This treatment provides an exposition of discrete time dynamic processes evolving over an infinite horizon. Chapter 1 reviews some mathematical results from the theory of deterministic dynamical systems, with particular emphasis on applications to economics. The theory of irreducible Markov processes, especially Markov chains, is surveyed in Chapter 2. Equilibrium and long run stability of a dynamical system in which the law of motion is subject to random perturbations is the central theme of Chapters 3-5. A unified account of relatively recent results, exploiting splitting and contractions, that have found applications in many contexts is presented in detail. Chapter 6 explains how a random dynamical system may emerge from a class of dynamic programming problems. With examples and exercises, readers are guided from basic theory to the frontier of applied mathematical research.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is very well written and it is a clear synthesis of the theory of discrete time dynamical processes with many applications to economics. In particular, the book contains a large number of examples and exercises, which in my opinion, make it a useful guide for students and also for researchers."
Maria J. Garrido-Atienza, Mathematical Reviews
