#### Irrfahrten und verwandte Zufälle

Springer 2013; US$ 29.99Dem Autor des bekannten Lehrwerkes 'Stochastik für Einsteiger' gelingt mit diesem Buch auf geradezu spielerische Weise, den Leser mit zahlreichen überraschenden Zufallsphänomenen und Nicht-Standard-Grenzwertsätzen im Zusammenhang mit einfachen Irrfahrten und verwandten Themen zu fesseln. Das Werk besticht mit einer durchgängig... more...

#### Optimal Stochastic Control Schemes within a Structural Reliability Framework

Springer 2013; US$ 54.99The book addresses the topic of on-line implementation of structural and mechanical design criteria as an explicit part of optimal control schemes. The intention of the present research monograph is to reflect recent developments within this area. Examples of application of relevant control algorithms are included to illustrate their practical implementation.... more...

#### Structural Dynamic Analysis with Generalized Damping Models

Wiley 2013; US$ 129.00Since Lord Rayleigh introduced the idea of viscous damping in his classic work "The Theory of Sound" in 1877, it has become standard practice to use this approach in dynamics, covering a wide range of applications from aerospace to civil engineering. However, in the majority of practical cases this approach is adopted more for mathematical convenience... more...

#### Probabilistic Inequalities

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 172.00In this monograph, the author presents univariate and multivariate probabilistic inequalities with coverage on basic probabilistic entities like expectation, variance, moment generating function and covariance. These are built on the recent classical form of real analysis inequalities which are also discussed in full details. This treatise is the culmination... more...

#### Upper and Lower Bounds for Stochastic Processes

Springer 2014; US$ 149.00The book develops modern methods and in particular the 'generic chaining' to bound stochastic processes. This methods allows in particular to get optimal bounds for Gaussian and Bernoulli processes. Applications are given to stable processes, infinitely divisible processes, matching theorems, the convergence of random Fourier series, of orthogonal... more...

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

Princeton University Press 2003; US$ 72.50Kiyosi 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...

#### Topics in Stochastic Processes

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Topics in Stochastic Processes covers specific processes that have a definite physical interpretation and that explicit numerical results can be obtained. This book contains five chapters and begins with the L2 stochastic processes and the concept of prediction theory. The next chapter discusses the principles of ergodic theorem to real analysis,... more...

#### Stochastic Convergence

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Stochastic Convergence, Second Edition covers the theoretical aspects of random power series dealing with convergence problems. This edition contains eight chapters and starts with an introduction to the basic concepts of stochastic convergence. The succeeding chapters deal with infinite sequences of random variables and their convergences, as well... more...
