  • R.J. Adler and J.E. Taylor, (2007), Random Fields and Geometry. Go to here (for Europe) or here (for USA) for details. It is written in three parts, and you can get some more details from the following excerpts: Preface, Contents, Part I: Gaussian processes, Part II: Geomerty, PART III: Geometry of random fields, Index. For preprints of specific chapters, please write directly to me. There is also a correction list .


  • R.J. Adler, J.E. Taylor and K.J. Worsley, (20??) Applications of random fields and geometry: Foundations and Case Studies . This book is being written with a statistical audience in mind. It will contain a brief review of the theory of Random Fields and Geometry with some additions that are of more practical importance. More significantly, it will go into detail as to how to apply the theory in practice, along with a slew of examples.

    As the book progresses we shall post early versions here, on the understanding that since it is a work in progress you should expect errors and oversights.

    Progress on this book is currently very slow, in part due to the tragic loss of one of the authors, our good friend Keith Worsley, whom we lost to cancer in early 2009. Nevertheless, we still hope to finish it some time.

    In the meantime, we shall be very grateful for all comments, questions, suggestions and lists of typos that will help improve the final version. One click will download what we have so far. The first four chapters, which are basically background theory, are in pretty good shape. Chapters 5 and 6 are (obviously) first drafts. Use them at your own risk!

    Superprocesses: The Movie. A 15-minute video of superprocess visualisations.

    The movie was produced at the Technion Visualization Centre . Drop me a line at and I will mail you a CD with all the mpeg files, or download some now, for simulations of simple superprocesses in one , two , or three dimensions. (In each one of these simulations you will first see a simulation of many particles following a simple random walk, with total mass spreading out according to the discrete heat equation with small random perturbation, followed by branching random walks meant to simulate superprocesses.)

  • SUPER, an interactive C/GL graphics package for the visualisation of superprocesses in dimensions one through five.

    Documentation, including information on how to obtain, run, and, if necessary, compile the programs, is here.
