. The E-mail message field is required. It first examines in detail two important examples gambling processes and random walks before presenting the general theory itself in the subsequent chapters. Two major examples gambling processes and random walks are treated in detail from the beginning, before the general theory itself is presented in the subsequent chapters. The concepts presented are illustrated by examples and by 72 exercises and their complete solutions. Two major examples gambling processes and random walks are treated in detail from the beginning, before the general theory itself is presented in the subsequent chapters. It is completed by almost a hundred pages of solutions of exercises.

It also provides an introduction to discrete-time martingales and their relation to ruin probabilities and mean exit times, together with a chapter on spatial Poisson processes. A large focus is placed on the first step analysis technique and its applications to average hitting times and ruin probabilities. Aside from these two Springer titles, he has authored several others. It includes more than 70 exercises, along with complete solutions, that help illustrate and present all concepts. An introduction to discrete-time martingales and their relation to ruin probabilities and mean exit times is also provided, and the book includes a chapter on spatial Poisson processes with some recent results on moment identities and deviation inequalities for Poisson stochastic integrals. Understanding Markov Chains by Nicolas Privault is an attractive book. However, there is not much narrative holding the book together.

There is some narrative arc, though I wish the book had included more text explaining how the subject of Markov chains adheres together. Series Title: Responsibility: Nicolas Privault. It first examines in detail two important examples gambling processes and random walks before presenting the general theory itself in the subsequent chapters. It also discusses classical topics such as recurrence and transience, stationary and limiting distributions, as well as branching processes. This book provides an undergraduate introduction to discrete and continuous-time Markov chains and their applications. Introduction 1 Probability Background 1. Classical topics such as recurrence and transience, stationary and limiting distributions, as well as branching processes, are also covered.

Two major examples gambling processes and random walks are treated in detail from the beginning, before the general theory itself is presented in the subsequent chapters. The concepts presented are illustrated by examples and by 72 exercises and their complete solutions. The manuscript has been developed over the years from his courses on Stochastic Processes. Aside from these two Springer titles, he has authored several others. The paper is slightly cream-colored and the figures are well done. The concepts presented are illustrated by examples, 138 exercises and 9 problems with their solutions.

Much of the book is devoted to stating and proving theorems, and the proof are very clear. The explanation is detailed and clear. It also discusses classical topics such as recurrence and transience, stationary and limiting distributions, as well as branching processes. You won't find many applications to areas not closely related to Markov chains. He has authored the book, Stochastic Analysis in Discrete and Continuous Settings: With Normal Martingales, Lecture Notes in Mathematics, Springer, 2009 and was a co-editor for the book, Stochastic Analysis with Financial Applications, Progress in Probability, Vol.

Classical topics such as recurrence and transience, stationary and limiting distributions, as well as branching processes, ar This book provides an undergraduate introduction to discrete and continuous-time Markov chains and their applications. The concepts presented are illustrated by examples, 138 exercises and 9 problems with their solutions. Two major examples gambling processes and random walks are treated in detail from the beginning, before the general theory itself is presented in the subsequent chapters. Even the solutions to the exercises, where some authors are wont to skimp on presentation quality, are well done. Classical topics such as recurrence and transience, stationary and limiting distributions, as well as branching processes, are also covered.

The manuscript has been developed over the years from his courses on Stochastic Processes. An introduction to discrete-time martingales and their relation to ruin probabilities and mean exit times is also provided, and the book includes a chapter on spatial Poisson processes with some recent results on moment identities and deviation inequalities for Poisson stochastic integrals. Also, a big plus is the presence of numerous well-chosen exercises at the end of each chapter, which are discussed in a separate 'Solutions to the Exercises' part at the end of the book. A large focus is placed on the first step analysis technique and its applications to average hitting times and ruin probabilities. The explanation is detailed and clear. The concepts presented are illustrated by examples, 138 exercises and 9 problems with their solutions. Like most math books, it was typeset using LaTeX, but it looks better than most math books.

Perhaps the author uses LaTeX particularly well. The concepts presented are illustrated by examples and by 72 exercises and their complete solutions.
