Markov Processes, Feller Semigroups and Evolution Equations cover

The book provides a systemic treatment of time-dependent strong Markov processes with values in a Polish space. It describes its generators and the link with stochastic differential equations in infinite dimensions. In a unifying way, where the square gradient operator is employed, new results for backward stochastic differential equations and long-time behavior are discussed in depth. The book also establishes a link between propagators or evolution families with the Feller property and time-inhomogeneous Markov processes. This mathematical material finds its applications in several branches of the scientific world, among which are mathematical physics, hedging models in financial mathematics, and population models.

“This book is a valuable contribution to the theory of (time-inhomogeneous) Markov processes. It presents a wide range of concepts and ideas that are connected to parabolic diffusion equations and their probabilistic counterparts. The book certainly provides a solid starting basis for further, more conceptual research on time-inhomogeneous Markov processes due to many interesting remarks and instructive hints provided by the author.”
