Aims to offer to the reader the instruments essential to observe semi-Markov approaches in real-life problems.

The ebook is self-contained and, ranging from a low point of chance ideas, steadily brings the reader to a deep wisdom of semi-Markov processes.

Presents homogeneous and non-homogeneous semi-Markov techniques, in addition to Markov and semi-Markov rewards processes.

The innovations are basic for lots of functions, yet they aren't as completely offered in different books at the topic as they're here.

S. This result is interesting for the concept of stopped process. 5 Let X be a stochastic process and T a stopping time. 15) where: Probability Tools withtAT 43 = mf{t,T]. From this definition, it follows that if the process X is adapted and cadlag, then so is the stopped process X^. This is due to the fact that / A T is also a stopping time and moreover: This leads to the last result we want to mention. 4 Let X be a right continuous uniformly integrable martingale: then the stopped process ^ =(^/Ar'^^[0'^Jj has the same properties with respect to the filtration (3^,^ ^ [^'°^])- 9 BROWNIAN MOTION There are a lot of particular stochastic processes and some of them will be extensively studied in the sequel, such as renewal processes, random walks, Markov chains, semi-Markov and Markov processes and their main extensions.

4): i/(0-XFW(0. 9) In several cases, it is useful to consider the initial renewal and to define at time t the random variable N^t) as being the total number of renewals on [ 0 , / ] . 6): R(t) = f^F^"\t). 14) R(t) = Uo(t)-^Hit). The classification of a renewal process is based on three concepts: recurrence, transience ^nd periodicity. 1 (i) A renewal process (T^, n>l) is recurrent if X^ < oo for all n; otherwise it is called transient. }, and 5 is the largest such number. Otherwise {that is, if there is no such strictly positive S ), the renewal process is aperiodic.

Let us consider a queueing system composed of a server, a process of customer arrivals, a process of service times and a discipline rule of the type "first in, first out" (FIFO), which means the first customer present in the system is the first served.
