The authors present the results of their development of a theory of the geometry of differential equations, focusing especially on Lagrangians and Poincare-Cartan forms. They also cover certain aspects of the theory of exterior differential systems.

An introduction to those aspects of partial differential equations and optimal control most relevant to finance: PDE’s naturally associated to diffusion processes, Kolmogorov equations and their applications, linear parabolic equations, etc.

This volume is concerned with the relationship between symmetries of a linear second-order partial differential equation of mathematical physics and the coordinate systems in which the equation admits solutions via separation of variables.
