Abstract: 
I will present a survey of modelling, computational, and analytical work on thin liquid films of viscous fluids. I will particularly focus on films that are being acted on by more than one force. For example, if you've painted the ceiling, how do you model the effects of surface tension and gravity? How do you study the dynamics of the air/liquid interface? How do things change if you're considering a freshly painted wall? Or floor?

Abstract: 
These notes are for a course I gave while on sabbatical at UBC. The topics covered are: stochastic differential equations, solving PDEs using probability, Harnack inequalities for nondivergence form elliptic operators, martingale problems, and divergence form elliptic operators. This course presupposes the reader is familiar with stochastic calculus; see the notes on my web page for Stochastic Calculus, for example. These notes for the most part are based on my book Diffusions and Elliptic Operators, Springer-Verlag, 1997.
