Stochastic flows and geometric analysis on path spaces

K. David Elworthy

Full-text: Open access


Some aspects of geometric analysis on path spaces are reviewed. Special emphasis is given to the relevance of stochastic flows to this analysis, and to the role of Ricci and higher order Weitzenböck curvatures. Path spaces of diffeomorphism groups and of compact symmetric spaces are considered.
