Special Volumes


Celebrating 50 Years of the Applied Probability Trust

(JAP Special Volume 51A)
Eds S. Asmussen, P. Jagers, I. Molchanov and L. C. G. Rogers
ISBN 0 902016 09 5 (2014) vii+408 pp. hbk

The Applied Probability Trust was founded in 1964 for the purpose of launching the Journal of Applied Probability (JAP) established by Joe Gani. In 1969 JAP was joined by a sister journal, Advances in Applied Probability (AAP), to accommodate the ever increasing number of papers. The Trust also publishes The Mathematical Scientist and the magazine Mathematical Spectrum.

This special volume appears in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of both the Trust and JAP. It contains an account of the Trust’s history and activities written by Joe Gani and some historical reflections on applied probability by John Kingman. It also includes the 2014 Applied Probability Trust Lectures given by Dan Crisan and Alexander Gnedin at the jubilee event held at The University of Sheffield in April. The body of the volume consists of a number of invited papers by eminent researchers in applied probability and covers topics such as biological applications, finance and econometrics, heavy tails, Markov processes and renewal theory, random graphs, particle systems, and stochastic geometry.

New Frontiers in Applied Probability

(JAP Special Volume 48A)
Eds P. Glynn, T. Mikosch And T. Rolski
ISBN 0 902016 08 3 (2011) xviii+389 pp. hbk

This Festschrift for Søren Asmussen, published on the occasion of his 65th birthday, celebrates his lifelong achievements in applied probability. A biographical preface is followed by a complete bibliography of Søren's publications to date, which demonstrates his major contributions to the theory of heavy tails, rare event asymptotics and related simulation methods, matrix-geometric modelling, branching processes, Markov processes, and regeneration. Twenty-eight contributions presented by Søren's colleagues reflect these wide-ranging themes.

Stochastic Methods and Their Applications

(JAP Special Volume 41A)
Eds J. Gani and E. Seneta
ISBN 0 902016 07 5 (2004) xviii+414 pp. hbk

This Festschrift for Professor Chris Heyde, published on the occasion of his 65th birthday, celebrates his lifelong achievements as a probabilist and statistician. It begins with a biographical preface, followed by a complete list of Chris's publications to date. Twenty-nine contributions are then presented by Chris's colleagues, some of them his past students, the variety of the topics discussed reflecting the great breadth of his interests. The papers are grouped into seven sections: branching processes, estimation methods, financial mathematics, heavy tail analysis, properties of random variables, stochastic processes, and time series analysis, followed by an index. To all of these areas, Chris has made outstanding contributions.
