Reversibility and Stochastic Networks

Publisher: John Wiley and Sons Ltd 1979
Number of pages: 233
Examines the behavior in equilibrium of vector stochastic processes or stochastic networks, considering a wide range of applications by discussing stochastic models that arise in fields such as operational research, biology, and polymer science. Reviews the concept of reversibility, including material necessary to establish terminology and notation. Explains such uses as the study of the output from a queue, the flow of current in a conductor, the age of an allele, and the equilibrium distribution of a polymerization process. Also examines the extent to which the assumption of reversibility can be relaxed without destroying the associated tractability. Requires an understanding of Markov processes.

In this book, which is basically self-contained, the following topics are treated thoroughly: Brownian motion as a Gaussian process, Brownian motion as a Markov process, Brownian motion as a martingale, Markov chains, renewal theory, etc.

The goal of this course is to give useful understanding for solving problems formulated by stochastic differential equations models in science, engineering and finance. Typically, these problems require numerical methods to obtain a solution.

Presents new modelling and analysis techniques for the description of discrete event dynamic systems. Created within the text is a calculus which allows the derivation of analytical tools for computing the time behavior of this type of system.
