9780898714418: Stochastic Processes (Classics in Applied Mathematics)

This introductory textbook explains how and why probability models are applied to scientific fields such as medicine, biology, physics, oceanography, economics, and psychology to solve problems about stochastic processes. It does not just show how a problem is solved but explains why by formulating questions and first steps in the solutions. Stochastic Processes is ideal for a course aiming to give examples of the wide variety of empirical phenomena for which stochastic processes provide mathematical models. It introduces the methods of probability model building and provides the reader with mathematically sound techniques as well as the ability to further study the theory of stochastic processes. Originally published in 1962, this was the first comprehensive survey of stochastic processes requiring only a minimal background in introductory probability theory and mathematical analysis. Stochastic Processes continues to be unique, with many topics and examples still not discussed in other textbooks.

Book Description:

Ideal for courses aiming to give examples of the wide variety of empirical phenomena for which stochastic processes provide mathematical models. It introduces the methods of probability model building and provides the reader with mathematically sound techniques as well as the ability to further study the theory of stochastic processes.

From the Back Cover:

Well-written and accessible, this classic introduction to stochastic processes and related mathematics is appropriate for advanced undergraduate students of mathematics with a knowledge of calculus and continuous probability theory. The treatment offers examples of the wide variety of empirical phenomena for which stochastic processes provide mathematical models, and it develops the methods of probability model-building.
Chapter 1 presents precise definitions of the notions of a random variable and a stochastic process and introduces the Wiener and Poisson processes. Subsequent chapters examine conditional probability and conditional expectation, normal processes and covariance stationary processes, and counting processes and Poisson processes. The text concludes with explorations of renewal counting processes, Markov chains, random walks, and birth and death processes, including examples of the wide variety of phenomena to which these stochastic processes may be applied. Numerous examples and exercises complement every section.
