Dear all,

I'm wondering which university is a good choice for grad school in the field of stochastic analysis, more specifically, stochastic evolution equations.

Well, I know this is not a strict math question, but i know nowhere to ask.

thank you in advance.

Jan, I'm voting to close this question because it's not what this site's about. However, here's a suggestion: email some people who work in stochastic analysis (authors of your favourite textbooks, people you find on the web, etc), introducing yourself (a couple of sentences on where you're based and what your background is) and asking them if they're taking students or, if not, which other universities they'd recommend. Probably not everyone will reply, but it should get the ball rolling. – Tom Leinster Feb 6 '11 at 8:00

By Stochastic Evolution Equations, do you mean infinite-dimensional equations & SPDE?

Below are a few names to get you started, I would recommend looking at their papers to see if you can find something that interests you, then making a choice on the school. It's more about who you work with and less about the school name.

In no particular order (and non-exhaustive):

  • Jan Van Neerven, TU Delft
  • Mark Veraar, TU Delft
  • Giuseppe Da Prato,
  • Zdzislaw Brzezniak, University of York
  • Jerzy Zabczyk, Polish Academy of Sciences
  • Giuseppe Da Prato, Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa
  • Michael Röckner
  • Franco Flandoli
  • István Gyöngy
  • Nicolai V. Krylov
  • Bohdan Maslowski
  • Szymon Peszat
  • Anna Chojnowska-Michalik
  • Benjiamin Goldys
  • Jan Seidler
  • Davar Khoshnevisan
  • Robert Dalang
  • Carl Mueller
  • Martin Hairer
  • J. C. Mattingly
  • L. Zambotti

Who are the researchers in SEE at those places? – Dale Roberts Feb 6 '11 at 5:43
