Stochastic processes with a multidimensional continuous parameter space, which are called random fields, are used to model random spatial (and temporal) phenomena. Topics of the course are:
  • classical examples of random fields: Brownian sheet and Lévy's Brownian motion,
  • Hilbert spaces with reproducing kernel,
  • isotropy and stationarity of random fields,
  • regularity and approximation of random fields, series representations,
  • sparse grids and Smolyak's algorithm.


  • K. Ritter: Average Case Analysis of Numerical Problems.


Further literature will be announced in the lecture; Exercise material is provided.
