Basic Methodology for Single Population Stochastic Models
This chapter introduces the basic theoretical tools utilized subsequently for solving single population stochastic models. Most of these tools are developed more extensively in the basic textbooks in stochastic processes, including the leading applied texts by Bailey , Chiang  and Renshaw . The basic methodology is also described and illustrated specifically as applied to standard compartmental models in Jacquez . This monograph will build on Jacquez’ development, most notably by including “births” into the stochastic compartmental models.
