Percolation by Geoffrey Grimmett( Book )

38 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mathematical theory of percolation has acquired something of a reputation for inaccessibility. In addition, several recent advances of substance have tossed the historical order of discovery on its head. It is time to re-examine the subject afresh, in light of recent discoveries. This book does just that. It contains a definitive and coherent account of the subject, in an orderly way accessible to the non-specialist, including the shortest and neatest proofs currently known. In order to maximize accessibility, it concentrates on bond percolation on the d-dimensional cubic lattice where d>2. The subcritical and supercritical phases are described in considerable detail; the recent proofs of the uniqueness of critical points and the infinite open cluster are used extensively. There are two chapters devoted to a lucid account of the physical theory of scaling the renormalization in the context of percolation. There is a chapter dealing with the case of two dimensions, including a rather short proof of the famous exact calculation of + for the critical probability. The book terminates with a collection of pencil sketches of related areas of mathematics and physics
Probability : an introduction by Geoffrey Grimmett( Book )

44 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Probability is an area of mathematics of tremendous contemporary importance across all aspects of human endeavour. This book is a compact account of the basic features of probability and random processes at the level of first and second year mathematics undergraduates and Masters' students in cognate fields. It is suitable for a first course in probability, plus a follow-up course in random processes including Markov chains. A special feature is the authors' attention to rigorous mathematics: not everything is rigorous, but the need for rigour is explained at difficult junctures. The text is en

The random-cluster model by Geoffrey Grimmett( Book )

26 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and German and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The random-cluster model has emerged in recent years as a key tool in the mathematical study of ferromagnetism. It may be viewed as an extension of percolation to include Ising and Potts models, and its analysis is a mix of arguments from probability and geometry. This systematic study includes accounts of the subcritical and supercritical phases, together with clear statements of important open problems. There is an extensive treatment of the first-order (discontinuous) phase transition, as well as a chapter devoted to applications of the random-cluster method to other models of statistical physics."--Jacket

Combinatorics, complexity, and chance : a tribute to Dominic Welsh by Geoffrey Grimmett( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Dominic Welsh has made significant contributions to the fields of combinatorics and discrete probability, including matroids, complexity, and percolation. This volume summarises and reviews the consistent themes from his work through a series of articles written by renowned experts
Probability and phase transition by Geoffrey Grimmett( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume describes the current state of knowledge of random spatial processes, particularly those arising in physics. The emphasis is on survey articles which describe areas of current interest to probabilists and physicists working on the probability theory of phase transition. Special attention is given to topics deserving further research. The principal contributions by leading researchers concern the mathematical theory of random walk, interacting particle systems, percolation, Ising and Potts models, spin glasses, cellular automata, quantum spin systems, and metastability. The level of presentation and review is particularly suitable for postgraduate and postdoctoral workers in mathematics and physics, and for advanced specialists in the probability theory of spatial disorder and phase transition

Optimal stopping rules by Alʹbert Nikolaevich Shiri︠a︡ev( )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although three decades have passed since first publication of this book reprinted now as a result of popular demand, the content remains up-to-date and interesting for many researchers as is shown by the many references to it in current publications. The "ground floor" of Optimal Stopping Theory was constructed by A. Wald in his sequential analysis in connection with the testing of statistical hypotheses by non-traditional (sequential) methods. It was later discovered that these methods have, in idea, a close connection to the general theory of stochastic optimization for random processes. The area of application of the Optimal Stopping Theory is very broad. It is sufficient at this point to emphasise that its methods are well tailored to the study of American ( -type) options (in mathematics of finance and financial engineering), where a buyer has the freedom to exercise an option at any stopping time. In this book, the general theory of the construction of optimal stopping policies is developed for the case of Markov processes in discrete and continuous time. One chapter is devoted specially to the applications that address problems of the testing of statistical hypotheses, and quickest detection of the time of change of the probability characteristics of the observable processes. The author, A.N. Shiryaev, is one of the leading experts of the field and gives an authoritative treatment of a subject that, 30 years after original publication of this book, is proving increasingly important
Fundamentals of stochastic filtering by Alan Bain( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The objective of stochastic filtering is to determine the best estimate for the state of a stochastic dynamical system from partial observations. The solution of this problem in the linear case is the well known Kalman-Bucy filter which has found widespread practical application. The purpose of this book is to provide a rigorous mathematical treatment of the non-linear stochastic filtering problem using modern methods. Particular emphasis is placed on the theoretical analysis of numerical methods for the solution of the filtering problem via particle methods." "The book should provide sufficient background to enable study of the recent literature. While no prior knowledge of stochastic filtering is required, readers are assumed to be familiar with measure theory, probability theory and the basics of stochastic processes. Most of the technical results that are required are stated and proved in the appendices." "The book is intended as a reference for graduate students and researchers interested in the field. It is also suitable for use as a text for a graduate level course on stochastic filtering. Suitable exercises and solutions are included."--Jacket

Martingale Methods in Financial Modelling. Stochastic Modelling and Applied Probability, Volume 36( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 2nd edition some sections of Part I are omitted for better readability, and a brand new chapter is devoted to volatility risk. As a consequence, hedging of plain-vanilla options and valuation of exotic options are no longer limited to the Black-Scholes framework with constant volatility. The theme of stochastic volatility also reappears systematically in the second part of the book, which has been revised fundamentally, presenting much more detailed analyses of the various interest-rate models available: the authors' perspective throughout is that the choice of a model should be based on the reality of how a particular sector of the financial market functions, never neglecting to examine liquid primary and derivative assets and identifying the sources of trading risk associated. This long-awaited new edition of an outstandingly successful, well-established book, concentrating on the most pertinent and widely accepted modelling approaches, provides the reader with a text focused on practical rather than theoretical aspects of financial modelling

Mathematics of multiscale materials by Kenneth M Golden( )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Polycrystalline metals, porous rocks, colloidal suspensions, epitaxial thin films, gels, foams, granular aggregates, sea ice, shape-memory metals, magnetic materials, and electro-rheological fluids are all examples of materials where an understanding of the mathematics on the different length scales is a key to interpreting their physical behavior. In their analysis of these media, scientists coming from a number of disciplines have encountered similar mathematical problems, yet it is rare for researchers in the various fields to meet. The 1995-1996 program at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications was devoted to Mathematical Methods in Material Science, and was attended by materials scientists, physicists, geologists, chemists engineers, and mathematicians. The present volume contains chapters which have emerged from four of the workshops held during the year, focusing on the following areas: Disordered Materials; Interfaces and Thin Films; Mechanical Response of Materials from Angstroms to Meters; and Phase Transformation, Composite Materials and Microstructure. The scales treated in these workshops ranged from the atomic to the microstructural to the macroscopic, the microstructures from ordered to random, and the treatments from "purely" theoretical to the highly applied. Taken together, these works form a compelling and broad account of many aspects of the science of multiscale materials, and will hopefully inspire research across the self-imposed barriers of twentieth century science
