#### Markov Chains

Wiley 2013; US$ 139.00 US$ 120.47Markov chains are a fundamental class of stochastic processes. They are widely used to solve problems in a large number of domains such as operational research, computer science, communication networks and manufacturing systems. The success of Markov chains is mainly due to their simplicity of use, the large number of available theoretical results... more...

#### The Dynamics of Discrete Populations and Series of Events

CRC Press 2014; US$ 79.95Discrete phenomena are an important aspect of various complex systems, acting both as underlying driving mechanisms and as manifestations of diverse behaviours. However, the characterisation of these discrete phenomena requires models that go beyond those featured in existing books. Largely concerned with mathematical models used to describe time-varying... more...

#### Markov Processes from K. Ito's Perspective (AM-155)

Princeton University Press 2003; US$ 85.00 US$ 77.35Kiyosi Itô's greatest contribution to probability theory may be his introduction of stochastic differential equations to explain the Kolmogorov-Feller theory of Markov processes. Starting with the geometric ideas that guided him, this book gives an account of Itô's program. The modern theory of Markov processes was initiated by A. N. Kolmogorov.... more...

#### Semigroups, Boundary Value Problems and Markov Processes

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 100.73A careful and accessible exposition of functional analytic methods in stochastic analysis is provided in this book. It focuses on the interrelationship between three subjects in analysis: Markov processes, semi groups and elliptic boundary value problems. The author studies a general class of elliptic boundary value problems for second-order, Waldenfels... more...

#### Natural Aerodynamics

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Natural Aerodynamics focuses on the mathematics of any problem in air motion. This book discusses the general form of the law of fluid motion, relationship between pressure and wind, production of vortex filaments, and conduction of vorticity by viscosity. The flow at moderate Reynolds numbers, turbulence in a stably stratified fluid, natural exploitation... more...

#### Latent Markov Models for Longitudinal Data

CRC Press 2012; US$ 104.95Drawing on the authors’ extensive research in the analysis of categorical longitudinal data, Latent Markov Models for Longitudinal Data focuses on the formulation of latent Markov models and the practical use of these models. Numerous examples illustrate how latent Markov models are used in economics, education, sociology, and other fields. The... more...

#### Elements of the Random Walk

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 54.00A self-contained introduction to the applications of random walk techniques. more...

#### Pseudo Differential Operators And Markov Processes, Volume III

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 136.00 US$ 123.76This volume concentrates on how to construct a Markov process by starting with a suitable pseudo-differential operator. Feller processes, Hunt processes associated with Lp-sub-Markovian semigroups and processes constructed by using the Martingale problem are at the center of the considerations. The potential theory of these processes is further developed... more...

#### Markov Decision Processes with Their Applications

Springer US 2007; US$ 156.69Markov Decision Processes With Their Applications examines MDPs and their applications in the optimal control of discrete event systems (DESs), optimal replacement, and optimal allocations in sequential online auctions. This book is intended for researchers, mathematicians, advanced graduate students, and engineers who are interested in optimal... more...

#### Stopped Random Walks

Springer New York 2009; US$ 45.28This new edition offers updated content and an outlook on further results, extensions and generalizations on stopped random walks. It also contains a new chapter on perturbed random walks and nearly 100 new bibliographic references. more...
