This is an introduction to Brownian motion and stochastic calculus
for students who know measure theory and have some exposure to
measure theoretic probability. The normal prerequisites are either
Math 312 or Stat 381/383, however any student who feels qualified
to handle the material may enroll.

There will be regular problems sets throughout the term as well as
one large problem set to be done during the week of May 24. (There
will be no class that week.) This large problem set, which will take
the place of a final exam for the course, must be individual work. You
may discuss other problem sets with students.

There are no texts for the course. Recommended books include

Moerters and Peres, Brownian motion. (Unfortunately, this book has not
been published yet. It will be published by Cambridge University Press. There
are preliminary electronic versions floating around.)

See
Steve Lalley web page for other references as well. I particular
recommend the lecture note "Ito Integral".
