Giuseppe Da Prato is Emeritus Professor at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa. His research activity concerns: stochastic analysis, evolution equations both deterministic and stochastic, elliptic and parabolic equations with infinitely many variables, deterministic and stochastic control. On these subjects he has produced more than 350 papers in reviewed journals and eight books. Jerzy Zabczyk is Professor in the Institute of Mathematics at the Polish Academy of Sciences. His research interests include stochastic processes, evolution equations, control theory and mathematical finance. He has published 87 papers in mathematical journals and seven books.
Review of the first edition: 'The exposition is excellent and
readable throughout, and should help bring the theory to a wider
audience.' Daniel L. Ocone, Stochastics and Stochastic Reports
Review of the first edition: '... a welcome contribution to the rather new area of infinite dimensional stochastic evolution equations, which is far from being complete, so it should provide both a useful background and motivation for further research.' Yuri Kifer, The Annals of Probability
Review of the first edition: '... an excellent book which covers a large part of stochastic evolution equations with clear proofs and a very interesting analysis of their properties ... In my opinion this book will become an indispensable tool for everybody working on stochastic evolution equations and related areas.' P. Kotelenez, American Mathematical Society
