About this book

The objective of this volume is to highlight through a collection of chap­ ters some of the recent research works in applied prob ability, specifically stochastic modeling and optimization. The volume is organized loosely into four parts. The first part is a col­ lection of several basic methodologies: singularly perturbed Markov chains (Chapter 1), and related applications in stochastic optimal control (Chapter 2); stochastic approximation, emphasizing convergence properties (Chapter 3); a performance-potential based approach to Markov decision program­ ming (Chapter 4); and interior-point techniques (homogeneous self-dual embedding and central path following) applied to stochastic programming (Chapter 5). The three chapters in the second part are concerned with queueing the­ ory. Chapters 6 and 7 both study processing networks - a general dass of queueing networks - focusing, respectively, on limit theorems in the form of strong approximation, and the issue of stability via connections to re­ lated fluid models. The subject of Chapter 8 is performance asymptotics via large deviations theory, when the input process to a queueing system exhibits long-range dependence, modeled as fractional Brownian motion.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The Workshop Stochastic Models and Optimization … in May 2001, forms the basis of the present volume. 14 papers from about 60 presentations at the workshop were selected and thoroughly revised making self-contained chapters of a book for a broad audience. It highlighted some recent advances in applied probability achieved mainly by scientists with Chinese background. … The book seems to be very suitable for seminar studies at the graduate level." (Hans-Joachim Girlich, OR News, 25, November 2005)
