Multidimensional diffusion processes by
Daniel W Stroock(
Book
)
19 editions published between 1979 and 2006 in English and German and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the reviews: " ... Both the Markovprocess approach and the Itô approach ... have been immensely successful in diffusion theory. The StroockVaradhan book, developed from the historic 1969 papers by its authors, presents the martingaleproblem approach as a more powerful  and, in certain regards, more intrinsicmeans of studying the foundations of the subject. ... the authors make the uncompromising decision not "to proselytise by intimidating the reader with myriad examples demonstrating the full scope of the techniques", but rather to persuade the reader "with a careful treatment of just one problem to which they apply". ... Most of the main tools of stochasticprocesses theory are used, ..but it is the formidable combination of probability theory with analysis ... which is the core of the work. ... I have emphasized the great importance of the StroockVaradhan book. It contains a lot more than I have indicated; in particular, its many exercises conain much interesting material. For immediate confirmation of the subject?s sparkle, virtuosity, and depth, see ... McKean (?s 1969 book). The StroockVaradhan book proceeds on its inexorable way like a massive Bach fugue. ... But old J.S. can e something of knockout if his themes get hold of you. And his influence on what followed was 8you may say) substantial." David Williams in the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society

Large deviations and applications by

Book

25 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Many situations exist in which solutions to problems are represented as function space integrals. Such representations can be used to study the qualitative properties of the solutions and to evaluate them numerically using Monte Carlo methods. The emphasis in this book is on the behavior of solutions in special situations when certain parameters get large or small

Stochastic processes by
S. R. S Varadhan(
Book
)
25 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a brief introduction to stochastic processes studying certain elementary continuoustime processes. After a description of the Poisson process and related processes with independent increments as well as a brief look at Markov processes with a finite number of jumps, the author proceeds to introduce Brownian motion and to develop stochastic integrals and Ito's theory in the context of onedimensional diffusion processes. The book ends with a brief survey of the general theory of Markov processes." "The book is based on courses given by the author at the Courant Institute and can be used as a sequel to the author's successful book Probability Theory in this series."Jacket

Prokhorov and contemporary probability theory : in honor of Yuri V. Prokhorov by
Alʹbert Nikolaevich Shiri︠a︡ev(
)
10 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The role of Yuri Vasilyevich Prokhorov as a prominent mathematician and leading expert in the theory of probability is well known. Even early in his career he obtained substantial results on the validity of the strong law of large numbers and on the estimates (bounds) of the rates of convergence, some of which are the best possible. His findings on limit theorems in metric spaces and particularly functional limit theorems are of exceptional importance. Y.V. Prokhorov developed an original approach to the proof of functional limit theorems, based on the weak convergence of finite dimensional distributions and the condition of tightness of probability measures. The present volume commemorates the 80th birthday of Yuri Vasilyevich Prokhorov. It includes scientific contributions written by his colleagues, friends and pupils, who would like to express their deep respect and sincerest admiration for him and his scientific work

15 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents topics in probability theory covered during a firstyear graduate course given at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. The necessary background material in measure theory is developed, including the standard topics, such as extension theorem, construction of measures, integration, product spaces, RadonNikodym theorem, and conditional expectation. In the first part of the book, characteristic functions are introduced, followed by the study of weak convergence of probability distributions. Then both the weak and strong limit theorems for sums of independent rando

Large deviations by
S. R. S Varadhan(
)
6 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The theory of large deviations deals with rates at which probabilities of certain events decay as a natural parameter in the problem varies. This book, which is based on a graduate course on large deviations at the Courant Institute, focuses on three concrete sets of examples: (i) diffusions with small noise and the exit problem, (ii) large time behavior of Markov processes and their connection to the FeynmanKac formula and the related large deviation behavior of the number of distinct sites visited by a random walk, and (iii) interacting particle systems, their scaling limits, and large deviations from their expected limits. For the most part the examples are worked out in detail, and in the process the subject of large deviations is developed. The book will give the reader a flavor of how large deviation theory can help in problems that are not posed directly in terms of large deviations. The reader is assumed to have some familiarity with probability, Markov processes, and interacting particle systems
