Mathematics Spring, Cupples I, Room Hoel, Sidney C. Port, Charles J. Homework assignments will involve problems from each book. Although there's a considerable amount of overlap between HPS and L, HPS is mathematically more precise and less "user-friendly" while L only tries to "give the main ideas without proofs" and is "less intimidating"; sadly, L is also very sloppy with notations and often very hazy with "explanations".

Especially in the early stages, students will probably find L easier to read since Chapters 1 and 2 of HPS are hard to read. On the other hand, Chapter 3 in HPS is much better written than Chapter 3 in L and in Chapters 8 and 9, L "jumps off the high board" into modern stochastic calculus without doing any of the traditional stochastic calculus presented nicely by HPS in Chapters Since HPS is regarded as a classic book in stochastic processes, having it in one's personal library is beneficial to everyone who uses stochastic processes.

Those who want to use the very fancy Ito calculus sketched in Chapter 9 of L will need to acquire later on a book giving a more sophisticated treatment of this subject than that given by L. We'll begin with the treatment of finite state space Markov chains. These are covered in Chapter 1 of L with Chapter 2 of L moving on to infinite state space Markov chains. On the other hand, HPS do the finite and infinite state space cases simultaneously in their Chapters 1 and 2.

In brief, stochastic processes are the probabilistic version of dynamical systems. Both of these areas are enjoying great popularity with those who want to develop a model for how some complicated phenomenon economic development, business cycles, the weather, ecological systems, In dynamical systems, deterministic models are used with a fixed transition function assumed to exist which, if we only knew a formula for it, would precisely predict the next stage of evolution based on the current stage or state.

Stochastic processes also want to predict futures based on the current state but do so only in probabilistic fashion, giving probabilities for entering various states tomorrow based on today's state. Linear algebra plays a very large role in both subjects. For the finite state space Markov chains with discrete time increments days, weeks, For the infinite state space Markov chains with discrete time increments, we have to go on to Markov matrices with infinitely many rows and columns.

Linear algebra is still important but we have to rely more on probability to prove the basic theorems. Not surprisingly, the results aren't as "clear cut" as in the finite state space case. When we move to the more realistic setting of continuous time Markov processes, we're essentially obliged to limit attention to random variables having nice probability density functions and to use calculus tools.

Basic calculus is still the main tool for the material in Chapters of HPS. However, to understand the Ito formulas modern stochastic calculus , one has to rely on measure theory tools.

To put it mildly, this makes modern stochastic calculus a very difficult subject. During the week of an exam, we'll suspend homework. The homework problems will be drawn from both HPS and L. Each has a wide range of problems, some considerably more difficult than others.

When a number of students have trouble with a particular problem, we'll try to go over it in class. In late March or early April, there will be a take-home exam.

Guidance on the style of each exam and the material covered by the exam will be given in class. In the absence of documentation from the Health Service or the Dean's Office attesting to valid reasons for a student to miss an exam, a grade of 0 will be recorded.

Otherwise, to the extent possible, make-up exams will be avoided by simply excusing the student from the missed exam and basing the course grade on remaining exam scores and homework. If, after a hearing with the instructor and affected student s , a majority of the Committee members are convinced that cheating did occur, the Committee will assess a penalty and inform the instructor and sudent s of its decision.

For exam cheating, the most common penalties are either a failing grade on the exam or a failing grade in the course. When two or more students turn in essentially identical solutions and it's deemed to be virtually certain that this couldn't have happened accidentally, the maximum score for the assignment will be divided among the collaborators.

Thus, if 3 students turn in identical solutions on a homework set worth a maximum of 12 points, 4 will be the maximum for each collaborator. In no case will final grades be lower than indicated by this scaling. However, the instructor reserves the right to switch to a more lenient scaling at the end of the semester if he decides that it is warranted. Also, it's quite likely the final exam will be optional for those who have a B or better pre-final average and elect not to try to improve this grade by taking the final exam.
