Markov processes

  • Risk Assessment and Evaluation of Predictionsby Mei-Ling Ting Lee; Mitchell Gail; Ruth Pfeiffer; Glen Satten; Tianxi Cai; Axel Gandy

    Springer 2013; US$ 169.00

    Methods of risk analysis and the outcome of particular evaluations and predictions are covered in detail in this proceedings volume, whose contributions are based on invited presentations from Professor Mei-Ling Ting Lee's 2011 symposium on Risk Analysis and the Evaluation of Predictions. This symposium was held at the University of Maryland in October... more...

  • Elements of Random Walk and Diffusion Processesby Oliver C. Ibe

    Wiley 2013; US$ 94.95

    Presents an important and unique introduction to random walk theory Random walk is a stochastic process that has proven to be a useful model in understanding discrete-state discrete-time processes across a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines. Elements of Random Walk and Diffusion Processes provides an interdisciplinary approach by including... more...

  • Functionals of Multidimensional Diffusions with Applications to Financeby Jan Baldeaux; Eckhard Platen

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    This research monograph provides an introduction to tractable multidimensional diffusion models, where transition densities, Laplace transforms, Fourier transforms, fundamental solutions or functionals can be obtained in explicit form. The book also provides an introduction to the use of Lie symmetry group methods for diffusions, which allows... more...

  • Markov Chainsby Bruno Sericola

    Wiley 2013; US$ 130.00

    Markov 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...

  • Quantile-Based Reliability Analysisby N. Unnikrishnan Nair; P.G. Sankaran; N. Balakrishnan

    Springer 2013; US$ 79.95

    This 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...

  • Applied Diffusion Processes from Engineering to Financeby Jacques Janssen; Oronzio Manca; Raimondo Manca

    Wiley 2013; US$ 180.00

    The aim of this book is to promote interaction between engineering, finance and insurance, as these three domains have many models and methods of solution in common for solving real-life problems. The authors point out the strict inter-relations that exist among the diffusion models used in engineering, finance and insurance. In each of the three... more...

  • Markov Chainsby Wai-Ki Ching; Ximin Huang; Michael K. Ng; Tak-Kuen Siu

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    This 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...

  • Random Walk in Random and Non-Random Environmentsby Pal Revesz

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 112.00

    The 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...

  • Fractional Fields and Applicationsby Serge Cohen; Jacques Istas

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.95

    This book focuses mainly on fractional Brownian fields and their extensions. It has been used to teach graduate students at Grenoble and Toulouse's Universities. It is as self-contained as possible and contains numerous exercises, with solutions in an appendix. After a foreword by Stéphane Jaffard, a long first chapter is devoted to classical... more...

  • Schrödinger Equations and Diffusion Theoryby Masao Nagasawa

    Springer 2012; US$ 39.95

    Schrödinger Equations and Diffusion Theory addresses the question "What is the Schrödinger equation?" in terms of diffusion processes, and shows that the Schrödinger equation and diffusion equations in duality are equivalent. In turn, Schrödinger’s conjecture of 1931 is solved. The theory of diffusion processes for... more...
