MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The most remarkable aspect of the book is the reader-friendly structure and the style in which it has been written. The importance of the book both from the practical and from the theoretical standpoint is unquestionable. This book will be an essential part of every mathematical library." -ZENTRALBLATT Math

"This book consists of three parts: (I) Theory, (II) Applications and (III) Appendices, that concisely summarize necessary mathematical concepts which are often found scattered among numerous texts. ... The most remarkable aspect of the book is its reader-friendly structure and the style in which it has been written. The importance of this book, both from the practical and from the theoretical standpoint, is unquestionable. It will be an essential part of every mathematical library." (V. K. Oganyan, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2007 a)

"This book deals with marked point processes on the positive real axis. It is rigorously written and largely self-contained. ... Each chapter starts with an appealing introduction, including hints to the most important references. The reader is guided by clearly stated comments and hints. ... Many examples and exercises are given ... . This book is suitable for advanced graduate and postgraduate students in mathematics with some preknowledge in this area. It will also be valuable for preparing a respective lecture course." (Martin Schlather, Journal of the American Statistical Association, Vol. 102 (479), 2007)

"The book will serve as a guide to the comprehensive study of the subject, and-more likely-as a reference book, inevitably a standard one. ... Martin Jacobsen write an accessible book is a true gift to the mathematics community. ... This is a good book, and an important one. ... Every researcher with even a passing interest in the subject will want this book on his or her shelf." (Philip Protter, SIAM Review, Vol. 49 (1), 2007)
