An Introduction for Physical Scientists
- Daniel Gillespie, Naval Weapons Center
Markov process theory is basically an extension of ordinary calculus to accommodate functions whos time evolutions are not entirely deterministic. It is a subject that is becoming increasingly important for many fields of science. This book develops the single-variable theory of both continuous and jump Markov processes in a way that should appeal especially to physicists and chemists at the senior and graduate level.
Professionals/scientists without training in probability and statistics (using books as a "self-help" guide), senior undergraduate and graduate level students in physics and chemistry and mathematicians specializing in game theory, and finite math.
