Most widely held works by Howard M Taylor
A first course in stochastic processes by Samuel Karlin( file )
40 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,556 libraries worldwide
The purpose, level, and style of this new edition conform to the tenets set forth in the original preface. The authors continue with their tack of developing simultaneously theory and applications, intertwined so that they refurbish and elucidate each other. The authors have made three main kinds of changes. First, they have enlarged on the topics treated in the first edition. Second, they have added many exercises and problems at the end of each chapter. Third, and most important, they have supplied, in new chapters, broad introductory discussions of several classes of stochastic processes not dealt with in the first edition, notably martingales, renewal and fluctuation phenomena associated with random sums, stationary stochastic processes, and diffusion theory
An introduction to stochastic modeling by Howard M Taylor( Book )
49 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,078 libraries worldwide
"Serving as the foundation for a one-semester course in stochastic processes for students familiar with elementary probability theory and calculus, Introduction to Stochastic Modeling, Third Edition, bridges the gap between basic probability and an intermediate level course in stochastic processes. The objectives of the text are to introduce students to the standard concepts and methods of stochastic modeling, to illustrate the rich diversity of applications of stochastic processes in the applied sciences, and to provide exercises in the application of simple stochastic analysis to realistic problems."--Publisher description (LoC)
A first course in Stochastic processes : solutions to problems by Samuel Karlin( Book )
11 editions published between 1975 and 1991 in English and held by 43 libraries worldwide
Elements of geometry by Euclid( Book )
4 editions published between 1889 and 1895 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
Réédition du livre de géométrie par excellence. On a opté pour une traduction libre s'attachant plus à rendre l'esprit que la lettre du texte, ce qui rend la lecture plus aisée et plus agréable. Le texte grec est celui établi par Heiberg, mais sans son imposant appareil critique. La dernière édition française complète remontait au début du XIXe siècle
Principles of soil-plant interrelationships by Victor V Rendig( Book )
5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
Limitations to efficient water use in crop production by H. M Taylor( Book )
3 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 libraries worldwide
A general framework for computing block accesses by Bradley T Vander Zanden( Book )
2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
A physical database system design should take account of skewed block access distributions, nonuniformly distributed attribute domains, and dependent attributes. In this paper we derive general formulas for the number of blocks accessed under these assumptions by considering a class of related occupancy problems. We then proceed to develop robust and accurate approximations for these formulas. We investigate three clases of approximation methods, respectively based on generating functions, Taylor series expansions, and majorization. These approximations are as simple to use and far more accurate than the cost estimate formulas generated by making independence and uniformity assumptions

The Reliability of Load Sharing Systems ( Book )
2 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The optimal replacement theory for fault tolerant load sharing systems was developed under the support of the grant. As components fail, the system deteriorates. Where failed components cannot be replaced individually, an algorithm was found that determines the optimal policy for replacing the entire system. Load sharing systems arise as models for the failure process of certain composite materials such as Kevlar fibers embedded in an epoxy matrix, or for certain semi-crystalline polymer fibers themselves. Because of the astronomical numbers of components in these models, their analysis is quite difficult. A simple model that describes the failure process but is far more easily understood and manipulated, has been developed and its accuracy compared with that of a more complex and less well understood model. The agreement is excellent. Because of its simplicity, the new model is more easily extended to cover a wider variety of load sharing systems

An introduction to stochastic modeling by Mark A Pinsky( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Serving as the foundation for a one-semester course in stochastic processes for students familiar with elementary probability theory and calculus, Introduction to Stochastic Modeling, 4e, bridges the gap between basic probability and an intermediate level course in stochastic processes. The objectives of the text are to introduce students to the standard concepts and methods of stochastic modeling, to illustrate the rich diversity of applications of stochastic processes in the applied sciences, and to provide exercises in the application of simple stochastic analysis to realistic problems. & nb
Statistical control of a bernoulli process ( Book )
1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The optimal statistical control of a simple production process which has only two underlying states, good and bad, is studied. The produced items are classified as good or defective, a cost being associated with each defective item produced. A cost is also charged for repairing the process, which has the effect of returning the process to the good state. Other than immediately after repair, the process state is assumed unknown. One seeks a statistical control rule which, based on the quality history of produced items, tells when to repair the machine. A feasible means of computing the control rule which minimizes the average cost per unit time is given. The nature of the solution is such that once tables of operating characteristics have been prepared, the solutions to a wide variety of problems may be had through slight additional hand calculations. The optimal rule is shown to be relatively insensitive to errors in estimating the model parameters. A means of checking, over a long period of time, whether or not estimates are correct has also been suggested. (Author)
