Statistical control of a Bernoulli process by Howard M Taylor( Book )
2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 3 libraries 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)
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. New to this edition: Realistic applications from a variety of disciplines integrated throughout the text, including more biological applicationsPlentiful, completely updated problemsCompletely updated and reorganized end-of-chapter exercise sets, 250 exercises with answersNew chapters of stochastic differential equations and Brownian motion and related processesAdditional sections on Martingale and Poisson process . Realistic applications from a variety of disciplines integrated throughout the text. . Extensive end of chapter exercises sets, 250 with answers . Chapter 1-9 of the new edition are identical to the previous edition . New! Chapter 10 - Random Evolutions . New! Chapter 11- Characteristic functions and Their Applications
