Measures, Integrals and Martingales

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Measures, Integrals and Martingales by René L. Schilling Book Summary:

This book, first published in 2005, introduces measure and integration theory as it is needed in many parts of analysis and probability theory. The basic theory - measures, integrals, convergence theorems, Lp-spaces and multiple integrals - is explored in the first part of the book. The second part then uses the notion of martingales to develop the theory further, covering topics such as Jacobi's generalized transformation Theorem, the Radon-Nikodym theorem, Hardy-Littlewood maximal functions or general Fourier series. Undergraduate calculus and an introductory course on rigorous analysis are the only essential prerequisites, making this text suitable for both lecture courses and for self-study. Numerous illustrations and exercises are included and these are not merely drill problems but are there to consolidate what has already been learnt and to discover variants, sideways and extensions to the main material. Hints and solutions can be found on the author's website, which can be reached from

Probability with Martingales

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Probability with Martingales by David Williams Book Summary:

Probability theory is nowadays applied in a huge variety of fields including physics, engineering, biology, economics and the social sciences. This book is a modern, lively and rigorous account which has Doob's theory of martingales in discrete time as its main theme. It proves important results such as Kolmogorov's Strong Law of Large Numbers and the Three-Series Theorem by martingale techniques, and the Central Limit Theorem via the use of characteristic functions. A distinguishing feature is its determination to keep the probability flowing at a nice tempo. It achieves this by being selective rather than encyclopaedic, presenting only what is essential to understand the fundamentals; and it assumes certain key results from measure theory in the main text. These measure-theoretic results are proved in full in appendices, so that the book is completely self-contained. The book is written for students, not for researchers, and has evolved through several years of class testing. Exercises play a vital rôle. Interesting and challenging problems, some with hints, consolidate what has already been learnt, and provide motivation to discover more of the subject than can be covered in a single introduction.

Change of Time and Change of Measure

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Change of Time and Change of Measure by Ole E Barndorff-Nielsen,Albert Shiryaev Book Summary:

Change of Time and Change of Measure provides a comprehensive account of two topics that are of particular significance in both theoretical and applied stochastics: random change of time and change of probability law. Random change of time is key to understanding the nature of various stochastic processes, and gives rise to interesting mathematical results and insights of importance for the modeling and interpretation of empirically observed dynamic processes. Change of probability law is a technique for solving central questions in mathematical finance, and also has a considerable role in insurance mathematics, large deviation theory, and other fields. The book comprehensively collects and integrates results from a number of scattered sources in the literature and discusses the importance of the results relative to the existing literature, particularly with regard to mathematical finance. In this Second Edition a Chapter 13 entitled 'A Wider View' has been added. This outlines some of the developments that have taken place in the area of Change of Time and Change of Measure since the publication of the First Edition. Most of these developments have their root in the study of the Statistical Theory of Turbulence rather than in Financial Mathematics and Econometrics, and they form part of the new research area termed 'Ambit Stochastics'.

Measure and Integration Theory

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Measure and Integration Theory by Heinz Bauer Book Summary:

This book gives a straightforward introduction to the field as it is nowadays required in many branches of analysis and especially in probability theory. The first three chapters (Measure Theory, Integration Theory, Product Measures) basically follow the clear and approved exposition given in the author's earlier book on "Probability Theory and Measure Theory". Special emphasis is laid on a complete discussion of the transformation of measures and integration with respect to the product measure, convergence theorems, parameter depending integrals, as well as the Radon-Nikodym theorem. The final chapter, essentially new and written in a clear and concise style, deals with the theory of Radon measures on Polish or locally compact spaces. With the main results being Luzin's theorem, the Riesz representation theorem, the Portmanteau theorem, and a characterization of locally compact spaces which are Polish, this chapter is a true invitation to study topological measure theory. The text addresses graduate students, who wish to learn the fundamentals in measure and integration theory as needed in modern analysis and probability theory. It will also be an important source for anyone teaching such a course.

Bernstein Functions

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Bernstein Functions by René L. Schilling,Renming Song,Zoran Vondracek Book Summary:

Bernstein functions appear in various fields of mathematics, e.g. probability theory, potential theory, operator theory, functional analysis and complex analysis– often with different definitions and under different names. Among the synonyms are `Laplace exponent' instead of Bernstein function, and complete Bernstein functions are sometimes called `Pick functions', `Nevanlinna functions' or `operator monotone functions'. This monograph– now in its second revised and extended edition– offers a self-contained and unified approach to Bernstein functions and closely related function classes, bringing together old and establishing new connections. For the second edition the authors added a substantial amount of new material. As in the first edition Chapters 1 to 11 contain general material which should be accessible to non-specialists, while the later Chapters 12 to 15 are devoted to more specialized topics. An extensive list of complete Bernstein functions with their representations is provided.

A User's Guide to Measure Theoretic Probability

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A User's Guide to Measure Theoretic Probability by David Pollard Book Summary:

This book grew from a one-semester course offered for many years to a mixed audience of graduate and undergraduate students who have not had the luxury of taking a course in measure theory. The core of the book covers the basic topics of independence, conditioning, martingales, convergence in distribution, and Fourier transforms. In addition there are numerous sections treating topics traditionally thought of as more advanced, such as coupling and the KMT strong approximation, option pricing via the equivalent martingale measure, and the isoperimetric inequality for Gaussian processes. The book is not just a presentation of mathematical theory, but is also a discussion of why that theory takes its current form. It will be a secure starting point for anyone who needs to invoke rigorous probabilistic arguments and understand what they mean.

Martingales and Stochastic Integrals

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Martingales and Stochastic Integrals by P. E. Kopp Book Summary:

This book provides an introduction to the rapidly expanding theory of stochastic integration and martingales. The treatment is close to that developed by the French school of probabilists, but is more elementary than other texts. The presentation is abstract, but largely self-contained and Dr Kopp makes fewer demands on the reader's background in probability theory than is usual. He gives a fairly full discussion of the measure theory and functional analysis needed for martingale theory, and describes the role of Brownian motion and the Poisson process as paradigm examples in the construction of abstract stochastic integrals. An appendix provides the reader with a glimpse of very recent developments in non-commutative integration theory which are of considerable importance in quantum mechanics. Thus equipped, the reader will have the necessary background to understand research in stochastic analysis. As a textbook, this account will be ideally suited to beginning graduate students in probability theory, and indeed it has evolved from such courses given at Hull University. It should also be of interest to pure mathematicians looking for a careful, yet concise introduction to martingale theory, and to physicists, engineers and economists who are finding that applications to their disciplines are becoming increasingly important.

Formulation and Numerical Solution of Quantum Control Problems

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Formulation and Numerical Solution of Quantum Control Problems by Alfio Borzi,Gabriele Ciaramella,Martin Sprengel Book Summary:

This book provides an introduction to representative nonrelativistic quantum control problems and their theoretical analysis and solution via modern computational techniques. The quantum theory framework is based on the SchrÓdinger picture, and the optimization theory, which focuses on functional spaces, is based on the Lagrange formalism. The computational techniques represent recent developments that have resulted from combining modern numerical techniques for quantum evolutionary equations with sophisticated optimization schemes. Both finite and infinite-dimensional models are discussed, including the three-level Lambda system arising in quantum optics, multispin systems in NMR, a charged particle in a well potential, Bose?Einstein condensates, multiparticle spin systems, and multiparticle models in the time-dependent density functional framework. This self-contained book covers the formulation, analysis, and numerical solution of quantum control problems and bridges scientific computing, optimal control and exact controllability, optimization with differential models, and the sciences and engineering that require quantum control methods.

New features of this edition include: End of chapter exercises; New chapters on basic measure theory and Backward SDEs; Reworked proofs, examples and explanatory material; Increased focus on motivating the mathematics; Extensive topical index. "Such a self-contained and complete exposition of stochastic calculus and applications fills an existing gap in the literature. The book can be recommended for first-year graduate studies. It will be useful for all who intend to work with stochastic calculus as well as with its applications."–Zentralblatt (from review of the First Edition)

Vector and Operator Valued Measures and Applications

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Vector and Operator Valued Measures and Applications by Don H. Tucker,Hugh B. Maynard Book Summary:

Vector and Operator Valued Measures and Applications is a collection of papers presented at the Symposium on Vector and Operator Valued Measures and Applications held in Alta, Utah, on August 7-12, 1972. The symposium provided a forum for discussing vector and operator valued measures and their applications to various areas such as stochastic integration, electrical engineering, control theory, and scattering theory. Comprised of 37 chapters, this volume begins by presenting two remarks related to the result due to Kolmogorov: the first is a theorem holding for nonnegative definite functions from T X T to C (where T is an arbitrary index set), and the second applies to separable Hausdorff spaces T, continuous nonnegative definite functions ? from T X T to C, and separable Hilbert spaces H. The reader is then introduced to the extremal structure of the range of a controlled vector measure ? with values in a Hausdorff locally convex space X over the field of reals; how the theory of vector measures is connected with the theory of compact and weakly compact mappings on certain function spaces; and Daniell and Daniell-Bochner type integrals. Subsequent chapters focus on the disintegration of measures and lifting; products of spectral measures; and mean convergence of martingales of Pettis integrable functions. This book should be of considerable use to workers in the field of mathematics.

Brownian Motion, Martingales, and Stochastic Calculus

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Brownian Motion, Martingales, and Stochastic Calculus by Jean-François Le Gall Book Summary:

This book offers a rigorous and self-contained presentation of stochastic integration and stochastic calculus within the general framework of continuous semimartingales. The main tools of stochastic calculus, including Itô’s formula, the optional stopping theorem and Girsanov’s theorem, are treated in detail alongside many illustrative examples. The book also contains an introduction to Markov processes, with applications to solutions of stochastic differential equations and to connections between Brownian motion and partial differential equations. The theory of local times of semimartingales is discussed in the last chapter. Since its invention by Itô, stochastic calculus has proven to be one of the most important techniques of modern probability theory, and has been used in the most recent theoretical advances as well as in applications to other fields such as mathematical finance. Brownian Motion, Martingales, and Stochastic Calculus provides a strong theoretical background to the reader interested in such developments. Beginning graduate or advanced undergraduate students will benefit from this detailed approach to an essential area of probability theory. The emphasis is on concise and efficient presentation, without any concession to mathematical rigor. The material has been taught by the author for several years in graduate courses at two of the most prestigious French universities. The fact that proofs are given with full details makes the book particularly suitable for self-study. The numerous exercises help the reader to get acquainted with the tools of stochastic calculus.

From Lévy-Type Processes to Parabolic SPDEs

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

From Lévy-Type Processes to Parabolic SPDEs by Davar Khoshnevisan,René Schilling Book Summary:

This volume presents the lecture notes from two courses given by Davar Khoshnevisan and René Schilling, respectively, at the second Barcelona Summer School on Stochastic Analysis. René Schilling’s notes are an expanded version of his course on Lévy and Lévy-type processes, the purpose of which is two-fold: on the one hand, the course presents in detail selected properties of the Lévy processes, mainly as Markov processes, and their different constructions, eventually leading to the celebrated Lévy-Itô decomposition. On the other, it identifies the infinitesimal generator of the Lévy process as a pseudo-differential operator whose symbol is the characteristic exponent of the process, making it possible to study the properties of Feller processes as space inhomogeneous processes that locally behave like Lévy processes. The presentation is self-contained, and includes dedicated chapters that review Markov processes, operator semigroups, random measures, etc. In turn, Davar Khoshnevisan’s course investigates selected problems in the field of stochastic partial differential equations of parabolic type. More precisely, the main objective is to establish an Invariance Principle for those equations in a rather general setting, and to deduce, as an application, comparison-type results. The framework in which these problems are addressed goes beyond the classical setting, in the sense that the driving noise is assumed to be a multiplicative space-time white noise on a group, and the underlying elliptic operator corresponds to a generator of a Lévy process on that group. This implies that stochastic integration with respect to the above noise, as well as the existence and uniqueness of a solution for the corresponding equation, become relevant in their own right. These aspects are also developed and supplemented by a wealth of illustrative examples.

Stochastic Processes

A User-Friendly Introduction to Lebesgue Measure and Integration

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A User-Friendly Introduction to Lebesgue Measure and Integration by Gail S. Nelson Book Summary:

A User-Friendly Introduction to Lebesgue Measure and Integration provides a bridge between an undergraduate course in Real Analysis and a first graduate-level course in Measure Theory and Integration. The main goal of this book is to prepare students for what they may encounter in graduate school, but will be useful for many beginning graduate students as well. The book starts with the fundamentals of measure theory that are gently approached through the very concrete example of Lebesgue measure. With this approach, Lebesgue integration becomes a natural extension of Riemann integration. Next, -spaces are defined. Then the book turns to a discussion of limits, the basic idea covered in a first analysis course. The book also discusses in detail such questions as: When does a sequence of Lebesgue integrable functions converge to a Lebesgue integrable function? What does that say about the sequence of integrals? Another core idea from a first analysis course is completeness. Are these -spaces complete? What exactly does that mean in this setting? This book concludes with a brief overview of General Measures. An appendix contains suggested projects suitable for end-of-course papers or presentations. The book is written in a very reader-friendly manner, which makes it appropriate for students of varying degrees of preparation, and the only prerequisite is an undergraduate course in Real Analysis.

Limit Theorems for Stochastic Processes

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Limit Theorems for Stochastic Processes by Jean Jacod,Albert N. Shiryaev Book Summary:

Initially the theory of convergence in law of stochastic processes was developed quite independently from the theory of martingales, semimartingales and stochastic integrals. Apart from a few exceptions essentially concerning diffusion processes, it is only recently that the relation between the two theories has been thoroughly studied. The authors of this Grundlehren volume, two of the international leaders in the field, propose a systematic exposition of convergence in law for stochastic processes, from the point of view of semimartingale theory, with emphasis on results that are useful for mathematical theory and mathematical statistics. This leads them to develop in detail some particularly useful parts of the general theory of stochastic processes, such as martingale problems, and absolute continuity or contiguity results. The book contains an elementary introduction to the main topics: theory of martingales and stochastic integrales, Skorokhod topology, etc., as well as a large number of results which have never appeared in book form, and some entirely new results. It should be useful to the professional probabilist or mathematical statistician, and of interest also to graduate students.

Stochastic Finance

Measures Integrals And Martingales [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Stochastic Finance by Nicolas Privault Book Summary:

Stochastic Finance: An Introduction with Market Examples presents an introduction to pricing and hedging in discrete and continuous time financial models without friction, emphasizing the complementarity of analytical and probabilistic methods. It demonstrates both the power and limitations of mathematical models in finance, covering the basics of finance and stochastic calculus, and builds up to special topics, such as options, derivatives, and credit default and jump processes. It details the techniques required to model the time evolution of risky assets. The book discusses a wide range of classical topics including Black–Scholes pricing, exotic and American options, term structure modeling and change of numéraire, as well as models with jumps. The author takes the approach adopted by mainstream mathematical finance in which the computation of fair prices is based on the absence of arbitrage hypothesis, therefore excluding riskless profit based on arbitrage opportunities and basic (buying low/selling high) trading. With 104 figures and simulations, along with about 20 examples based on actual market data, the book is targeted at the advanced undergraduate and graduate level, either as a course text or for self-study, in applied mathematics, financial engineering, and economics.
