Statistics for stochastic differential equations (SDEs) attempts to use SDEs as statistical models for real-world phenomena. This involves an understanding of qualitative properties of this class of stochastic processes which includes Brownian motion as well as estimation of parameters in the SDE or a nonparametric estimation of drift and diffusivity fields from observations. Observations can be in continuous time, in high frequency discrete time considering the limit of small inter-observation times or in discrete time with constant inter-obseration times. Application areas of SDEs where state spaces are naturally viewed as manifolds or stratified spaces include multivariate stochastic volatility models, stochastic evolution of shapes (e.g. of biological cells), time-varying image deformations for video analysis and phylogenetic trees.
