#### General Irreducible Markov Chains and Non-Negative Operators

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 44.00Presents the theory of general irreducible Markov chains and its connection to the Perron-Frobenius theory of nonnegative operators. more...

#### Introduction to Stochastic Search and Optimization

Wiley 2005; US$ 192.00A unique interdisciplinary foundation for real-world problem solving Stochastic search and optimization techniques are used in a vast number of areas, including aerospace, medicine, transportation, and finance, to name but a few. Whether the goal is refining the design of a missile or aircraft, determining the effectiveness of a new drug, developing... more...

#### Statistical Analysis of Stochastic Processes in Time

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 48.00This 2004 book introduces ways of modelling phenomena that occur over time. Covers stochastic processes, survival analysis, time series and more. more...

#### Stochastic Systems In Merging Phase Space

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 109.00This book provides recent results on the stochastic approximation of systems by weak convergence techniques. General and particular schemes of proofs for average, diffusion, and Poisson approximations of stochastic systems are presented, allowing one to simplify complex systems and obtain numerically tractable models. The systems discussed in the book... more...

#### Introduction to Empirical Processes and Semiparametric Inference

Springer New York 2007; US$ 189.00The goal of this book is to introduce statisticians, and other researchers with a background in mathematical statistics, to empirical processes and semiparametric inference. These powerful research techniques are surpr- ingly useful for studying large sample properties of statistical estimates from realistically complex models as well as for developing... more...

#### Quasi-Stationary Phenomena in Nonlinearly Perturbed Stochastic Systems

De Gruyter 2008; US$ 266.00This book is devoted to the mathematical studies of stochastic systems with quasi-stationary phenomena which have applications to population dynamics or epidemic models. In addition to its use for the research and reference purposes, the book can also be used in special courses on the subject and as a complementary reading in general courses... more...

#### Markov Processes and Applications

Wiley 2008; US$ 99.00"This well-written book provides a clear and accessible treatment of the theory of discrete and continuous-time Markov chains, with an emphasis towards applications. The mathematical treatment is precise and rigorous without superfluous details, and the results are immediately illustrated in illuminating examples. This book will be extremely useful... more...

#### Level Sets and Extrema of Random Processes and Fields

Wiley 2009; US$ 149.00A timely and comprehensive treatment of random field theory with applications across diverse areas of study Level Sets and Extrema of Random Processes and Fields discusses how to understand the properties of the level sets of paths as well as how to compute the probability distribution of its extremal values, which are two general classes of problems... more...

#### Hasard, nombres aléatoires et méthode Monte Carlo

Presses de l''niversite du Quebec 2001; US$ 24.00L'univers de l'homme moderne, si pétri de rationalisme, si environné de technologies et d'artéfacts rassurants, est néanmoins imprégné de hasard, davantage que ne l'était celui de ses ancêtres. L'auteur traite des séries de nombres aléatoires, de leurs propriétés, leur... more...

#### Lectures on Dynamics of Stochastic Systems

Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 77.95Fluctuating parameters appear in a variety of physical systems and phenomena. They typically come either as random forces/sources, or advecting velocities, or media (material) parameters, like refraction index, conductivity, diffusivity, etc. Models naturally render to statistical description, where random processes and fields express the input parameters... more...
