SUMMARY

Stochastic point processes are sets of randomly located points in time, on the plane or in some general space. This book provides a general introduction to the theory, starting with simple examples and an historical overview, and proceeding to the general theory. It thoroughly covers recent work in a broad historical perspective in an attempt to provide a wider audience with insights into recent theoretical developments. It contains numerous examples and exercises. This book aims to bridge the gap between informal treatments concerned with applications and highly abstract theoretical treatments
