### An introduction to probabilistic methods with applications

This special volume of the ESAIM Journal, Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis, contains a collection of articles on probabilistic interpretations of some classes of nonlinear integro-differential equations. The selected contributions deal with a wide range of topics in applied probability theory and stochastic analysis, with applications in a variety of scientific disciplines, including physics, biology, fluid mechanics, molecular chemistry, financial mathematics and bayesian statistics....
