This book is also designed to be used as a textbook by students of software engineering or system reliability, either in a classroom or for self-study. Examples, case studies, and problems have been provided throughout the book to illustrate the concepts and to walk through the techniques. A Solution Manual is available with solutions to some of the exercises.
Mircea Grigoriu is a professor at Cornell University whose research has focused primarily on applications of probability theory to applied sciences and engineering. His contributions to probabilistic models for actions and physical properties, random vibration, stochastic mechanics, system reliability, and Monte Carlo simulation are reported in over 200 technical papers, three books, and this new book on Stochastic Systems. His work has been recognized by numerous prizes, for example, the 2002 Alfred Freudenthal Medal, the election to the Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences in 2004, and the 2005 Norman Medal. 2b1af7f3a8
