About this Unit
This is an introduction to stochastic processes for students familiar with elementary probability. This unit presents the theory and application of time-dependent processes. In addition the unit applies some methods of probability and stochastic processes to real-world problems. Topics include: Markov chains, Poisson processes, continuous-time Markov chains, branching processes, birth and death processes, queuing systems, and stationary processes.
