This book is about a recently developed class of strategies, known as the fence methods, which fits particularly well in non-conventional and complex model selection problems with practical considerations. The idea involves a procedure to isolate a subgroup of what are known as correct models, of which the optimal model is a member. This is accomplished by constructing a statistical fence, or barrier, to carefully eliminate incorrect models. Once the fence is constructed, the optimal model is selected from amongst those within the fence according to a criterion which can be made flexible. In particular, the criterion of optimality can incorporate consideration of practical interest, thus making model selection a real life practice.Furthermore, this book introduces a data-driven approach, called adaptive fence, which can be used in a wide range of problems involving determination of tuning parameters, or constants. Instead of relying on asymptotic theory, the fence focuses on finite-sample performance, and computation. Such features are particularly suitable to statistics in the new era.

The book is aimed at graduate students and researchers with basic knowledge of Probability and Integration Theory. It introduces classical inequalities in vector and functional spaces with applications to probability. It also develops new extensions of the analytical inequalities, with sharper bounds and generalizations to the sum or the supremum of random variables, to martingales and to transformed Brownian motions. The proofs of many new results are presented in great detail. Original tools are developed for spatial point processes and stochastic integration with respect to local martingales in the plane. This second edition covers properties of random variables and time continuous local martingales with a discontinuous predictable compensator, with exponential inequalities and new inequalities for their maximum variable and their p-variations. A chapter on stochastic calculus presents the exponential sub-martingales developed for stationary processes and their properties. Another chapter devoted itself to the renewal theory of processes and to semi-Markovian processes, branching processes and shock processes. The Chapman–Kolmogorov equations for strong semi-Markovian processes provide equations for their hitting times in a functional setting which extends the exponential properties of the Markovian processes.

This book begins with a historical essay entitled “Will the Sun Rise Again?” and ends with a general address entitled “Mathematics and Applications”. The articles cover an interesting range of topics: combinatoric probabilities, classical limit theorems, Markov chains and processes, potential theory, Brownian motion, Schrödinger-Feynman problems, etc. They include many addresses presented at international conferences and special seminars, as well as memorials to and reminiscences of prominent contemporary mathematicians and reviews of their works. Rare old photos of many of them enliven the book.

This unique volume presents a collection of the extensive journal publications written by Kai Lai Chung over a span of 70-odd years. It was produced to celebrate his 90th birthday. The selection is only a subset of the many contributions that he made throughout his prolific career. Another volume, Chance and Choice, published by World Scientific in 2004, contains yet another subset, with four articles in common with this volume. Kai Lai Chung's research contributions have had a major influence on several areas in probability. Among his most significant works are those related to sums of independent random variables, Markov chains, time reversal of Markov processes, probabilistic potential theory, Brownian excursions, and gauge theorems for the Schr”dinger equation.As Kai Lai Chung's contributions spawned critical new developments, this volume also contains retrospective and perspective views provided by collaborators and other authors who themselves advanced the areas of probability and mathematics.

Stochastic dynamical systems and stochastic analysis are of great interests not only to mathematicians but also scientists in other areas. Stochastic dynamical systems tools for modeling and simulation are highly demanded in investigating complex phenomena in, for example, environmental and geophysical sciences, materials science, life sciences, physical and chemical sciences, finance and economics. The volume reflects an essentially timely and interesting subject and offers reviews on the recent and new developments in stochastic dynamics and stochastic analysis, and also some possible future research directions. Presenting a dozen chapters of survey papers and research by leading experts in the subject, the volume is written with a wide audience in mind ranging from graduate students, junior researchers to professionals of other specializations who are interested in the subject.

This volume first introduces the mathematical tools necessary for understanding and working with a broad class of applied stochastic models. The toolbox includes Gaussian processes, independently scattered measures such as Gaussian white noise and Poisson random measures, stochastic integrals, compound Poisson, infinitely divisible and stable distributions and processes. Next, it illustrates general concepts by handling a transparent but rich example of a “teletraffic model”. A minor tuning of a few parameters of the model leads to different workload regimes, including Wiener process, fractional Brownian motion and stable Lévy process. The simplicity of the dependence mechanism used in the model enables us to get a clear understanding of long and short range dependence phenomena. The model also shows how light or heavy distribution tails lead to continuous Gaussian processes or to processes with jumps in the limiting regime. Finally, in this volume, readers will find discussions on the multivariate extensions that admit a variety of completely different applied interpretations. The reader will quickly become familiar with key concepts that form a language for many major probabilistic models of real world phenomena but are often neglected in more traditional courses of stochastic processes. Contents:Preliminaries:Random Variables: A SummaryFrom Poisson to Stable VariablesLimit Theorems for Sums and Domains of AttractionRandom VectorsRandom Processes:Random Processes: Main ClassesExamples of Gaussian Random ProcessesRandom Measures and Stochastic IntegralsLimit Theorems for Poisson IntegralsLévy ProcessesSpectral RepresentationsConvergence of Random ProcessesTeletraffic Models:A Model of Service SystemLimit Theorems for the WorkloadMicropulse ModelSpacial Extensions Readership: Graduate students and researchers in probability & statistics. Keywords:Fractional Brownian Motion;Gaussian Process;Independently Scattered Measure;Lévy Process;Limit Theorem;Long Range Dependence;Micropulse Model;Poisson Random Measure;Random Process;Stable Process;Stochastic Process;Teletraffic Model;White Noise;Wiener ProcessKey Features:A thorough choice of self-contained material packed in a small volume enabling the reader to focus on really important issues and reach the frontline of research in a pretty short timeMain examples explaining the theory originating from the modern research fieldHandling full scale examples in an in-depth manner (unusual for a textbook) brings in a touch of research work in an otherwise routine learning methodReviews: “This is a nicely written book on stochastic processes from a very special perspective on the topic, inspired by the limiting behavior of a teletraffic model. The richness of this model needs to introduce many concepts of stochastic process theory which are not mainstream in the existing literature. Thus the book appears as a fresh and appealing addition. Interested researchers in pure and applied mathematics can find a comprehensive presentation of the topic for the first time in book format.” Mathematical Reviews Clippings

Masatoshi Fukushima is one of the most influential probabilists of our times. His fundamental work on Dirichlet forms and Markov processes made Hilbert space methods a tool in stochastic analysis and by this he opened the way to several new developments. His impact on a new generation of probabilists can hardly be overstated. These Selecta collect 25 of Fukushima's seminal articles published between 1967 and 2007.
