The red line pervading this book is the two-fold reduction of a random partial differential equation disturbed by some external force as present in many important applications in science and engineering. First, the random partial differential equation is reduced to a set of random ordinary differential equations in the spirit of the method of lines. These are then further reduced to a family of (deterministic) ordinary
The monograph will be of benefit, not only to mathematicians, but can also be used for interdisciplinary courses in informatics and engineering.
