Textbooks

Because the homework problems will not come from any textbook, no textbook is strictly required. The following books are good references:

Essentials of Stochastic Processes by Richard Durrett, which is available online here through the UCSD library.
Introduction to Stochastic Processes with R by Robert Dobrow, which is available online here through the UCSD library.
An Introduction to Stochastic Modeling by Mark Pinsky and Samuel Karlin.
