Summer School of Mathematics for Economic and Social Sciences

An introduction to random dynamical systems and their perturbations

16 September 2019 - 20 September 2019


The “Summer School of Mathematics for Economic and Social Sciences” aims to improve the knowledge of mathematical methods among graduate students in economics and social sciences, with a focus on those techniques which albeit widespread in use are not properly covered in typical graduate programs. The School is an interdisciplinary venue intended to foster the interaction of people coming from the too often separated communities of mathematical and social scientists.
It is funded and organized by the Mathematics Research Center “Ennio De Giorgi” and partially supported by the International Doctoral Program in Economics of the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna.

Research Directions

The course aims to show an approach to the study of the statistical properties of deterministic and random dynamical systems through the transfer operator method. We will see that using this approach and some basic functional analysis we can get deep results on interesting classes of systems.

Stefano Galatolo, Università di Pisa
