Stochastic Population Processes

Analysis, Approximations, Simulations

Eric Renshaw

  • Strong problem-solving focus
  • At a mathematical level accessible to a wide range of researchers and practitioners
  • Examples from ecological and physical applications
  • Techniques easily adapted to problems in engineering, chemistry and finance
  • Basic analytical tools are explained through a suite of stochastic processes with relatively simple closed-form solutions
  • Provides a toolbox to select specific analytic and computational techniques
  • Techniques do not rely on closed-form solutions
  • A basis for novel undergraduate and postgraduate courses in applied probability
