Master's Thesis Projects in Stochastic Processes and Stochastic Calculus: I offer master's thesis projects that connect to the subject matter of my courses MVE170/MSG800 Basic Stochastic Processes and TMS165/MSA350 Stochastic Calculus. Often (but not always) these projets involve data sets from mathematical finance -- they can vary from rather applied invetigations to purely theoretical work.
