Denumerable Markov chains by
John G Kemeny(
Book
)
43 editions published between 1966 and 1976 in 4 languages and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This textbook provides a systematic treatment of denumerable Markov chains, covering both the foundations of the subject and some in topics in potential theory and boundary theory. It is a discussion of relations among what might be called the descriptive quantities associated with Markov chainsprobabilities of events and means of random variables that give insight into the behavior of the chains. The approach, by means of infinite matrices, simplifies the notation, shortens statements and proofs of theorems, and often suggests new results. This second edition includes the new chapter, Introduction to Random Fields, written by David Griffeath

Introduction to probability by
Charles M Grinstead(
Book
)
9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This text is designed for an introductory probability course at the university level for sophomores, juniors, and seniors in mathematics, physical and social sciences, engineering, and computer science. It presents a thorough treatment of ideas and techniques necessary for a firm understanding of the subject. The text is also recommended for use in discrete probability courses. The material is organized so that the discrete and continuous probability discussions are presented in a separate, but parallel, manner. This organization does not emphasize an overly rigorous or formal view of probability and therefore offers some strong pedagogical value. Hence, the discrete discussions can sometimes serve to motivate the more abstract continuous probability discussions.It's features include: key ideas are developed in a somewhat leisurely style, provided a variety of interesting applications to probability and showing some nonintuitive ideas; over 600 exercises provide the opportunity for practicing skills and developing a sound understanding of ideas; and, numerous historical comments deal with the development of discrete probability. The text includes many computer programs that illustrate the algorithms or the methods of computation for important problems
