Point processes and random measures find wide applicability in telecommunications, earthquakes, image analysis, spatial point patterns, and stereology, to name but a few areas. There are abundant examples whose purpose is both didactic and to illustrate further applications of the ideas and models that are the main substance of the text. Volume I contains the introductory chapters from the first edition together with an account of basic models, second order theory, and an informal account of prediction, with the aim of making the material accessible to readers primarily interested in models and applications. . The present edition of the book addresses that need quite successfully. There was a genuine need for a single source that would contain a survey of the general theory of Point Process accessible to beginning graduate students and researchers in the field but at the same time would include some of the more recent - though relatively advanced and technically difficult - developments in the area.

About this Item: Springer-Verlag New York Inc. Pages and cover are clean and intact. Point processes and random measures find wide applicability in telecommunications, earthquakes, image analysis, spatial point patterns, and stereology, to name but a few areas. Cox, Short Book Reviews, Vol. Fully revised and updated by the authors who have reworked their 1988 first edition, it brings together the basic theory of random measures and point processes in a unified setting and continues with the more theoretical topics of the first edition: limit theorems, ergodic theory, Palm theory, and evolutionary behaviour via martingales and conditional intensity. The very substantial new material in this second volume includes expanded discussions of marked point processes, convergence to equilibrium, and the structure of spatial point processes.

Volume One contains the introductory chapters from the first edition, together with an informal treatment of some of the later material intended to make it more accessible to readers primarily interested in models and applications. There was a genuine need for a single source that would contain a survey of the general theory of Point Process accessible to beginning graduate students and researchers in the field but at the same time would include some of the more recent - though relatively advanced and technically difficult - developments in the area. Volume Two returns to the general theory, with additional material on marked and spatial processes. The present edition of the book addresses that need quite successfully. From United Kingdom to U.

The very substantial new material in this second volume includes expanded discussions of marked point processes, convergence to equilibrium, and the structure of spatial point processes. David Vere-Jones is an Emeritus Professor at Victoria University of Wellington, widely known for his contributions to Markov chains, point processes, applications in seismology, and statistical education. The authors have made a major reshaping of their work in their first edition of 1988 and now present their Introduction to the Theory of Point Processes in two volumes with sub-titles Elementary Theory and Models and General Theory and Structure. Volume One contains the introductory chapters from the first edition, together with an informal treatment of some of the later material intended to make it more accessible to readers primarily interested in models and applications. The very substantial new material in this second volume includes expanded discussions of marked point processes, convergence to equilibrium, and the structure of spatial point processes.

In particular, we argue against the traditional use of global Lipschitz conditions and certain common growth restrictions. This is the second volume of the reworked second edition of a key work on Point Process Theory. Fully updated and reworked Volume I: Elementary Theory and Methods. The main complication is that the natural path-wise representation is generated by a counting measure with an intensity that depends nonlinearly on the state.

May show signs of minor shelf wear and contain limited notes and highlighting. Volume I contains the introductory chapters from the first edition together with an account of basic models, second order theory, and an informal account of prediction, with the aim of making the material accessible to readers primarily interested in models and applications. This is the second volume of the reworked second edition of a key work on Point Process Theory. The necessary mathematical background is reviewed in appendices located in Volume One. Daley Author , An Introduction to the Theory of Point Processes.

The main new material in this volume relates to marked point processes and to processes evolving in time, where the conditional intensity methodology provides a basis for model building, inference, and prediction. The first one is concentrated on introductory material and models, the second one on structure and general theory. The main new material in this volume relates to marked point processes and to processes evolving in time, where the conditional intensity methodology provides a basis for model building, inference, and prediction.
