Description

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.

Key Features

  • A self-contained, prgamatic exposition of the needed elements of random variable theory
  • Logically integrated derviations of the Chapman-Kolmogorov equation, the Kramers-Moyal equations, the Fokker-Planck equations, the Langevin equation, the master equations, and the moment equations
  • Detailed exposition of Monte Carlo simulation methods, with plots of many numerical examples
  • Clear treatments of first passages, first exits, and stable state fluctuations and transitions
  • Carefully drawn applications to Brownian motion, molecular diffusion, and chemical kinetics

Readership

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
