This book is an integrated work published in two volumes. The first volume treats the basic Markov process and its variants; the second, semi-Markov and decision processes. Its intent is to equip readers to formulate, analyze, and evaluate simple and advanced Markov models of systems, ranging from genetics to space engineering to marketing. The author is Professor of Management Science and Engineering at Stanfordnbsp;University. 1971 edition.
