Reflections on Statistical Methods or Complex Stochastic Systems

  • Marcel F. Neuts
Part of the International Series in Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 46)


Remembering conversations with Sidney Yakowitz on statistical methods for stochastic systems, the author reflects on the difficulties of such methods and describes several specific problems on which he and his students have worked.
