# Continuous Time Markov Processes: An Introduction

Share this page
*Thomas M. Liggett*

Markov processes are among the most important stochastic processes for
both theory and applications. This book develops the general theory of
these processes and applies this theory to various special examples.
The initial chapter is devoted to the most important classical
example—one-dimensional Brownian motion. This, together with a
chapter on continuous time Markov chains, provides the motivation for
the general setup based on semigroups and generators. Chapters on
stochastic calculus and probabilistic potential theory give an
introduction to some of the key areas of application of Brownian
motion and its relatives. A chapter on interacting particle systems
treats a more recently developed class of Markov processes that have
as their origin problems in physics and biology.

This is a textbook for a graduate course that can follow
one that covers basic probabilistic limit theorems and discrete time
processes.
