lejay's advanced course which is a pedagogical introduction to works by T. Lyons and others on stochastic integrals and SDEs driven by deterministic rough paths. The rest of the volume consists of various articles on topics familiar to regular readers of the Séminaires, including Brownian motion, random environment or scenery, PDEs and SDEs, random matrices and financial random processes.
# Seminaire de Probabilites XXXIV

# Open Quantum Systems I

Understanding dissipative dynamics of open quantum systems remains a challenge in mathematical physics. This problem is relevant in various areas of fundamental and applied physics. Significant progress in the understanding of such systems has been made recently. These books present the mathematical theories involved in the modeling of such phenomena. They describe physically relevant models, develop their mathematical analysis and derive their physical implications.
# Open Quantum Systems II

Presents the developments and applications in the field of quantum open systems. This book discusses topics, such as the non-equilibrium properties of open quantum systems, the Fermi Golden Rule and weak coupling limit, quantum irreversibility and decoherence, qualitative behaviour of quantum Markov semigroups and continual quantum measurements.
