The aim of this course is to give a concise introduction to a class of parabolic stochastic partial differential equations with a particular focus on financial modelling. In the first part of the semester, we will deal with Gaussian processes, including fractional Brownian motions, Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes and white noises, and consider the Kolmogorov-Chentsov continuity theorem in a multidimensional setting. In the second part, we will derive unique solutions to such stochastic equations, analyse their path and probabilistic properties and consider relevant applications in mathematical finance.
