Stochastic processes by
Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
32 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A nonmeasure theoretic introduction to stochastic processes. Considers its diverse range of applications and provides readers with probabilistic intuition and insight in thinking about problems. This revised edition contains additional material on compound Poisson random variables including an identity which can be used to efficiently compute moments; a new chapter on Poisson approximations; and coverage of the mean time spent in transient states as well as examples relating to the Gibb's sampler, the Metropolis algorithm and mean cover time in star graphs. Numerous exercises and problems have been added throughout the text."Publisher's description

Introduction to probability models by
Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
25 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ross's classic bestseller, Introduction to Probability Models, has been used extensively by professors as the primary text for a first undergraduate course in applied probability. It provides an Introduction to elementary probability theory and stochastic processes, and shows how probability theory can be applied to the study of phenomena in fields such as engineering, computer science, management science, the physical and social sciences, and operations research. With the addition of several new sections relating to actuaries, this text is highly recommended by the Society of Actuaries. The tenth edition contains several sections covered in the new exams."Jacket
