#### Continuous-Time Markov Chains and Applications

Springer 2012; US$ 129.00This book gives a systematic treatment of singularly perturbed systems that naturally arise in control and optimization, queueing networks, manufacturing systems, and financial engineering. It presents results on asymptotic expansions of solutions of Komogorov forward and backward equations, properties of functional occupation measures, exponential... more...

#### Workshop on Branching Processes and Their Applications

Springer 2010; US$ 149.00This volume contains papers presented at the Workshop on Branching Processes and Their Applications (WBPA09), held in Badajoz, Spain, April 20-23, 2009. These papers deal with theoretical and practical aspects of branching process theory, showing it to be an area of active and interesting research. They clearly indicate the vitality of the theoretical... more...

#### Quantile-Based Reliability Analysis

Springer 2013; US$ 79.95This book provides a fresh approach to reliability theory, an area that has gained increasing relevance in fields from statistics and engineering to demography and insurance. Its innovative use of quantile functions gives an analysis of lifetime data that is generally simpler, more robust, and more accurate than the traditional methods, and opens the... more...

#### Inference for Diffusion Processes

Springer 2012; US$ 129.00Diffusion processes are a promising instrument for realistically modelling the time-continuous evolution of phenomena not only in the natural sciences but also in finance and economics. Their mathematical theory, however, is challenging, and hence diffusion modelling is often carried out incorrectly, and the according statistical inference is considered... more...

#### Matrix-Analytic Methods in Stochastic Models

Springer 2012; US$ 139.00Matrix-analytic and related methods have become recognized as an important and fundamental approach for the mathematical analysis of general classes of complex stochastic models. Research in the area of matrix-analytic and related methods seeks to discover underlying probabilistic structures intrinsic in such stochastic models, develop numerical algorithms... more...

#### The Self-Avoiding Walk

Springer 2012; US$ 79.95The self-avoiding walk is a mathematical model that has important applications in statistical mechanics and polymer science. In spite of its simple definition—a path on a lattice that does not visit the same site more than once—it is difficult to analyze mathematically. The Self-Avoiding Walk provides the first unified account... more...

#### Examples in Markov Decision Processes

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 129.00This invaluable book provides approximately eighty examples illustrating the theory of controlled discrete-time Markov processes. Except for applications of the theory to real-life problems like stock exchange, queues, gambling, optimal search etc, the main attention is paid to counter-intuitive, unexpected properties of optimization problems. Such... more...

#### Lectures on Stochastic Analysis: Diffusion Theory

Cambridge University Press 1987; US$ 32.00This book is based on a course given at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. more...

#### Random Walk in Random and Non-Random Environments

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 112.00The simplest mathematical model of the Brownian motion of physics is the simple, symmetric random walk. This book collects and compares current results — mostly strong theorems which describe the properties of a random walk. The modern problems of the limit theorems of probability theory are treated in the simple case of coin tossing. Taking... more...

#### Markov Chains

Springer 2013; US$ 129.00This new edition of Markov Chains: Models, Algorithms and Applications has been completely reformatted as a text, complete with end-of-chapter exercises, a new focus on management science, new applications of the models, and new examples with applications in financial risk management and modeling of financial data.This book consists of eight chapters. ... more...
