# An Introduction to the Analysis of Paths on a Riemannian by Daniel W. Stroock

By Daniel W. Stroock

This e-book goals to bridge the space among likelihood and differential geometry. It supplies structures of Brownian movement on a Riemannian manifold: an extrinsic one the place the manifold is discovered as an embedded submanifold of Euclidean area and an intrinsic one in response to the "rolling" map. it really is then proven how geometric amounts (such as curvature) are mirrored by way of the habit of Brownian paths and the way that habit can be utilized to extract information regarding geometric amounts. Readers must have a robust history in research with easy wisdom in stochastic calculus and differential geometry. Professor Stroock is a highly-respected professional in chance and research. The readability and elegance of his exposition extra improve the standard of this quantity. Readers will locate an inviting advent to the examine of paths and Brownian movement on Riemannian manifolds.
