Om Random Processes by Example
This volume first introduces the mathematical tools necessary for understanding and working with a broad class of applied stochastic models. The toolbox includes Gaussian processes, independently scattered measures such as Gaussian white noise and Poisson random measures, stochastic integrals, compound Poisson, infinitely divisible and stable distributions and processes.Next, it illustrates general concepts by handling a transparent but rich example of a “teletraffic model”. A minor tuning of a few parameters of the model leads to different workload regimes, including Wiener process, fractional Brownian motion and stable Lévy process. The simplicity of the dependence mechanism used in the model enables us to get a clear understanding of long and short range dependence phenomena. The model also shows how light or heavy distribution tails lead to continuous Gaussian processes or to processes with jumps in the limiting regime. Finally, in this volume, readers will find discussions on the multivariate extensions that admit a variety of completely different applied interpretations.The reader will quickly become familiar with key concepts that form a language for many major probabilistic models of real world phenomena but are often neglected in more traditional courses of stochastic processes.Contents:Preliminaries:Random Variables: A SummaryFrom Poisson to Stable VariablesLimit Theorems for Sums and Domains of AttractionRandom VectorsRandom Processes:Random Processes: Main ClassesExamples of Gaussian Random ProcessesRandom Measures and Stochastic IntegralsLimit Theorems for Poisson IntegralsLévy ProcessesSpectral RepresentationsConvergence of Random ProcessesTeletraffic Models:A Model of Service SystemLimit Theorems for the WorkloadMicropulse ModelSpacial ExtensionsReadership: Graduate students and researchers in probability & statistics.
