Centennial Anniversary of the Birth of Kiyosi Itô
Kiyosi Itô is one of the founders of modern probability theory and known through Itô's integrals and Itô's formula, which play a fundamental role in stochastic analysis. He was awarded the inaugural Gauss prize at ICM 2006, and several other notable prizes such as the Kyoto Prize, the Wolff Prize and Japan's Order of Culture.
MSJ plans the following on this special occasion:
- (1) Open access to material of MSJ and RIMS:

- The collection of papers dedicated to Itô on his 80th birthday
"Itô's Stochastic Calculus and Probability Theory", ed. by N. Ikeda, S. Watanabe, M. Fukushima, H. Kunita, Springer, 1996. (link closed)
- (2) A special issue of the Journal of the Mathematical Society of Japan
- (3) An international conference
- International Conference on Stochastic Analysis at RIMS, Kyoto University, September 7th-11th, 2015 hosted by RIMS under the auspices of MSJ
