The transition probabilities of a usual diffusion process (i.e., a process obeying the Ito-equation) satisfy a standard pde known as diffusion equation. The infinitely dimensional Ito-equation is considered. The main goal of the paper is to give an appropriate meaning of the corresponding infinitely dimensional analogue of the diffusion equation. Such an analogue naturally involves variational derivatives. A special case of a nonlinear Ito-equation in infinite dimensions is also discussed. Only the outlines of some proofs are given.
