Introduction to random time and quantum randomness by Kai Lai Chung( )

26 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is made up of two essays on the role of time in probability and quantum physics. In the first one, K. L. Chung explains why, in his view, probability theory starts where random time appears. This idea is illustrated in various probability schemes and the deep impact of those random times on the theory of the stochastic process is shown." "In the second essay J-C Zambrini shows why quantum physics is not a regular probabilistic theory, but also why stochastic analysis provides new tools for analyzing further the meaning of Feynman's path integral approach and a number of foundational issues of quantum physics far beyond what is generally considered. The role of the time parameter, in this theory, is critically re-examined and a fresh way to approach the long-standing problem of the quantum time observable is suggested."--BOOK JACKET
Markov chains with stationary transition probabilities by Kai Lai Chung( Book )

48 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presupposes no knowledge of Markov chains but it does assume the elements of general probability theory as given in a modern introductory course."--Preface
Introduction to stochastic integration by Kai Lai Chung( Book )

51 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A highly readable introduction to stochastic integration and stochastic differential equations, this book combines developments of the basic theory with applications. It is written in a style suitable for the text of a graduate course in stochastic calculus, following a course in probability.   Using the modern approach, the stochastic integral is defined for predictable integrands and local martingales; then Itô’s change of variable formula is developed for continuous martingales. Applications include a characterization of Brownian motion, Hermite polynomials of martingales, the Feynman–Kac functional and the Schrödinger equation. For Brownian motion, the topics of local time, reflected Brownian motion, and time change are discussed.   New to the second edition are a discussion of the Cameron–Martin–Girsanov transformation and a final chapter which provides an introduction to stochastic differential equations, as well as many exercises for classroom use.   This book will be a valuable resource to all mathematicians, statisticians, economists, and engineers employing the modern tools of stochastic analysis.   The text also proves that stochastic integration has made an important impact on mathematical progress over the last decades and that stochastic calculus has become one of the most powerful tools in modern probability theory. —Journal of the American Statistical Association     An attractive text…written in [a] lean and precise style…eminently readable. Especially pleasant are the care and attention devoted to details… A very fine book. —Mathematical Reviews  
Selected works of Kai Lai Chung by Kai Lai Chung( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique volume presents a collection of the extensive journal publications written by Kai Lai Chung over a span of 70-odd years. It is produced to celebrate his 90th birthday. The selection is only a subset of the many contributions that he has made throughout his prolific career. Another volume, Chance and Choice, published by World Scientific in 2004, contains yet another subset, with four articles in common with this volume. Kai Lai Chung's research contributions have had a major influence on several areas in probability. Among his most significant works are those related to sums of independent random variables, Markov chains, time reversal of Markov processes, probabilistic potential theory, Brownian excursions, and gauge theorems for the Schrdinger equation

Markov processes, Brownian motion, and time symmetry by Kai Lai Chung( )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the reviews of the First Edition: "This excellent book is based on several sets of lecture notes written over a decade and has its origin in a one-semester course given by the author at the ETH, Zürich, in the spring of 1970. The author's aim was to present some of the best features of Markov processes and, in particular, of Brownian motion with a minimum of prerequisites and technicalities. The reader who becomes acquainted with the volume cannot but agree with the reviewer that the author was very successful in accomplishing this goal{u2026}The volume is very useful for people who wish to learn Markov processes but it seems to the reviewer that it is also of great interest to specialists in this area who could derive much stimulus from it. One can be convinced that it will receive wide circulation." (Mathematical Reviews) This new edition contains 9 new chapters which include new exercises, references, and multiple corrections throughout the original text

Lectures from Markov processes to Brownian motion by Kai Lai Chung( Book )

16 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book evolved from several stacks of lecture notes written over a decade and given in classes at slightly varying levels. In transforming the over lapping material into a book, I aimed at presenting some of the best features of the subject with a minimum of prerequisities and technicalities. (Needless to say, one man's technicality is another's professionalism.) But a text frozen in print does not allow for the latitude of the classroom; and the tendency to expand becomes harder to curb without the constraints of time and audience. The result is that this volume contains more topics and details than I had intended, but I hope the forest is still visible with the trees. The book begins at the beginning with the Markov property, followed quickly by the introduction of option al times and martingales. These three topics in the discrete parameter setting are fully discussed in my book A Course In Probability Theory (second edition, Academic Press, 1974). The latter will be referred to throughout this book as the Course, and may be considered as a general background; its specific use is limited to the mate rial on discrete parameter martingale theory cited in {sect} 1. 4. Apart from this and some dispensable references to Markov chains as examples, the book is self-contained
Elementary probability theory : with stochastic processes and an introduction to mathematical finance by Kai Lai Chung( Book )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is an introductory textbook on probability theory and its applications. Basic concepts such as probability measure, random variable, distribution, and expectation are fully treated without technical complications. Both the discrete and continuous cases are covered, the elements of calculus being used in the latter case. The emphasis is on essential probabilistic reasoning, amply motivated, explained, and illustrated with a large number of carefully selected examples. Special topics include combinatorial problems, urn schemes, Poisson processes, random walks, genetic models, and Markov chains. Problems with solutions are provided at the end of each chapter. Its easy style and full discussion make this a useful text not only for mathematics and statistics majors, but also for students in engineering and physical, biological, and social sciences. This edition adds two new chapters covering applications to mathematical finance. Elements of modern portfolio and option theories are presented in a detailed and rigorous manner. The approach distinguishes this text from other more mathematically advanced treatises or more technical manuals. Kai Lai Chung is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Stanford University. Farid AitSahlia is a Senior Scientist with DemandTec, where he develops econometric and optimization methods for demand-based pricing models. He is also a visiting scholar in the department of statistics at Stanford University, where he obtained his Ph.D.in operations research"--Publisher description
Lectures on boundary theory for Markov chains by Kai Lai Chung( Book )

19 editions published between 1968 and 1971 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The boundary theory as viewed in this book is a study of Markov chains with certain infinities (discontinuities that are not jumps) in the sample functions. In the first part a simple 'boundary' is set up by a direct, intuitive method and the basic relevant sample behavior is studied. The second, more substantial part of this book deals with the analysis of the chain in relation to its menimal part and its exits and entrances to and from the boundary. (Author)
From Brownian motion to Schrödinger's Equation by Kai Lai Chung( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, the study of the theory of Brownian motion has become a powerful tool in the solution of problems in mathematical physics. This self-contained and readable exposition by leading authors, provides a rigorous account of the subject, emphasizing the "explicit" rather than the "concise" where necessary, and addressed to readers interested in probability theory as applied to analysis and mathematical physics. A distinctive feature of the methods used is the ubiquitous appearance of stopping time. The book contains much original research by the authors (some of which published here for the first time) as well as detailed and improved versions of relevant important results by other authors, not easily accessible in existing literature

Seminar on Stochastic Processes, 1981 by E Çınlar( Book )

16 editions published between 1981 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume consists of about half of the papers presented during a three-day seminar on stochastic processes held at Northwestern University in April 1981. The aim of the seminar was to bring together a small group of kindred spirits working on stochastic processes and to provide an informal atmosphere for them to discuss their current work. We plan to hold such a seminar once a year, with slight variations in emphasis to reflect the changing concerns and interests within the field. The invited participants in this year's seminar were J. AZEMA, R.M. BLUMENTHAL, R. CARMONA, K.L. CHUNG, R.K. GETOOR, J. JACOD, F. KNIGHT, S. OREY, A.O. PITTENGER, J. PITMAN, P. PROTTER, M.K. RAO, M. SHARPE, and J. WALSH. We thank them and other participants for the productive liveliness of the seminar. As mentioned above, the present volume is only a fragment of the work discussed at the seminar, the other papers having been already committed to otherpublications. The seminar was made possible through the enlightened support of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Grant No. 80-0252. We are grateful to them as well as the publisher, Birkhauser Boston, for their support and encouragement
