This 3rd edition of the successful Elements of Applied Stochastic Processes improves on the last edition by condensing the material and organising it into a more teachable format. It provides more in-depth coverage of Markov chains and simple Markov process and gives added emphasis to statistical inference in stochastic processes.
  • Integration of theory and application offers improved teachability
  • Provides a comprehensive introduction to stationary processes and time series analysis
  • Integrates a broad set of applications into the text
  • Utilizes a wealth of examples from research papers and monographs

"...besides conveying the concepts of stochastic processes, this book succeeds in providing insight into the reasons why for a particular topic certain lines of investigation are pursued and why certain variables/functions are introduced." (Technometrics, Vol. 45, No. 3, August 2003)
