Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a final year undergraduate text on stochastic processes, a tool used widely by statisticians and researchers working in the mathematics of finance. The book will give a detailed treatment of conditional expectation and probability, a topic which in principle belongs to probability theory, but is essential as a tool for stochastic processes. Although the book is a final year text, the author has chosen to use exercises as the main means of explanation for the various topics, and the book will have a strong self-study element. The author has concentrated on the major topics within stochastic analysis: Stochastic Processes, Markov Chains, Spectral Theory, Renewal Theory, Martingales and It? Stochastic Processes.

Synopsis:

Stochastic processes is a tool widely used by statisticians and researchers working, for example, in the mathematics of finance. This is an introductory text that has a strong emphasis on exercises, complete with informal hints and fully-worked solutions.
