This book was released on 08 February 2006 with total pages 310. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Aims to give to the reader the tools necessary to apply semi-Markov processes in real-life problems. The book is self-contained and, starting from a low level of probability concepts, gradually brings the reader to a deep knowledge of semi-Markov processes. Presents homogeneous and non-homogeneous semi-Markov processes, as well as Markov and semi-Markov rewards processes. The concepts are fundamental for many applications, but they are not as thoroughly presented in other books on the subject as they are here.
