An Introduction To Markov Processes

by

An Introduction To Markov Processes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides a rigorous but elementary introduction to the theory of Markov Processes on a countable state space. It should be accessible to students with a solid undergraduate background in mathematics, including students from engineering, economics, physics, and biology. Topics covered are: Doeblin's theory, general ergodic properties, and continuous time processes. A whole chapter is devoted to reversible processes and the use of their associated Dirichlet forms to estimate the rate of convergence to equilibrium.

Synopsis:

Provides a more accessible introduction than other books on Markov processes by emphasizing the structure of the subject and avoiding sophisticated measure theory Leads the reader to a rigorous understanding of basic theory

About the Author
