Markov chains and mixing times by David Asher Levin( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an introduction to the modern approach to the theory of Markov chains. The main goal of this approach is to determine the rate of convergence of a Markov chain to the stationary distribution as a function of the size and geometry of the state space. The authors develop the key tools for estimating convergence times, including coupling, strong stationary times, and spectral methods. Whenever possible, probabilistic methods are emphasized. The book includes many examples and provides brief introductions to some central models of statistical mechanics. Also provided are accounts of r

Brownian motion by Peter Mörters( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This textbook offers a broad and deep exposition of Brownian motion. Extensively class tested, it leads the reader from the basics to the latest research in the area." "Starting with the construction of Brownian motion, the book then proceeds to sample path properties such as continuity and nowhere differentiability. Notions of fractal dimension are introduced early and are used throughout the book to describe fine properties of Brownian paths. The relation of Brownian motion and random walk is explored from several viewpoints, including a development of the theory of Brownian local times from random walk embeddings. Stochastic integration is introduced as a tool, and an accessible treatment of the potential theory of Brownian motion clears the path for an extensive treatment of intersections of Brownian paths. An investigation of exceptional points on the Brownian path and an appendix on SLE processes, by Oded Schramm and Wendelin Werner, lead directly to recent research themes."--Jacket
A power law of order 1/4 for critical mean field Swendsen-Wang dynamics by Yun Long( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Swendsen-Wang dynamics is a Markov chain widely used by physicists to sample from the Boltzmann-Gibbs distribution of the Ising model. Cooper, Dyer, Frieze and Rue proved that on the complete graph Kn the mixing time of the chain is at most O(nv) for all non-critical temperatures. In this paper we show that the mixing time is [Theta](1) in high temperatures, [Theta](logn) in low temperatures and [Theta](n1/4) at criticality. We also provide an upper bound of O(logn) for Swendsen-Wang dynamics for the q-state ferromagnetic Potts model on any tree of n vertices
Probability on trees and networks by Russell Lyons( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting around the late 1950s, several research communities began relating the geometry of graphs to stochastic processes on these graphs. This book, twenty years in the making, ties together research in the field, encompassing work on percolation, isoperimetric inequalities, eigenvalues, transition probabilities, and random walks. Written by two leading researchers, the text emphasizes intuition, while giving complete proofs and more than 850 exercises. Many recent developments, in which the authors have played a leading role, are discussed, including percolation on trees and Cayley graphs, uniform spanning forests, the mass-transport technique, and connections on random walks on graphs to embedding in Hilbert space. This state-of-the-art account of probability on networks will be indispensable for graduate students and researchers alike
Fractals in probability and analysis by Christopher J Bishop( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a mathematically rigorous introduction to fractals which emphasizes examples and fundamental ideas. Building up from basic techniques of geometric measure theory and probability, central topics such as Hausdorff dimension, self-similar sets and Brownian motion are introduced, as are more specialized topics, including Kakeya sets, capacity, percolation on trees and the traveling salesman theorem. The broad range of techniques presented enables key ideas to be highlighted, without the distraction of excessive technicalities. The authors incorporate some novel proofs which are simpler than those available elsewhere. Where possible, chapters are designed to be read independently so the book can be used to teach a variety of courses, with the clear structure offering students an accessible route into the topic

Zeros of Gaussian analytic functions and determinantal point processes( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book examines in some depth two important classes of point processes, determinantal processes and "Gaussian zeros", i.e., zeros of random analytic functions with Gaussian coefficients. These processes share a property of "point-repulsion", where distinct points are less likely to fall close to each other than in processes, such as the Poisson process, that arise from independent sampling. Nevertheless, the treatment in the book emphasizes the use of independence: for random power series, the independence of coefficients is key; for determinantal processes, the number of points in a domain is a sum of independent indicators, and this yields a satisfying explanation of the central limit theorem (CLT) for this point count. Another unifying theme of the book is invariance of considered point processes under natural transformation groups. The book strives for balance between general theory and concrete examples. On the one hand, it presents a primer on modern techniques on the interface of probability and analysis. On the other hand, a wealth of determinantal processes of intrinsic interest are analyzed; these arise from random spanning trees and eigenvalues of random matrices, as well as from special power series with determinantal zeros. The material in the book formed the basis of a graduate course given at the IAS-Park City Summer School in 2007; the only background knowledge assumed can be acquired in first-year graduate courses in analysis and probability."--Publisher's website

Brownian motion : fluctuations, dynamics, and applications by Robert M Mazo( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brownian motion is the incessant motion of small particles immersed in an ambient medium. It is due to fluctuations in the motion of the medium particles on the molecular scale. The name has been carried over to other fluctuation phenomena. This book treats the physical theory of Brownian motion. The extensive mathematical theory, which treats the subject as a subfield of the general theory of random processes, is touched on but not presented in any detail. Random or stochastic process theory and statistical mechanics are the primary tools. The first eight chapters treat the stochastic theory and some applications. The next six present the statistical mechanical point of view. Then follows chapters on applications to diffusion, noise, and polymers, followed by a treatment of the motion of interacting Brownian particles. The book ends with a final chapter treating simulation, fractals, and chaos
