RTG 2131 - Mini-Workshop 2018

Mini-Workshop on high-dimensional BSDEs and PDEs

2018 May 24th - 25th 
at University Duisburg-Essen, Germany

Organized by Martin Hutzenthaler (University Duisburg-Essen)


This workshop is part of the qualification program of the Research Training Group 2131, "High-dimensional Phenomena in Probability - Fluctuations and Discontinuity", funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

            UA Ruhr



The Workshop focuses on numerical approximations of high-dimensional partial differential equations and highdimensional backward stochastic differential equations. This will be complemented by a Mini-Course on machine learning approximation methods including state-of-the-art stochastic gradient optimization methods presented by Arnulf Jentzen.
