Elements of Stochastic Processes

Stoch Processes

Elements of Stochastic Processes: A Computational Approach by Professor C. Douglas Howard, the coordinator of the Financial Mathematics major at Baruch College, City University of New York, and a faculty member in the Baruch MFE Program, was published in November 2017.

This is an advanced undergraduate text on the fundamental probabilistic models that arise in many diverse applications. The presentation of these models is “computational” in the sense that it is easily adapted to computer-based Monte Carlo simulation. A guiding principle was to be rigorous without the use of measure theory.

Elements of Stochastic Processes: A Computational Approach is available for $44.50, a 10% discount off the list price, for all orders placed before February 15, 2018.
