Introduction to stochastic dynamic programming by
Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
18 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introduction to Stochastic Dynamic Programming presents the basic theory and examines the scope of applications of stochastic dynamic programming. The book begins with a chapter on various finitestage models, illustrating the wide range of applications of stochastic dynamic programming. Subsequent chapters study infinitestage models: discounting future returns, minimizing nonnegative costs, maximizing nonnegative returns, and maximizing the longrun average return. Each of these chapters first considers whether an optimal policy need existproviding counterexamples where appropriateand the

An introduction to mathematical finance : options and other topics by
Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
17 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This elementary introduction to the theory of options pricing presents the BlackScholes theory of options as well as such general topics in finance as the time value of money, rate of return of an investment cashflow sequence, utility functions and expected utility maximization, mean variance analysis, optimal portfolio selection, and the capital assets pricing model." "The author assumes no prior knowledge of probability and presents all the necessary preliminary material simply and clearly in chapters on probability, normal random variables, and the geometric Brownian motion model that underlies the BlackScholes theory. This book will appeal to professional traders as well as undergraduates studying the basics of finance."Jacket

Introductory statistics by
Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
47 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this 3rd edition revised text, master expositor Sheldon Ross has produced a unique work in introductory statistics. The text's main merits are the clarity of presentation, contemporary examples and applications from diverse areas, and an explanation of intuition and ideas behind the statistical methods. Concepts are motivated, illustrated and explained in a way that attempts to increase one's intuition. To quote from the preface, "It is only when a student develops a feel or intuition for statistics that she or he is really on the path toward making sense of data." Ross achieves this goal

Stochastic processes by
Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
6 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 434 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
)
28 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and held by 365 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

Simulation by
Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
14 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In formulating a stochastic model to describe a real phenomenon, it used to be that one compromised between choosing a model that is a realistic replica of the actual situation and choosing one whose mathematical analysis is tractable. That is, there did not seem to be any payoff in choosing a model that faithfully conformed to the phenomenon under study if it were not possible to mathematically analyze that model. Similar considerations have led to the concentration on asymptotic or steadystate results as opposed to the more useful ones on transient time. However, the relatively recent advent of fast and inexpensive computational power has opened up another approachnamely, to try to model the phenomenon as faithfully as possible and then to rely on a simulation study to analyze it"

Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
10 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This textbook on the basics of option pricing is accessible to readers with limited mathematical training. It is for both professional traders and undergraduates studying the basics of finance. Assuming no prior knowledge of probability, Sheldon M. Ross offers clear, simple explanations of arbitrage, the BlackScholes option pricing formula, and other topics such as utility functions, optimal portfolio selections, and the capital assets pricing model. Among the many new features of this third edition are new chapters on Brownian motion and geometric Brownian motion, stochastic order relations, and stochastic dynamic programming, along with expanded sets of exercises and references for all the chapters"
