Rough path ideas have become a gamechanger for our understanding of stochastic differential equations. A balance is kept between concrete applications, including numerical schemes, and further development of the required theory. On the theoretical side, for instance, we are seeing many applications in the field of stochastic partial differential equations. Turning to applied topics, market micro structure and recently the analysis of lithiumion batteries require models in the form of realistic stochastic evolutionary equations.
Highlights
Large classes of stochastic differential equations have been analyzed with rough path methods and there is a fruitful interplay with classic techniques of stochastic analysis, notably a new theory of rough stochastic differential equations, with surprising application to the analysis of local rough volatility models.Publications

Abstract
In this work, we derive a new model framework for a porous intercalation electrode with a phase separating active material upon lithium intercalation. We start from a microscopic model consisting of transport equations for lithium ions in an electrolyte phase and intercalated lithium in a solid active phase. Both are coupled through a Neumannboundary condition modeling the lithium intercalation reaction. The active material phase is considered to be phase separating upon lithium intercalation. We assume that the porous material is a given periodic microstructure and perform analytical homogenization. Effectively, the microscopic model consists of a diffusion and a CahnHilliard equation, whereas the limit model consists of a diffusion and an AllenCahn equation. Thus we observe a CahnHilliard to AllenCahn transition during the upscaling process. In the sense of gradient flows, the transition goes in hand with a change in the underlying metric structure of the PDE system.

Abstract
We consider a random diffusion dynamics for an infinite system of hard spheres of two different sizes evolving in ℝ^{d}, its reversible probability measure, and its projection on the subset of the large spheres. The main feature is the occurrence of an attractive shortrange dynamical interaction  known in the physics literature as a depletion interaction  between the large spheres, which is induced by the hidden presence of the small ones. By considering the asymptotic limit for such a system when the density of the particles is high, we also obtain a constructive dynamical approach to the famous discrete geometry problem of maximisation of the contact number of n identical spheres in ℝ^{d}. As support material, we propose numerical simulations in the form of movies.

Abstract
When approximating the expectation of a functional of a stochastic process, the efficiency and performance of deterministic quadrature methods, such as sparse grid quadrature and quasiMonte Carlo (QMC) methods, may critically depend on the regularity of the integrand. To overcome this issue and reveal the available regularity, we consider cases in which analytic smoothing cannot be performed, and introduce a novel numerical smoothing approach by combining a root finding algorithm with onedimensional integration with respect to a single wellselected variable. We prove that under appropriate conditions, the resulting function of the remaining variables is a highly smooth function, potentially affording the improved efficiency of adaptive sparse grid quadrature (ASGQ) and QMC methods, particularly when combined with hierarchical transformations (i.e., Brownian bridge and Richardson extrapolation on the weak error). This approach facilitates the effective treatment of high dimensionality. Our study is motivated by option pricing problems, and our focus is on dynamics where the discretization of the asset price is necessary. Based on our analysis and numerical experiments, we show the advantages of combining numerical smoothing with the ASGQ and QMC methods over ASGQ and QMC methods without smoothing and the Monte Carlo approach.

Abstract
In this paper we compare the notion of stochastic twoscale convergence in the mean (by Bourgeat, Mikelić and Wright), the notion of stochastic unfolding (recently introduced by the authors), and the quenched notion of stochastic twoscale convergence (by Zhikov and Pyatnitskii). In particular, we introduce stochastic twoscale Young measures as a tool to compare mean and quenched limits. Moreover, we discuss two examples, which can be naturally analyzed via stochastic unfolding, but which cannot be treated via quenched stochastic twoscale convergence.

Abstract
We introduce the class of smooth rough paths and study their main properties. Working in a smooth setting allows us to discard sewing arguments and focus on algebraic and geometric aspects. Specifically, a Maurer Cartan perspective is the key to a purely algebraic form of Lyons extension theorem, the renormalization of rough paths following up on [Bruned et al.: A rough path perspective on renormalization, J. Funct. Anal. 277(11), 2019], as well as a related notion of sum of rough paths. We first develop our ideas in a geometric rough path setting, as this best resonates with recent works on signature varieties, as well as with the renormalization of geometric rough paths. We then explore extensions to the quasigeometric and the more general Hopf algebraic setting.

Abstract
We consider the stochastic differential equation on ℝ ^{d} given by d X _{t} = b(t,X_{t} ) d t + d B_{t}, where B is a Brownian motion and b is considered to be a distribution of regularity >  1/2. We show that the martingale solution of the SDE has a transition kernel Γ_{t} and prove upper and lower heat kernel bounds for Γ_{t} with explicit dependence on t and the norm of b.

Abstract
We consider rough stochastic volatility models where the variance process satisfies a stochastic Volterra equation with the fractional kernel, as in the rough Bergomi and the rough Heston model. In particular, the variance process is therefore not a Markov process or semimartingale, and has quite low Hölderregularity. In practice, simulating such rough processes thus often results in high computational cost. To remedy this, we study approximations of stochastic Volterra equations using an Ndimensional diffusion process defined as solution to a system of ordinary stochastic differential equation. If the coefficients of the stochastic Volterra equation are Lipschitz continuous, we show that these approximations converge strongly with superpolynomial rate in N. Finally, we apply this approximation to compute the implied volatility smile of a European call option under the rough Bergomi and the rough Heston model.

Abstract
In this paper, we study the option pricing problems for rough volatility models. As the framework is nonMarkovian, the value function for a European option is not deterministic; rather, it is random and satisfies a backward stochastic partial differential equation (BSPDE). The existence and uniqueness of weak solutions is proved for general nonlinear BSPDEs with unbounded random leading coefficients whose connections with certain forwardbackward stochastic differential equations are derived as well. These BSPDEs are then used to approximate American option prices. A deep learningbased method is also investigated for the numerical approximations to such BSPDEs and associated nonMarkovian pricing problems. Finally, the examples of rough Bergomi type are numerically computed for both European and American options.

Abstract
This work is concerned with forest and cumulant type expansions of general random variables on a filtered probability spaces. We establish a "broken exponential martingale" expansion that generalizes and unifies the exponentiation result of Alòs, Gatheral, and Radoičić and the cumulant recursion formula of Lacoin, Rhodes, and Vargas. Specifically, we exhibit the two previous results as lower dimensional projections of the same generalized forest expansion, subsequently related by forest reordering. Our approach also leads to sharp integrability conditions for validity of the cumulant formula, as required by many of our examples, including iterated stochastic integrals, Lévy area, Bessel processes, KPZ with smooth noise, WienerItô chaos and "rough" stochastic (forward) variance models.

Abstract
Rough path analysis is developed in the full Besov scale. This extends, and essentially concludes, an investigation started by Prömel and Trabs (2016) [49], further studied in a series of papers by Liu, Prömel and Teichmann. A new Besov sewing lemma, a realanalysis result of interest in its own right, plays a key role, and the flexibility in the choice of Besov parameters allows for the treatment of equations not available in the Hölder or variation settings. Important classes of stochastic processes fit in the present framework.

Abstract
We consider the parabolic Anderson model (PAM) in ℝ ² with a Gaussian (space) whitenoise potential. We prove that the almostsure largetime asymptotic behaviour of the total mass at time t is given asymptotically by Χ t log t, with the deterministic constant Χ identified in terms of a variational formula. In earlier work of one of the authors this constant was used to describe the asymptotic behaviour principal Dirichlet of the eigenvalue the Anderson operator on the t by t box around zero asymptotically by Χ log t.

Abstract
We propose a new class of rough stochastic volatility models obtained by modulating the powerlaw kernel defining the fractional Brownian motion (fBm) by a logarithmic term, such that the kernel retains square integrability even in the limit case of vanishing Hurst index H. The soobtained logmodulated fractional Brownian motion (logfBm) is a continuous Gaussian process even for H = 0. As a consequence, the resulting superrough stochastic volatility models can be analysed over the whole range of Hurst indices between 0 and 1/2, including H = 0, without the need of further normalization. We obtain the usual power law explosion of the skew as maturity T goes to 0, modulated by a logarithmic term, so no flattening of the skew occurs as H goes to 0.

Abstract
We present a new methodology to analyze large classes of (classical and rough) stochastic volatility models, with special regard to shorttime and small noise formulae for option prices. Our main tool is the theory of regularity structures, which we use in the form of Bayer et al. (Math. Finance30 (2020) 782832) In essence, we implement a Laplace method on the space of models (in the sense of Hairer), which generalizes classical works of Azencott and Ben Arous on path space and then Aida, InahamaKawabi on rough path space. When applied to rough volatility models, for example, in the setting of Bayer, Friz and Gatheral (Quant. Finance16 (2016) 887904) and FordeZhang (SIAM J. Financial Math.8 (2017) 114145), one obtains precise asymptotics for European options which refine known large deviation asymptotics.

Abstract
In Friz et al. [Precise asymptotics for robust stochastic volatility models. Ann. Appl. Probab, 2021, 31(2), 896?940], we introduce a new methodology to analyze large classes of (classical and rough) stochastic volatility models, with special regard to shorttime and smallnoise formulae for option prices, using the framework [Bayer et al., A regularity structure for rough volatility. Math. Finance, 2020, 30(3), 782?832]. We investigate here the fine structure of this expansion in large deviations and moderate deviations regimes, together with consequences for implied volatility. We discuss computational aspects relevant for the practical application of these formulas. We specialize such expansions to prototypical rough volatility examples and discuss numerical evidence.

Abstract
We establish verifiable general sufficient conditions for exponential or subexponential ergodicity of Markov processes that may lack the strong Feller property. We apply the obtained results to show exponential ergodicity of a variety of nonlinear stochastic partial differential equations with additive forcing, including 2D stochastic NavierStokes equations. Our main tool is a new version of the generalized coupling method.

Abstract
We develop a general framework for studying ergodicity of orderpreserving Markov semigroups.

This refines and complements corresponding results of Hairer and Mattingly (Electron J Probab 16:658?738, 2011).

Abstract
We take a pathwise approach to classical McKeanVlasov stochastic differential equations with additive noise, as e.g. exposed in Sznitmann [34]. Our study was prompted by some concrete problems in battery modelling [19], and also by recent progress on roughpathwise McKeanVlasov theory, notably CassLyons [9], and then Bailleul, Catellier and Delarue [4]. Such a “pathwise McKeanVlasov theory” can be traced back to Tanaka [36]. This paper can be seen as an attempt to advertize the ideas, power and simplicity of the pathwise appproach, not so easily extracted from [4, 9, 36]. As novel applications we discuss mean field convergence without a priori independence and exchangeability assumption; common noise and reflecting boundaries. Last not least, we generalize DawsonGärtner large deviations to a nonBrownian noise setting.

Abstract
We study linear rough partial differential equations in the setting of [Friz and Hairer, Springer, 2014, Chapter 12]. More precisely, we consider a linear parabolic partial differential equation driven by a deterministic rough path W of Hölder regularity α with ⅓ < α ≤ ½ . Based on a stochastic representation of the solution of the rough partial differential equation, we propose a regression Monte Carlo algorithm for spatiotemporal approximation of the solution. We provide a full convergence analysis of the proposed approximation method which essentially relies on the new bounds for the higher order derivatives of the solution in space. Finally, a comprehensive simulation study showing the applicability of the proposed algorithm is presented.

Abstract
The rough Bergomi (rBergomi) model, introduced recently in Bayer et al. [Pricing under rough volatility. Quant. Finance, 2016, 16(6), 887?904], is a promising rough volatility model in quantitative finance. It is a parsimonious model depending on only three parameters, and yet remarkably fits empirical implied volatility surfaces. In the absence of analytical European option pricing methods for the model, and due to the nonMarkovian nature of the fractional driver, the prevalent option is to use the Monte Carlo (MC) simulation for pricing. Despite recent advances in the MC method in this context, pricing under the rBergomi model is still a timeconsuming task. To overcome this issue, we have designed a novel, hierarchical approach, based on: (i) adaptive sparse grids quadrature (ASGQ), and (ii) quasiMonte Carlo (QMC). Both techniques are coupled with a Brownian bridge construction and a Richardson extrapolation on the weak error. By uncovering the available regularity, our hierarchical methods demonstrate substantial computational gains with respect to the standard MC method. They reach a sufficiently small relative error tolerance in the price estimates across different parameter constellations, even for very small values of the Hurst parameter. Our work opens a new research direction in this field, i.e. to investigate the performance of methods other than Monte Carlo for pricing and calibrating under the rBergomi model.

Abstract
A large class of linear memory differential equations in one dimension, where the evolution depends on the whole history, can be equivalently described as a projection of a Markov process living in a higher dimensional space. Starting with such a memory equation, we give an explicit construction of the corresponding Markov process. From a physical point of view the Markov process can be understood as the change of the type of some quasiparticles along oneway loops. Typically, the arising Markov process does not have the detailed balance property. The method leads to a more realisitc modeling of memory equations. Moreover, it carries over the large number of investigation tools for Markov processes to memory equations, like the calculation of the equilibrium state, the asymptotic behavior and so on. The method can be used for an approximative solution of some degenerate memory equations like delay differential equations.

Abstract
The signature of a parametric curve is a sequence of tensors whose entries are iterated integrals. This construction is central to the theory of rough paths in stochastic analysis. It is examined here through the lens of algebraic geometry. We introduce varieties of signature tensors for both deterministic paths and random paths. For the former, we focus on piecewise linear paths, on polynomial paths, and on varieties derived from free nilpotent Lie groups. For the latter, we focus on Brownian motion and its mixtures.

Abstract
In the framework of nonequilibrium thermodynamics we derive a new model for porous electrodes. The model is applied to LiFePO4 (LFP) electrodes consisting of many LFP particles of nanometer size. The phase transition from a lithiumpoor to a lithiumrich phase within LFP electrodes is controlled by surface fluctuations leading to a system of stochastic differential equations. The model is capable to derive an explicit relation between battery voltage and current that is controlled by thermodynamic state variables. This voltagecurrent relation reveals that in thin LFP electrodes lithium intercalation from the particle surfaces into the LFP particles is the principal rate limiting process. There are only two constant kinetic parameters in the model describing the intercalation rate and the fluctuation strength, respectively. The model correctly predicts several features of LFP electrodes, viz. the phase transition, the observed voltage plateaus, hysteresis and the rate limiting capacity. Moreover we study the impact of both the particle size distribution and the active surface area on the voltagecharge characteristics of the electrode. Finally we carefully discuss the phase transition for varying charging/discharging rates.

Abstract
The AllenCahn equation is a prototype model for phase separation processes, a fundamental example of a nonlinear spatial dynamic and an important approximation of a geometric evolution equation by a reactiondiffusion equation. Stochastic perturbations, especially in the case of additive noise, to the AllenCahn equation have attracted considerable attention. We consider here an alternative random perturbation determined by a Brownian flow of spatial diffeomorphism that was introduced by Röger and Weber [Stoch. Partial Differ. Equ. Anal. Comput. 1 (2013)]. We first provide a large deviation principle for stochastic flows in spaces of functions that are Höldercontinuous in time, which extends results by Budhiraja, Dupuis and Maroulas [Ann. Probab. 36 (2008)]. From this result and a continuity argument we deduce a large deviation principle for the AllenCahn equation perturbed by a Brownian flow in the limit of small noise. Finally, we present two asymptotic reductions of the large deviation functional.

Abstract
In this paper, we investigate a largescale stochastic system with bilinear drift and linear diffusion term. Such high dimensional systems appear for example when discretizing a stochastic partial differential equations in space. We study a particular model order reduction technique called balanced truncation (BT) to reduce the order of spatiallydiscretized systems and hence reduce computational complexity. We introduce suitable Gramians to the system and prove energy estimates that can be used to identify states which contribute only very little to the system dynamics. When BT is applied the reduced system is obtained by removing these states from the original system. The main contribution of this paper is an L2error bound for BT for stochastic bilinear systems. This result is new even for deterministic bilinear equations. In order to achieve it, we develop a new technique which is not available in the literature so far.

Abstract
When solving linear stochastic partial differential equations numerically, usually a high order spatial discretisation is needed. Model order reduction (MOR) techniques are often used to reduce the order of spatiallydiscretised systems and hence reduce computational complexity. A particular MOR technique to obtain a reduced order model (ROM) is singular perturbation approximation (SPA), a method which has been extensively studied for deterministic systems. As socalled type I SPA it has already been extended to stochastic equations. We provide an alternative generalisation of the deterministic setting to linear systems with Lévy noise which is called type II SPA. It turns out that the ROM from applying type II SPA has better properties than the one of using type I SPA. In this paper, we provide new energy interpretations for stochastic reachability Gramians, show the preservation of mean square stability in the ROM by type II SPA and prove two different error bounds for type II SPA when applied to Lévy driven systems

Abstract
We propose a novel projectionbased particle method for solving McKeanVlasov stochastic differential equations. Our approach is based on a projectiontype estimation of the marginal density of the solution in each time step. The projectionbased particle method leads in many situations to a significant reduction of numerical complexity compared to the widely used kernel density estimation algorithms. We derive strong convergence rates and rates of density estimation. The convergence analysis, particularly in the case of linearly growing coefficients, turns out to be rather challenging and requires some new type of averaging technique. This case is exemplified by explicit solutions to a class of McKeanVlasov equations with affine drift. The performance of the proposed algorithm is illustrated by several numerical examples. 
K. Chouk, P. Friz, Support theorem for a singular SPDE: The case of gPAM, Annales de l'Institut Henri Poincare. Probabilites et Statistiques, 54 (2018), pp. 202219.
Abstract
We consider the generalized parabolic Anderson equation (gPAM) in 2 dimensions with periodic boundary. This is an example of a singular semilinear stochastic partial differential equation in the subcritical regime, with (renormalized) solutions only recently understood via Hairer?s regularity structures and, in some cases equivalently, paracontrollled distributions by Gubinelli, Imkeller and Perkowski. In the present paper we utilise the paracontrolled machinery and obtain a (Stroock?Varadhan) type support description for the law of gPAM. In the spirit of rough paths, the crucial step is to identify the support of the enhanced noise in a sufficiently fine topology. The renormalization is seen to affect the support description.

Abstract
We develop a forwardreverse expectationmaximization (FREM) algorithm for estimating parameters of a discretetime Markov chain evolving through a certain measurable statespace. For the construction of the FREM method, we develop forwardreverse representations for Markov chains conditioned on a certain terminal state. We prove almost sure convergence of our algorithm for a Markov chain model with curved exponential family structure. On the numerical side, we carry out a complexity analysis of the forwardreverse algorithm by deriving its expected cost. Two application examples are discussed.

Abstract
To solve a stochastic linear evolution equation numerically, finite dimensional approximations are commonly used. For a good approximation, one might end up with a sequence of ordinary stochastic linear equations of high order. To reduce the high dimension for practical computations, we consider the singular perturbation approximation as a model order reduction technique in this paper. This approach is wellknown from deterministic control theory and here we generalize it for controlled linear systems with Lévy noise. Additionally, we discuss properties of the reduced order model, provide an error bound, and give some examples to demonstrate the quality of this model order reduction technique.

Abstract
Malliavin calculus is implemented in the context of Hairer (2014) [16]. This involves some constructions of independent interest, notably an extension of the structure which accommodates a robust, and purely deterministic, translation operator, in directions, between ?models?. In the concrete context of the generalized parabolic Anderson model in 2D ? one of the singular SPDEs discussed in the aforementioned article ? we establish existence of a density at positive times.

Abstract
We establish a Sanov type large deviation principle for an ensemble of interacting Brownian rough paths. As application a large deviations for the (klayer, enhanced) empirical measure of weakly interacting diffusions is obtained. This in turn implies a propagation of chaos result in a space of rough paths and allows for a robust analysis of the particle system and its McKean?Vlasov type limit, as shown in two corollaries.

Abstract
In this study the flow field of a nonlocal, diffusive upper convected Maxwell (UCM) fluid with a polymer in a solvent undergoing shearing motion is investigated for pressure driven planar channel flow and the free boundary problem of a liquid layer on a solid substrate. For large ratios of the zero shear polymer viscosity to the solvent viscosity, it is shown that channel flows exhibit boundary layers at the channel walls. In addition, for increasing stress diffusion the flow field away from the boundary layers undergoes a transition from a parabolic to a plug flow. Using experimental data for the wormlike micelle solutions CTAB/NaSal and CPyCl/NaSal, it is shown that the analytic solution of the governing equations predicts these signatures of the velocity profiles. Corresponding flow structures and transitions are found for the free boundary problem of a thin layer sheared along a solid substrate. Matched asymptotic expansions are used to first derive sharpinterface models describing the bulk flow with expressions for an em apparent slip for the boundary conditions, obtained by matching to the flow in the boundary layers. For a thin film geometry several asymptotic regimes are identified in terms of the order of magnitude of the stress diffusion, and corresponding new thin film models with a slip boundary condition are derived.

Abstract
We revisit regularity of SLE trace, for all , and establish Besov regularity under the usual halfspace capacity parametrization. With an embedding theorem of Garsia?Rodemich?Rumsey type, we obtain finite moments (and hence almost surely) optimal variation regularity with index , improving on previous works of Werness, and also (optimal) Hölder regularity à la Johansson Viklund and Lawler.

Abstract
In this study we present a phasefield model that describes the process of intercalation of Li ions into a layer of an amorphous solid such as aSi. The governing equations couple a viscous CahnHilliardReaction model with elasticity in the framework of the CahnLarché system. We discuss the parameter settings and flux conditions at the free boundary that lead to the formation of phase boundaries having a sharp gradient in ion concentration between the initial state of the solid layer and the intercalated region. We carry out a matched asymptotic analysis to derive the corresponding sharpinterface model that also takes into account the dynamics of triple points where the sharp interface in the bulk of the layer intersects the free boundary. We numerically compare the interface motion predicted by the sharpinterface model with the longtime dynamics of the phasefield model.

Abstract
We consider the estimation problem of an unknown drift parameter within classes of nondegenerate diffusion processes. The Maximum Likelihood Estimator (MLE) is analyzed with regard to its pathwise stability properties and robustness towards misspecification in volatility and even the very nature of noise. We construct a version of the estimator based on rough integrals (in the sense of T. Lyons) and present strong evidence that this construction resolves a number of stability issues inherent to the standard MLEs.

Abstract
In this paper we uniformly approximate the trajectories of the CoxIngersollRoss (CIR) process. At a sequence of random times the approximate trajectories will be even exact. In between, the approximation will be uniformly close to the exact trajectory. From a conceptual point of view the proposed method gives a better quality of approximation in a pathwise sense than standard, or even exact simulation of the CIR dynamics at some deterministic time grid. 
CH. Bayer, P. Friz, J. Gatheral, Pricing under rough volatility, Quantitative Finance, 16 (2016), pp. 887904.
Abstract
From an analysis of the time series of volatility using recent high frequency data, Gatheral, Jaisson and Rosenbaum [SSRN 2509457, 2014] previously showed that logvolatility behaves essentially as a fractional Brownian motion with Hurst exponent H of order 0.1, at any reasonable time scale. The resulting Rough Fractional Stochastic Volatility (RFSV) model is remarkably consistent with financial time series data. We now show how the RFSV model can be used to price claims on both the underlying and integrated volatility. We analyze in detail a simple case of this model, the rBergomi model. In particular, we find that the rBergomi model fits the SPX volatility markedly better than conventional Markovian stochastic volatility models, and with fewer parameters. Finally, we show that actual SPX variance swap curves seem to be consistent with model forecasts, with particular dramatic examples from the weekend of the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the Flash Crash.

Abstract
Discrete approximations to solutions of stochastic differential equations are wellknown to converge with strong rate 1/2. Such rates have played a keyrole in Giles' multilevel Monte Carlo method [Giles, Oper. Res. 2008] which gives a substantial reduction of the computational effort necessary for the evaluation of diffusion functionals. In the present article similar results are established for large classes of rough differential equations driven by Gaussian processes (including fractional Brownian motion with H>1/4 as special case).

Abstract
We discuss stochastic calculus for large classes of Gaussian processes, based on rough path analysis. Our key condition is a covariance measure structure combined with a classical criterion due to Jain and Monrad [Ann. Probab. 11 (1983) 46?57]. This condition is verified in many examples, even in absence of explicit expressions for the covariance or Volterra kernels. Of special interest are random Fourier series, with covariance given as Fourier series itself, and we formulate conditions directly in terms of the Fourier coefficients. We also establish convergence and rates of convergence in rough path metrics of approximations to such random Fourier series. An application to SPDE is given. Our criterion also leads to an embedding result for Cameron?Martin paths and complementary Young regularity (CYR) of the Cameron?Martin space and Gaussian sample paths. CYR is known to imply Malliavin regularity and also Itôlike probabilistic estimates for stochastic integrals (resp., stochastic differential equations) despite their (rough) pathwise construction. At last, we give an application in the context of nonMarkovian Hörmander theory.

Abstract
We consider invariant matrix processes diffusing in nonconfining cubic potentials of the form Va(x)=x3/3?ax,a??. We construct the trajectories of such processes for all time by restarting them whenever an explosion occurs, from a new (well chosen) initial condition, insuring continuity of the eigenvectors and of the non exploding eigenvalues. We characterize the dynamics of the spectrum in the limit of large dimension and analyze the stationary state of this evolution explicitly. We exhibit a sharp phase transition for the limiting spectral density ?a at a critical value a=a?. If a?a?, then the potential Va presents a well near x=a?? deep enough to confine all the particles inside, and the spectral density ?a is supported on a compact interval. If a

Abstract
We introduce a multiple curve LIBOR framework that combines tractable dynamics and semianalytic pricing formulas with positive interest rates and basis spreads. The dynamics of OIS and LIBOR rates are specified following the methodology of the affine LIBOR models and are driven by the wide and flexible class of affine processes. The affine property is preserved under forward measures, which allows to derive Fourier pricing formulas for caps, swaptions and basis swaptions. A model specification with dependent LIBOR rates is developed, that allows for an efficient and accurate calibration to a system of caplet prices.

Abstract
This paper presents a novel approach to reduce the complexity of simulation based policy iteration methods for pricing American options. Typically, Monte Carlo construction of an improved policy gives rise to a nested simulation algorithm for the price of the American product. In this respect our new approach uses the multilevel idea in the context of the inner simulations required, where each level corresponds to a specific number of inner simulations. A thorough analysis of the crucial convergence rates in the respective multilevel policy improvement algorithm is presented. A detailed complexity analysis shows that a significant reduction in computational effort can be achieved in comparison to standard Monte Carlo based policy iteration.

Abstract
The DossSussmann (DS) approach is used for simulating the CoxIngersollRoss (CIR) process. The DS formalism allows for expressing trajectories of the CIR process by solutions of some ordinary differential equation (ODE) that depend on realizations of the Wiener process involved. Via simulating the firstpassage times of the increments of the Wiener process to the boundary of an interval and solving an ODE, we approximately construct the trajectories of the CIR process. From a conceptual point of view the proposed method may be considered as an exact simulation approach. 
R. Allez, L. Dumaz, TracyWidom at high temperature, Journal of Statistical Physics, 156 (2014), pp. 11461183.
Abstract
We investigate the marginal distribution of the bottom eigenvalues of the stochastic Airy operator when the inverse temperature ? tends to 0. We prove that the minimal eigenvalue, whose fluctuations are governed by the Tracy?Widom ? law, converges weakly, when properly centered and scaled, to the Gumbel distribution. More generally we obtain the convergence in law of the marginal distribution of any eigenvalue with given index k. Those convergences are obtained after a careful analysis of the explosion times process of the Riccati diffusion associated to the stochastic Airy operator. We show that the empirical measure of the explosion times converges weakly to a Poisson point process using estimates proved in Dumaz and Virág (Ann Inst H Poincaré Probab Statist 49(4):915?933, 2013). We further compute the empirical eigenvalue density of the stochastic Airy ensemble on the macroscopic scale when ??0. As an application, we investigate the maximal eigenvalues statistics of ?Nensembles when the repulsion parameter ?N?0 when N?+?. We study the double scaling limit N?+?,?N?0 and argue with heuristic and numerical arguments that the statistics of the marginal distributions can be deduced following the ideas of Edelman and Sutton (J Stat Phys 127(6):1121?1165, 2007) and Ramírez et al. (J Am Math Soc 24:919?944, 2011) from our later study of the stochastic Airy operator.

Abstract
We establish an optimal, linear rate of convergence for the stochastic homogenization of discrete linear elliptic equations. We consider the model problem of independent and identically distributed coefficients on a discretized unit torus. We show that the difference between the solution to the random problem on the discretized torus and the first two terms of the twoscale asymptotic expansion has the same scaling as in the periodic case. In particular the L^{2}norm in probability of the H^{1}norm in space of this error scales like ε, where ε is the discretization parameter of the unit torus. The proof makes extensive use of previous results by the authors, and of recent annealed estimates on the Greens function by Marahrens and the third author.

Abstract
We consider the setting of estimating the mean of a random variable by a sequential stopping rule Monte Carlo (MC) method. The performance of a typical second moment based sequential stopping rule MC method is shown to be unreliable in such settings both by numerical examples and through analysis. By analysis and approximations, we construct a higher moment based stopping rule which is shown in numerical examples to perform more reliably and only slightly less efficiently than the second moment based stopping rule. 
CH. Bayer, J.G.M. Schoenmakers, Simulation of forwardreverse stochastic representations for conditional diffusions, The Annals of Applied Probability, 24 (2014), pp. 19942032.
Abstract
In this paper we derive stochastic representations for the finite dimensional distributions of a multidimensional diffusion on a fixed time interval, conditioned on the terminal state. The conditioning can be with respect to a fixed point or more generally with respect to some subset. The representations rely on a reverse process connected with the given (forward) diffusion as introduced in Milstein et al. [Bernoulli, 10(2):281312, 2004] in the context of a forwardreverse transition density estimator. The corresponding Monte Carlo estimators have essentially rootN accuracy, hence they do not suffer from the curse of dimensionality. We provide a detailed convergence analysis and give a numerical example involving the realized variance in a stochastic volatility asset model conditioned on a fixed terminal value of the asset.

Abstract
There are several (mathematical) reasons why Dupire?s formula fails in the nondiffusion setting. And yet, in practice, adhoc preconditioning of the option data works reasonably well. In this note, we attempt to explain why. In particular, we propose a regularization procedure of the option data so that Dupire?s local vol diffusion process recreates the correct option prices, even in manifest presence of jumps.

M. Ladkau, J.G.M. Schoenmakers, J. Zhang, Libor model with expirywise stochastic volatility and displacement, International Journal of Portfolio Analysis and Management, 1 (2013), pp. 224249.
Abstract
We develop a multifactor stochastic volatility Libor model with displacement, where each individual forward Libor is driven by its own squareroot stochastic volatility process. The main advantage of this approach is that, maturitywise, each squareroot process can be calibrated to the corresponding cap(let)volastrike panel at the market. However, since even after freezing the Libors in the drift of this model, the Libor dynamics are not affine, new affine approximations have to be developed in order to obtain Fourier based (approximate) pricing procedures for caps and swaptions. As a result, we end up with a Libor modeling package that allows for efficient calibration to a complete system of cap/swaption market quotes that performs well even in crises times, where structural breaks in volastrikematurity panels are typically observed. 
D. Belomestny, J.G.M. Schoenmakers, F. Dickmann, Multilevel dual approach for pricing American style derivatives, Finance and Stochastics, 17 (2013), pp. 717742.
Abstract
In this article we propose a novel approach to reduce the computational complexity of the dual method for pricing American options. We consider a sequence of martingales that converges to a given target martingale and decompose the original dual representation into a sum of representations that correspond to different levels of approximation to the target martingale. By next replacing in each representation true conditional expectations with their Monte Carlo estimates, we arrive at what one may call a multilevel dual Monte Carlo algorithm. The analysis of this algorithm reveals that the computational complexity of getting the corresponding target upper bound, due to the target martingale, can be significantly reduced. In particular, it turns out that using our new approach, we may construct a multilevel version of the wellknown nested Monte Carlo algorithm of Andersen and Broadie (2004) that is, regarding complexity, virtually equivalent to a nonnested algorithm. The performance of this multilevel algorithm is illustrated by a numerical example.

Abstract
The LIBOR market model is very popular for pricing interest rate derivatives, but is known to have several pitfalls. In addition, if the model is driven by a jump process, then the complexity of the drift term is growing exponentially fast (as a function of the tenor length). In this work, we consider a Lévydriven LIBOR model and aim at developing accurate and efficient logLévy approximations for the dynamics of the rates. The approximations are based on truncation of the drift term and Picard approximation of suitable processes. Numerical experiments for FRAs, caps and swaptions show that the approximations perform very well. In addition, we also consider the logLévy approximation of annuities, which offers good approximations for high volatility regimes.

Abstract
In this paper we carry over the concept of reverse probabilistic representations developed in Milstein, Schoenmakers, Spokoiny (2004) for diffusion processes, to discrete time Markov chains. We outline the construction of reverse chains in several situations and apply this to processes which are connected with jumpdiffusion models and finite state Markov chains. By combining forward and reverse representations we then construct transition density estimators for chains which have rootN accuracy in any dimension and consider some applications.

Abstract
The estimation of probability densities of variables described by stochastic differential equations has long been done using forward time estimators, which rely on the generation of forward in time realizations of the model. Recently, an estimator based on the combination of forward and reverse time estimators has been developed. This estimator has a higher order of convergence than the classical one. In this article, we explore the new estimator and compare the forward and forward? reverse estimators by applying them to a biochemical oxygen demand model. Finally, we show that the computational efficiency of the forward?reverse estimator is superior to the classical one, and discuss the algorithmic aspects of the estimator.

Abstract
Particle models are often used to simulate the spreading of a pollutant in coastal waters in case of a calamity at sea. Here many different particle tracks starting at the point of release are generated to determine the particle concentration at some critical locations after the release. This Monte Carlo method however consumes a large CPU time. Recently, Milstein, Schoenmakers and Spokoiny (2003) introduced the concept of reversetime diffusion. They derived a reverse system from the original forward simulation model and showed that the Monte Carlo estimator can also be based on realizations of this reverse system. In this paper we apply this concept to estimate particle concentrations in coastal waters. The results for the experiments considered show that the CPU time compared with the classical method is reduced orders of magnitude.

Abstract
The general reverse diffusion equations are derived and applied to the problem of transition density estimation of diffusion processes between two fixed states. For this problem we propose density estimation based on forward?reverse representations and show that this method allows essentially better results to be achieved than the usual kernel or projection estimation based on forward representations only.

Abstract
We study several lognormal approximations for LIBOR market models, where special attention is paid to their simulation by direct methods and lognormal random fields. In contrast to conventional numerical solution of SDE's this approach simulates the solution directly at a desired point in time and therefore may be more efficient. As such the proposed approximations provide valuable alternatives to the Euler method, in particular for long dated instruments. We carry out a pathwise comparison of the different lognormal approximations with the 'exact' SDE solution obtained by the Euler scheme using sufficiently small time steps. Also we test approximations obtained via numerical solution of the SDE by the Euler method, using larger time steps. It turns out that for typical volatilities observed in practice, improved versions of the lognormal approximation proposed by Brace, Gatarek and Musiela, citeBrace, appear to have excellent pathwise accuracy. We found out that this accuracy can also be achieved by Euler stepping the SDE using larger time steps, however, from a comparative cost analysis it follows that, particularly for long maturity options, the latter method is more time consuming than the lognormal approximation. We conclude with applications to some example LIBOR derivatives.

Abstract
To determine the probability of exceedence Monte Carlo simulation of stochastic models is often used. Mathematically this requires the evaluation of an expectation of some function of a solution of a stochastic model. This can be reformulated as a Kolmogorov final value problem. It can thus be calculated numerically by either solving a deterministic partial differential equation (Kolmogorov's Backwards equations) or by simulating a large number of trajectories of the stochastic differential equation. Here we discuss a composite method of variance reduced Monte Carlo simulation. The variance reduction is obtained by the Girsanov transformation to modify the stochastic model by a correction term that is obtained from an approximate solution of the partial differential equation computed by a classical numerical method. The composite method is more efficient than either the standard Monte Carlo or the classical numerical method. The approach is applied to estimate the probability of exceedence in a model for biochemicaloxygen demand.

Abstract
In this work we investigate a twophase model for concentrated suspensions. We construct a PDE formulation using a gradient flow structure featuring dissipative coupling between fluid and solid phase as well as different driving forces. Our construction is based on the concept of flow maps that also allows it to account for flows in moving domains with free boundaries. The major difference compared to similar existing approaches is the incorporation of a nonsmooth twohomogeneous term to the dissipation potential, which creates a normal pressure even for pure shear flows.

Abstract, PDF (397 kByte)
We study the class of continuous polynomial Volterra processes, which we define as solutions to stochas tic Volterra equations driven by a continuous semimartingale with affine drift and quadratic diffusion matrix in the state of the Volterra process. To demonstrate the versatility of possible state spaces within our framework, we construct polynomial Volterra processes on the unit ball. This construction is based on a stochastic invariance principle for stochastic Volterra equations with possibly singular kernels. Similarly to classical polynomial processes, polynomial Volterra processes allow for tractable expressions of the mo ments in terms of the unique solution to a system of deterministic integral equations, which reduce to a system of ODEs in the classical case. By applying this observation to the moments of the finitedimensional distributions we derive a uniqueness result for polynomial Volterra processes. Moreover, we prove that the moments are polynomials with respect to the initial condition, another crucial property shared by classical polynomial processes. The corresponding coefficients can be interpreted as a deterministic dual process and solve integral equations dual to those verified by the moments themselves. Additionally, we obtain a representation of the moments in terms of a pure jump process with killing, which corresponds to another nondeterministic dual process.

Abstract, PDF (755 kByte)
We present a novel approach to solve Stochastic Differential Equations (SDEs) with Deep Neural Networks by a Deep Operator Network (DeepONet) architecture. The notion of DeepONets relies on operator learning in terms of a reduced basis. We make use of a polynomial chaos expansion (PCE) of stochastic processes and call the corresponding architecture SDEONet. The PCE has been used extensively in the area of uncertainty quantification with parametric partial differential equations. This however is not the case with SDE, where classical sampling methods dominate and functional approaches are seen rarely. A main challenge with truncated PCEs occurs due to the drastic growth of the number of components with respect to the maximum polynomial degree and the number of basis elements. The proposed SDEONet architecture aims to alleviate the issue of exponential complexity by learning a sparse truncation of the Wiener chaos expansion. A complete convergence analysis is presented, making use of recent Neural Network approximation results. Numerical experiments illustrate the promising performance of the suggested approach in 1D and higher dimensions. 
J. Kern, B. Wiederhold, A LambdaFlemingViot type model with intrinsically varying population size, Preprint no. 3053, WIAS, Berlin, 2023.
Abstract, PDF (2956 kByte)
We propose an extension of the classical ?FlemingViot model to intrinsically varying pop ulation sizes. During events, instead of replacing a proportion of the population, a random mass dies and a, possibly different, random mass of new individuals is added. The model can also incorporate a drift term, representing infinitesimally small, but frequent events. We investigate el ementary properties of the model, analyse its relation to the ΛFlemingViot model and describe a duality relationship. Through the lookdown framework, we provide a forwardintime analysis of fixation and coming down from infinity. Furthermore, we present a new duality argument allowing one to deduce wellposedness of the measurevalued process without the necessity of proving uniqueness of the associated lookdown martingale problem.

Abstract, PDF (627 kByte)
We consider the problem of gelation in the cluster coagulation model introduced by Norris [Comm. Math. Phys., 209(2):407435 (2000)]; this model is general enough to incorporate various inhomogenieties in the evolution of clusters, for example, their shape, or their location in space. We derive general, sufficient criteria for stochastic gelation in this model, and for trajectories associated with this process to concentrate among solutions of a generalisation of the Flory equation; thus providing sufficient criteria for the equation to have gelling solutions. As particular cases, we extend results related to the classical MarcusLushnikov coagulation process and Smoluchowski coagulation equation, showing that reasonable 'homogenous' coagulation processes with exponent γ larger than 1 yield gelation. In another special case, we prove a law of large numbers for the trajectory of the empirical measure of the stochastic cluster coagulation process, by means of a uniqueness result for the solution of the aforementioned generalised Flory equation. Finally, we use coupling arguments with inhomogeneous random graphs to deduce sufficient criterion for strong gelation (the emergence of a particle of size O(N)).

Abstract, PDF (491 kByte)
We study the minimizing movement scheme for families of geodesically semiconvex functionals defined on either the HellingerKantorovich or the Spherical HellingerKantorovich space. By exploiting some of the finer geometric properties of those spaces, we prove that the sequence of curves, which are produced by geodesically interpolating the points generated by the minimizing movement scheme, converges to curves that satisfy the Evolutionary Variational Inequality (EVI), when the time step goes to 0.

Abstract, PDF (538 kByte)
We study a class of semiimplicit Taylortype numerical methods that are easy to implement and designed to solve multidimensional stochastic differential equations driven by a general rough noise, e.g. a fractional Brownian motion. In the multiplicative noise case, the equation is understood as a rough differential equation in the sense of T. Lyons. We focus on equations for which the drift coefficient may be unbounded and satisfies a onesided Lipschitz condition only. We prove wellposedness of the methods, provide a full analysis, and deduce their convergence rate. Numerical experiments show that our schemes are particularly useful in the case of stiff rough stochastic differential equations driven by a fractional Brownian motion.

Abstract, PDF (393 kByte)
We study RungeKutta methods for rough differential equations which can be used to calculate solutions to stochastic differential equations driven by processes that are rougher than a Brownian motion. We use a Taylor series representation (Bseries) for both the numerical scheme and the solution of the rough differential equation in order to determine conditions that guarantee the desired order of the local error for the underlying RungeKutta method. Subsequently, we prove the order of the global error given the local rate. In addition, we simplify the numerical approximation by introducing a RungeKutta scheme that is based on the increments of the driver of the rough differential equation. This simplified method can be easily implemented and is computational cheap since it is derivativefree. We provide a full characterization of this implementable RungeKutta method meaning that we provide necessary and sufficient algebraic conditions for an optimal order of convergence in case that the driver, e.g., is a fractional Brownian motion with Hurst index 1/4 < H ≤ 1/2. We conclude this paper by conducting numerical experiments verifying the theoretical rate of convergence.

Abstract, PDF (472 kByte)
We study the corrector equation in stochastic homogenization for a simplified Bernoulli percolation model on Z^d, d > 2. The model is obtained from the classical Bernoulli bond percolation by conditioning all bonds parallel to the first coordinate direction to be open. As a main result we prove (in fact for a slightly more general model) that stationary correctors exist and that all finite moments of the corrector are bounded. This extends a previous result by Gloria and the third author, where uniformly elliptic conductances are treated, to the degenerate case. Our argument is based on estimates on the gradient of the elliptic Green's function.

We consider the setting of estimating the mean of a random variable by a sequential stopping rule Monte Carlo (MC) method. The performance of a typical second moment based sequential stopping rule MC method is shown to be unreliable in such settings both by numerical examples and through analysis. By analysis and approximations, we construct a higher moment based stopping rule which is shown in numerical examples to perform more reliably and only slightly less efficiently than the second moment based stopping rule.

Abstract, Postscript (717 kByte), PDF (326 kByte)
We consider the problem of efficient estimation of the drift parameter of an OrnsteinUhlenbeck type process driven by a Lévy process when highfrequency observations are given. The estimator is constructed from the timecontinuous likelihood function that leads to an explicit maximum likelihood estimator and requires knowledge of the continuous martingale part. We use a thresholding technique to approximate the continuous part of the process. Under suitable conditions we prove asymptotic normality and efficiency in the HájekLe Cam sense for the resulting drift estimator. To obtain these results we prove an estimate for the Markov generator of a pure jump Lévy process. Finally, we investigate the finite sample behavior of the method and compare our approach to least squares estimation.

Abstract, Postscript (691 kByte), PDF (287 kByte)

Abstract, Postscript (800 kByte), PDF (246 kByte)
The paper focuses on the problem of pricing and hedging a European contingent claim for an incomplete market model, in which evolution of price processes for a saving account and stocks depends on an observable Markov chain. The pricing function is evaluated using the martingale approach. The equivalent martingale measure is introduced in a way that the Markov chain remains the historical one, and the pricing function satisfies the Cauchy problem for a system of linear parabolic equations. It is shown that any European contingent claim is attainable using a generalized selffinancing replicating strategy. For such a strategy, apart from the initial endowment, some additional funds are required both stepwise at the jump moments of the Markov chain and continuously between the jump moments. It is proved that the additional funds (the additional investments and consumptions) are present in the proposed strategy in the riskneutral manner, hence the generalized selffinancing strategy is selffinancing in mean. A payment for the considered option should consist of two parts: the initial endowment and a fair insurance premium in order to compensate for contributions and consumptions arising in future.

Abstract, Postscript (547 kByte), PDF (171 kByte)
In this paper, we prove a kind of Abelian theorem for a class of stochastic volatility models $(X, V)$, where both the state process $X$ and the volatility process $V$ may have jumps. Our results relate the asymptotic behavior of the characteristic function of $X_Delta$ for some $Delta > 0$ in a stationary regime to the BlumenthalGetoor indexes of the Lévy processes driving the jumps in $X$ and $V$ . The results obtained are used to construct consistent estimators for the above BlumenthalGetoor indexes based on lowfrequency observations of the state process $X$. We derive the convergence rates for the corresponding estimator and prove that these rates can not be improved in general.

Abstract
We analyse the law of the SLE tip at a fixed time in capacity parametrization. We describe it as the stationary law of a suitable diffusion process, and show that it has a density which is a unique solution of a certain PDE. Moreover, we identify the phases in which the even negative moments of the imaginary value are finite. For the negative second and negative fourth moments we provide closedform expressions.

Abstract
We consider stochastic scalar conservation laws with spatially inhomogeneous flux. The regularity of the flux function with respect to its spatial variable is assumed to be low, so that entropy solutions are not necessarily unique in the corresponding deterministic scalar conservation law. We prove that perturbing the system by noise leads to wellposedness.

Abstract
We establish an optimal, linear rate of convergence for the stochastic homogenization of discrete linear elliptic equations. We consider the model problem of independent and identically distributed coefficients on a discretized unit torus. We show that the difference between the solution to the random problem on the discretized torus and the first two terms of the twoscale asymptotic expansion has the same scaling as in the periodic case. In particular the L^{2}norm in probability of the H^{1}norm in space of this error scales like ε, where ε is the discretization parameter of the unit torus. The proof makes extensive use of previous results by the authors, and of recent annealed estimates on the Greens function by Marahrens and the third author.

Abstract
We show the existence of Lévytype stochastic processes in one space dimension with characteristic triplets that are either discontinuous at thresholds, or are stablelike with stability index functions for which the closures of the discontinuity sets are countable. For this purpose, we formulate the problem in terms of a Skorokhodspace martingale problem associated with nonlocal operators with discontinuous coefficients. These operators are approximated along a sequence of smooth nonlocal operators giving rise to Feller processes with uniformly controlled symbols. They converge uniformly outside of increasingly smaller neighborhoods of a Lebesgue nullset on which the singularities of the limit operator are located.

Abstract
Cubature methods, a powerful alternative to Monte Carlo due to Kusuoka [Adv. Math. Econ. 6, 6983, 2004] and LyonsVictoir [Proc. R. Soc.
Lond. Ser. A 460, 169198, 2004], involve the solution to numerous auxiliary ordinary differential equations. With focus on the NinomiyaVictoir algorithm [Appl. Math. Fin. 15, 107121, 2008], which corresponds to a concrete level $5$ cubature method, we study some parametric diffusion models motivated from financial applications, and exhibit structural conditions under which all involved ODEs can be solved explicitly and efficiently. We then enlarge the class of models for which this technique applies, by introducing a (modeldependent) variation of the NinomiyaVictoir method. Our method remains easy to implement; numerical examples illustrate the savings in computation time.

J. Diehl, P. Friz, Backward stochastic differential equations with rough drivers, Preprint no. arXiv:1008.0290, Cornell University Library, arXiv.org, 2010.
Abstract
Backward stochastic differential equations (BSDEs) in the sense of PardouxPeng [Backward stochastic differential equations and quasilinear parabolic partial differential equations, Lecture Notes in Control and Inform. Sci., 176, 200217, 1992] provide a nonMarkovian extension to certain classes of nonlinear partial differential equations; the nonlinearity is expressed in the socalled driver of the BSDE. Our aim is to deal with drivers which have very little regularity in time. To this end we establish continuity of BSDE solutions with respect to rough path metrics in the sense of Lyons [Differential equations driven by rough signals. Rev. Mat. Iberoamericana 14, no. 2, 215310, 1998] and so obtain a notion of "BSDE with rough driver". Existence, uniqueness and a version of Lyons' limit theorem in this context are established. Our main tool, aside from rough path analysis, is the stability theory for quadratic BSDEs due to Kobylanski [Backward stochastic differential equations and partial differential equations with quadratic growth. Ann. Probab., 28(2):558602, 2000].

Abstract
We prove a generalisation of Fernique's theorem which applies to a class of (measurable) functionals on abstract Wiener spaces by using the isoperimetric inequality. Our motivation comes from rough path theory where one deals with iterated integrals of Gaussian processes (which are generically not Gaussian). Gaussian integrability with explicitly given constants for variation and Hölder norms of the (fractional) Brownian rough path, Gaussian rough paths and the Banach space valued Wiener process enhanced with its Lévy area [Ledoux, Lyons, Quian. "Lévy area of Wiener processes in Banach spaces". Ann. Probab., 30(2):546578, 2002] then all follow from applying our main theorem.We prove a generalisation of Fernique's theorem which applies to a class of (measurable) functionals on abstract Wiener spaces by using the isoperimetric inequality.
