About the Classics in Mathematics Series: “Springer-Verlag began publishing books in higher mathematics in 1920, when the series Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften, initially conceived as a series of advanced textbooks, was founded by Richard Courant. A few years later, a new series Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebriete, survey reports of recent mathematical research, was added.
“Of over 400 books published in these series, many have become recognized classics and remain standard references for their subject. Springer is reissuing a selected few of these highly successful books in a new, inexpensive software edition, to make them easily accessible to younger generations of students and researchers.”

"Known for its versatility, the free programming language R is widely used for statistical computing and graphics, but is also a fully functional programming language well suited to scientific programming." — Back Cover
"This Second Course continues the development of the theory and applications of stochastic processes as promised in the preface of A First Course. We emphasize a careful treatment of basic structures in stochastic processes in symbiosis with the analysis of natural classes of stochastic processes arising from the biological, physical, and social sciences." — From the Preface (page ix)
"The purposes, level, and style of this new edition conform to the tenets set forth in the original preface. We continue with our tack of developing simultaneously theory and applications, intertwined so that they refurbish and elucidate each other." — From the Preface (page xi)
"This volume is concerned with various kinds of limit theorems for stochastic processes defined as a result of random perturbations of dynamical systems, especially with the long-time behavior of the perturbed system. In particular, exit problems, metastable states, optimal stabilization, and asymptotics of stationary distributions are also carefully considered." — From the back cover
"This book on scheduling covers both theoretical models as well as scheduling problems in the real world. Author Michael L. Pinedo also includes a CD that contains slide-shows from industry and movies dealing with implementations of scheduling systems." — From the back cover
"This book is designed for students who want to develop professional skills in the stochastic calculus and its application to problems in finance. The Wharton School course on which the book is based is designed for energetic students who have had some experience with probability and statistics, but who have not had advanced courses in stochastic processes." — From the back cover
"This timely and synoptic text contains the essentials of queueing networks, from the classical product-form theory to the more recent developments such as diffusion and fluid limits, stochastic comparisons, stability, dynamic scheduling, and optimization." — From the back cover
"This monograph is the outgrowth of research carried out at the University of Illinois over a three-year period beginning in the latter half of 1974. The objective of the monograph is to provide a unifying and mathematically rigorous theory for a broad class of dynamic programming and discrete-time stochastic optimal control problems. It is divided into two parts, which can be read independently." — From the Preface (page xi)
"Stochastic Models: An Algorithmic Approach fulfills the widely perceived need for an introductory text which demonstrates the effective use of simple stochastic models to gain insight into the behaviour of complex stochastic systems." — From the back cover
"This book is very different from any other publication in the field and it is unique because of its focus on the practical implementation of the simulation and estimation methods presented." — From the back cover
"The theory of random matrices plays an important role in many areas of pure mathematics and employs a variety of sophisticated mathematical tools (analytical, probabilistic, and combinatorial). This diverse array of tools, while attesting to the vitality of the field, presents several formidable obstacles to the newcomer, and even to the expert probabilist. This rigorous introduction to the basic theory is sufficiently self-contained to be accessible to graduate students in mathematics or related sciences who have mastered probability theory at the graduate level, but who have not necessarily been exposed to advanced notions of functional analysis, algebra, or geometry." — From the back cover
"This book gives a rigorous treatment of the fundamentals of plane geometry — Euclidean, spherical, elliptical, and hyperbolic — from an analytic point of view." — From the back cover
