Oxford University Press

The connection between stochastic differential equations and partial differential equations is discussed in this chapter. The Dirichlet problem is studied and several examples are presented. Next, the heat equation, and the Feynman-Kac formula are discussed. The Kolmogorov forward and backward equations are derived after proving the smoothness of solutions in the mean square sense. Applications to pricing of derivatives in finance theory are given.

Keywords:   Dirichlet problem, Feynman-Kac formula, Kolmogorov forward and backward equations, Black-Scholes equation
