The vast majority of random processes in the real world have no memory - the next step in their development depends purely on their current state. Stochastic realizations are therefore defined purely in terms of successive event-time pairs, and such systems are easy to simulate irrespective oftheir degree of complexity. However, whilst the associated probability equations are straightforward to write down, their solution usually requires the use of approximation and perturbation.
Eric Renshaw graduated from Imperial College, London with a B.Sc. in Mathematics, studied for the Diploma in Statistics at Manchester University, and then researched for his M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees in spatial stochastic population processes at Sussex and Edinburgh Universities. He joined the staff of Edinburgh University in 1969, fi...
