Sllabus: This class teaches stochastic methods from a quantum optical perspective. The first part deals with classical stochastic (Markov) processes [1]. Topics include Langevin equations, Fokker-Planck equations, stochastic calculus and applications in quantum optics. The second part is on quantum stochastic (Markov) processes with topics quantum Langevin equations, master equation, continuous measurement theory and various quantum optical applications.
