Measure theory and probability theory by Krishna B Athreya( )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a graduate level textbook on measure theory and probability theory. The book can be used as a text for a two semester sequence of courses in measure theory and probability theory, with an option to include supplemental material on stochastic processes and special topics. It is intended primarily for first year Ph. D. students in mathematics and statistics although mathematically advanced students from engineering and economics would also find the book useful. Prerequisites are kept to the minimal level of an understanding of basic real analysis concepts such as limits, continuity, differentiability, Riemann integration, and convergence of sequences and series. A review of this material is included in the appendix. The book starts with an informal introduction that provides some heuristics into the abstract concepts of measure and integration theory, which are then rigorously developed. The first part of the book can be used for a standard real analysis course for both mathematics and statistics Ph. D. students as it provides full coverage of topics such as the construction of Lebesgue-Stieltjes measures on real line and Euclidean spaces, the basic convergence theorems, L^p spaces, signed measures, Radon-Nikodym theorem, Lebesgue's decomposition theorem and the fundamental theorem of Lebesgue integration on R, product spaces and product measures, and Fubini-Tonelli theorems. It also provides an elementary introduction to Banach and Hilbert spaces, convolutions, Fourier series and Fourier and Plancherel transforms. Thus part I would be particularly useful for students in a typical Statistics Ph. D. program if a separate course on real analysis is not a standard requirement. Part II (chapters 6-13) provides full coverage of standard graduate level probability theory. It starts with Kolmogorov's probability model and Kolmogorov's existence theorem. It then treats thoroughly the laws of large numbers including renewal theory and ergodic theorems with applications and then weak convergence of probability distributions, characteristic functions, the Levy-Cramer continuity theorem and the central limit theorem as well as stable laws. It ends with conditional expectations and conditional probability, and an introduction to the theory of discrete time martingales. Part III (chapters 14-18) provides a modest coverage of discrete time Markov chains with countable and general state spaces, MCMC, continuous time discrete space jump Markov processes, Brownian motion, mixing sequences, bootstrap methods, and branching processes. It could be used for a topics/seminar course or as an introduction to stochastic processes."--Publisher's website

Probability, statistics, and mathematics : papers in honor of Samuel Karlin by Samuel Karlin( Book )

8 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Probability, Statistics, and Mathematics: Papers in Honor of Samuel Karlin is a collection of papers dealing with probability, statistics, and mathematics. Conceived in honor of Polish-born mathematician Samuel Karlin, the book covers a wide array of topics, from the second-order moments of a stationary Markov chain to the exponentiality of the local time at hitting times for reflecting diffusions. Smoothed limit theorems for equilibrium processes are also discussed.<br><br>Comprised of 24 chapters, this book begins with an introduction to the second-order moments of a stationary Markov chain
Classical and modern branching processes by Krishna B Athreya( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This IMA Volume in Mathematics and its Applications CLASSICAL AND MODERN BRANCHING PROCESSES is based on the proceedings with the same title and was an integral part of the 1993-94 IMA program on "Emerging Applications of Probability." We would like to thank Krishna B. Athreya and Peter J agers for their hard work in organizing this meeting and in editing the proceedings. We also take this opportunity to thank the National Science Foundation, the Army Research Office, and the National Security Agency, whose financial support made this workshop possible. A vner Friedman Robert Gulliver v PREFACE The IMA workshop on Classical and Modern Branching Processes was held during June 13-171994 as part of the IMA year on Emerging Appli cations of Probability. The organizers of the year long program identified branching processes as one of the active areas in which a workshop should be held. Krish na B. Athreya and Peter Jagers were asked to organize this. The topics covered by the workshop could broadly be divided into the following areas: 1. Tree structures and branching processes; 2. Branching random walks; 3. Measure valued branching processes; 4. Branching with dependence; 5. Large deviations in branching processes; 6. Classical branching processes

On the equivalence of conditions on a branching process in continuous time and on its offspring distribution by Krishna B Athreya( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper shows under very general conditions on a convex functions phi E phi(x(t)) <infinity if and only if Summation over j of (phi(j)p sub j) <infinity where X(t) is a continuous time branching (Markov or age dependent) process with offspring generating function h(z) = Summation from j=0 to j = infinity of ((p sub j) (z superscript j)).

On the supercritical one dimensional age dependent branching processes by Krishna B Athreya( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For an age dependent branching process (Z(t);t> or = 0) with mean function m(t) we show Z(t)/(m(t)) converges in distribution to a nondegenerate limit law if and only if the sum of (j log j(p sub j) <infinity) where (p sub j) is the offspring distribution
A note on a functional equation arising in Galton-Watson branching processes by Krishna B Athreya( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The functional equation phi(mu) = h(phi(u)) where h(s) = the summation from j=o to infinity of p subj S supj is a p.g.f. with 1<m=h primed (1- ) <infinity and phi(u) = the integral from o to infinity of e to the ( -ut) power dF(t) where F(t) is a non-decreasing right continuous function with F(0- ) = 0 and F(+ infinity) = 1 arises in Galton-Watson process in a natural way. One proves here that for any p>or= 0, the integral from o to infinity of t/logt/supp dF(t)<infinity if and only if the summation from j=2 to infinity of j((log j) sup(p+1))(p subj)<infinity. This unifies several results in the literature on supercritical Galton-Watson process. One generalizes this to an age dependent branching process case as well. (Author)
