Reversibility and Stochastic Networks
by F.P. Kelly
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.

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.

The aim is to introduce the basic problems of non-linear PDEs with stochastic and irregular terms. We explain how it is possible to handle them using two main techniques: the notion of energy solutions and that of paracontrolled distributions.
