After writing a series of papers on the foundations of probability and stochastic processes including martingales, markov processes, and stationary processes, doob realized that there was a real need for a book showing what is known about the various types of stochastic processes, so he wrote the book stochastic processes.
Unlike stochastic effects, nonstochastic effects are characterized by a threshold dose below which they do not occur. While even elementary definitions and theorems are stated in detail, this is not recommended as a first text in probability and there has been no compromise with.

The parameter usually takes arbitrary real values or values in an interval on the real axis when one wishes to stress this, one speaks of a stochastic process in continuous time, but it may take only integral values, in which case is. Probability theory, and its dynamic aspect stochastic process theory, is both a venerable subject, in that its roots go back to the midseventeenth century, and a young one, in that its modern formulation happened comparatively recently well within living memory.
