This monograph is a progressive introduction to non-commutativity in probability theory, summarizing and synthesizing recent results about classical and quantum stochastic processes on Lie algebras. In the early chapters, focus is placed on concrete examples of the links between algebraic relations and the moments of probability distributions. The subsequent chapters are more advanced and deal with Wigner densities for non-commutative couples of random variables, non-commutative stochastic processes with independent increments (quantum Lévy processes), and the quantum Malliavin calculus. This book will appeal to advanced undergraduate and graduate students interested in the relations between algebra, probability, and quantum theory. It also addresses a more advanced audience by covering other topics related to non-commutativity in stochastic calculus, Lévy processes, and the Malliavin calculus.

Questions about modular representation theory of finite groups can often be reduced to elementary abelian subgroups. This is the first book to offer a detailed study of the representation theory of elementary abelian groups, bringing together information from many papers and journals, as well as unpublished research. Special attention is given to recent work on modules of constant Jordan type, and the methods involve producing and examining vector bundles on projective space and their Chern classes. Extensive background material is provided, which will help the reader to understand vector bundles and their Chern classes from an algebraic point of view, and to apply this to modular representation theory of elementary abelian groups. The final section, addressing problems and directions for future research, will also help to stimulate further developments in the subject. With no similar books on the market, this will be an invaluable resource for graduate students and researchers working in representation theory.

This book comprises a systematic, self-contained introduction to the Margulis-Zimmer theory and provides an entry into current research. Taking as prerequisites only the standard first-year graduate courses in mathematics, the author develops in a detailed and self-contained way the main results on Lie groups, Lie algebras, and semisimple groups, including basic facts normally covered in first courses on manifolds and Lie groups plus topics such as integration of infinitesimal actions of Lie groups. He then derives the basic structure theorems for the real semisimple Lie groups, such as the Cartan and Iwasawa decompositions, and gives an extensive exposition of the general facts and concepts from topological dynamics and ergodic theory, including detailed proofs of the multiplicative ergodic theorem and Moore's ergodicity theorem.

The geometry and analysis that is discussed in this book extends to classical results for general discrete or Lie groups, and the methods used are analytical, but are not concerned with what is described these days as real analysis. Most of the results described in this book have a dual formulation: they have a "discrete version" related to a finitely generated discrete group and a continuous version related to a Lie group. The authors chose to center this book around Lie groups, but could easily have pushed it in several other directions as it interacts with the theory of second order partial differential operators, and probability theory, as well as with group theory.

Dieses Buch wendet sich zuallererst an intelligente Schüler ab 14 Jahren sowie an Studienanfänger, die sich für Mathematik interessieren und etwas mehr als die Anfangsgründe dieser Wissenschaft kennenlernen möchten. Es gibt inzwischen mehrere Bücher, die eine ähnliche Zielstellung verfolgen. Besonders gern erinnere ich mich an das Werk Vom Einmaleins zum Integral von Colerus, das ich in meiner Kindheit las. Es beginnt mit der folgenden entschiedenen Feststellung: Die Mathematik ist eine Mausefalle. Wer einmal in dieser Falle gefangen sitzt, findet selten den Ausgang, der zurück in seinen vormathematischen Seelenzustand leitet. ([49], S. 7) Einige dieser Bücher sind im Anhang zusammengestellt und kommen tiert. Tatsächlich ist das Unternehmen aber so lohnenswert und die Anzahl der schon vorhandenen Bücher doch so begrenzt, daß ich mich nicht scheue, ihnen ein weiteres hinzuzufügen. An zahlreichen amerikanischen Universitäten gibt es Vorlesungen, die gemeinhin oder auch offiziell als ,,Mathematik für Schöngeister'' firmieren. Dieser Kategorie ist das vorliegende Buch nicht zuzuordnen. Statt dessen soll es sich um eine ,,Mathematik für Mathematiker'' handeln, für Mathema tiker freilich, die noch sehr wenig von der Mathematik verstehen. Weshalb aber sollte nicht der eine oder andere von ihnen eines Tages den Autor dieses 1 Buches durch seine Vorlesungen in Staunen versetzen? Ich hoffe, daß auch meine Mathematikerkollegen Freude an dem Werk haben werden, und ich würde mir wünschen, daß auch andere Leser, bei denen die Wertschätzung für die Mathematik stärker als die Furcht vor ihr ist, Gefallen an ihm finden mögen.

Non-homogeneous Random Walks

Lyapunov Function Methods for Near-Critical Stochastic Systems

Stochastic systems provide powerful abstract models for a variety of important real-life applications: for example, power supply, traffic flow, data transmission. They (and the real systems they model) are often subject to phase transitions, behaving in one way when a parameter is below a certain critical value, then switching behaviour as soon as that critical value is reached. In a real system, we do not necessarily have control over all the parameter values, so it is important to know how to find critical points and to understand system behaviour near these points. This book is a modern presentation of the 'semimartingale' or 'Lyapunov function' method applied to near-critical stochastic systems, exemplified by non-homogeneous random walks. Applications treat near-critical stochastic systems and range across modern probability theory from stochastic billiards models to interacting particle systems. Spatially non-homogeneous random walks are explored in depth, as they provide prototypical near-critical systems.
