SPECIAL VOLUME

Special volume of the

XIII Symposium of Probability and Stochastic Processes,

Facultad de Ciencias, UNAM, Mexico, December 4-8, 2017.





Description of the volume



The symposium has a long history, having been held over the course of
now nearly 30 years in various academic institutions in Mexico,
continuously accomplishes its main goal of exchanging ideas and
discussing the current developments in the field by gathering national
and international researchers and graduate students.



As with previous symposia, a volume containing contributions and
lecture notes of the symposium participants will be published. This
volume does not constitute "proceedings" but rather a collection of
contributed articles and lecture notes that reflects the content of
this scientific event.  All papers will undergo rigorous peer review,
with the highest international standards, based on initial editor
screening and anonymous refereeing by independent expert referees.



Previous volumes have been published by the Mexican Mathematical
Society, the American Mathematical Society, the journal Stochastic
Models, and the two latest in the Birkhäuser series Progress in
Probability. The volume of this edition will also be published in the
latter series with the purpose of making of this a a special session.



All the participants are invited to submit a recent original research
paper to be considered for publication in these proceedings. The
deadline for submission of contributions is May 31, 2018.



For editorial reasons we would like to have an estimate of the number
of contributions we will receive, so we kindly ask you to let us know
whether you would consider this volume as a venue for your work by
January 31, 2018.
