Most widely held works by Howard M Taylor
A first course in stochastic processes by Samuel Karlin( Book )
50 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,571 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 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,075 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 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

Markovian sequential replacement processes ( Book )
1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A sequential control process is a dynamic system which is observed periodically and classified into one of a number of possible states. After each observation one of a finite number of possible decisions is made. These decisions are the 'control;' they determine the chance laws of the system. A replacement process is a control process with an additional special action, called replacement, which instantaneously returns the system to some initial state. This report discusses replacement processes whose state space is a subset of a finite dimensional Euclidean space. The rule which minimizes the Total Expected Discounted Cost is known and is used to show the existence of a non-randomized stationary decision rule which minimizes the Average Cost per Unit Time. A relationship between the optimal rules under both criteria is given wherein the optimal average cost rule is the limit, in some sense, of a sequence of discounted cost rules which yields a functional equation characterizing the optimal average cost rule. Finally, some examples employing the theory are given. (Author)
