Description for Markov Processes from K. Itô´s Perspective (AM-155) Paperback. Offers an account of Kiyosi Ito's program. This book offers an account of integral curves on the space of probability measures. It provides a systematic development of Ito's theory of stochastic integration: first for Brownian motion and then for continuous martingales. Series: Annals of Mathematics Studies. Num Pages: 288 pages, black & white illustrations. BIC Classification: PBK; PBM; PBWL. Category: (P) Professional & Vocational; (U) Tertiary Education (US: College). Dimension: 229 x 152 x 15.

Kiyosi Ito's greatest contribution to probability theory may be his introduction of stochastic differential equations to explain the Kolmogorov-Feller theory of Markov processes. Starting with the geometric ideas that guided him, this book gives an account of Ito's program. The modern theory of Markov processes was initiated by A. N. Kolmogorov. However, Kolmogorov's approach was too analytic to reveal the probabilistic foundations on which it rests. In particular, it hides the central role played by the simplest Markov processes: those with independent, identically distributed increments. To remedy this defect, Ito interpreted Kolmogorov's famous forward equation as an equation that describes ... Read more
