#### Stopped Random Walks

Springer New York 2009; US$ 42.77This 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...

#### Analysis and Stochastics of Growth Processes and Interface Models

OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 97.99The combination of articles from the two fields of analysis and probability is highly unusual and makes this book an important resource for researchers working in all areas close to the interface of these fields. more...

#### Brownian Motion

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 36.95Stochastic processes occur in a large number of fields in sciences and engineering, so they need to be understood by applied mathematicians, engineers and scientists alike. This work is ideal for a first course introducing the reader gently to the subject matter of stochastic processes. It uses Brownian motion since this is a stochastic... more...

#### Markov Networks in Evolutionary Computation

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 137.44This book focuses on the different steps involved in the conception, implementation and application of Estimation of distribution algorithms (EDAs) that use Markov networks and undirected models in general. more...

#### Continuous-Time Markov Decision Processes

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 74.00This volume provides the first book entirely devoted to recent developments on the theory and applications of continuous-time Markov decision processes (MDPs). The MDPs presented here include most of the cases that arise in applications. more...

#### Workshop on Branching Processes and Their Applications

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 126.87One of the charms of mathematics is the contrast between its generality and its applicability to concrete, even everyday, problems. Branching processes are typical in this. Their niche of mathematics is the abstract pattern of reproduction, sets of individuals changing size and composition through their members reproducing; in other words, what Plato... more...

#### Quantile-Based Reliability Analysis

Springer New York 2013; US$ 56.03This 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 Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 105.72This book offers an overview of diffusion processes as an instrument for realistically modelling the time-continuous evolution of phenomena in the natural sciences as well as in finance and economics. The theory is demonstrated using real data applications. more...

#### Matrix-Analytic Methods in Stochastic Models

Springer New York 2012; US$ 123.58Matrix-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 New York 2012; US$ 71.29The self-avoiding walk is a mathematical model that has important applications in statistical mechanics and polymer science. Here is an affordable reprint of a classic monograph that offers a focused look at this important model. more...
