Most widely held works by J. Laurie Snell
Introduction to finite mathematics by John G Kemeny( Book )

94 editions published between 1956 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 2,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an introduction to the elementary theory of logic, sets, probability theory, and linear algebra. It treats a number of practical applications, useful in everyday life, but applicable to biological, behavioral, and social sciences
Finite Markov chains by John G Kemeny( Book )

78 editions published between 1958 and 1983 in 4 languages and held by 1,346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematical models in the social sciences by John G Kemeny( Book )

53 editions published between 1962 and 1978 in English and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Random walks and electric networks by Peter G Doyle( Book )

22 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Probability theory, like much of mathematics, is indebted to physics as a source of problems and intuition for solving these problems. Unfortunately, the level of abstraction of current mathematics often makes it difficult for anyone but an expert to appreciate this fact. Random Walks and Electric Networks looks at the interplay of physics and mathematics in terms of an example -- the relation between elementary electric network theory and random walks --where the mathematics involved is at the college level
Denumerable Markov chains by John G Kemeny( Book )

18 editions published in 1966 in 3 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Markov random fields and their applications by Ross Kindermann( Book )

16 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction to probability by Charles M Grinstead( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text is designed for an introductory probability course taken by sophomores, juniors, and seniors in mathematics, the physical and social sciences, engineering, and computer science. It presents a thorough treatment of probability ideas and techniques necessary for a ?rm understanding of the subject. The text can be used in a variety of course lengths, levels, and areas of emphasis."--Open Textbook Library
Introduction to probability theory with computing by J. Laurie Snell( Book )

15 editions published between 1975 and 1986 in English and Japanese and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Probability mesasures; Random variables; Limit theorems; Markov chains
Probability tales by Charles M Grinstead( Book )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores four real-world topics through the lens of probability theory. It can be used to supplement a standard text in probability or statistics. Most elementary textbooks present the basic theory and then illustrate the ideas with some neatly packaged examples. Here the authors assume that the reader has seen, or is learning, the basic theory from another book and concentrate in some depth on the following topics: streaks, the stock market, lotteries, and fingerprints. This extended format allows the authors to present multiple approaches to problems and to pursue promising side discussions in ways that would not be possible in a book constrained to cover a fixed set of topics."--Page 4 of cover
Topics in contemporary probability and its applications( Book )

Denumerable Markov chains by John G Kemeny( Book )

23 editions published in 1976 in 3 languages and held by 123 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 chains-probabilities 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
