Malliavin calculus

May 23, 2020 — May 25, 2020

Figure 1: This is actually the Northern Lights in 1883, but let us pretend it is something to do with Malliavin calculus

You can calculate a derivative of densities for stochastic processes in some generalised sense which I do not at present understand, and do the normal calculus thing you do with a derivative. Stochastic differential equations arise, presumably ones in some sense involving this generalised derivative, can then solve some kind of problems for you. Or something.

Clearly this is a placeholder for a topic I do not have time for right now. 🏗
