# Discrete stochastics (CD) Moeschlin, Otto

##### By: Moeschlin, Otto

##### Contributor(s): Grycko, Eugen | Poppinga, Carsten | Steinert, Frank

Material type: TextPublisher: Germany Springer 2003Description: With book and user's guide at Acc.no.155149Subject(s): Probability theory | Discrete occurence spaces | Measure theory | Stochastic processes | Mathematical optimization | Discrete-time systemsDDC classification: D000085 Summary: This electronic textbook (On CD) is based on courses on probability theory developed by O.Moeschlin. The aim is to describe the typical ways of thinking and the working methods of stochastics on an intermediate level. One problem in this context is that probability theory dealing with continuous basic spaces uses measure and integration theory to a high degree. This implies a considerable complication, which is hardly consistent, with the objective of an introduction. The way out taken here is to use a discrete basic space. The formulations and notations are kept in such a way that they can be extended in a straightforward way to the general theory. The text is accompanied by several exercises as well as solutions. This textbook comes on a fully linked CD-ROM together with fifteen so-called experiments, i.e. screen visualizations of complex notions and facts. To make reading easier the textbook is accompanied by a printed text. Written for: Students taking courses on stochastical topics in mathematics, science and economics System requirement IBM-compatible PC (at least Pentium 200 Mhz, optimal Pentium III or higher), 32 MB RAM, mouse, double speed CD-ROM drive, Windows 9x/ME/2000/XP, screen size 1280x1024, adequate browser such as "Internet Explorer".Item type | Current location | Collection | Call number | Status | Date due | Barcode |
