Population processes are stochastic models for systems involving a number of similar particles. Examples include models for chemical reactions and for epidemics. The model may involve a finite number of attributes, or even a continuum.
This monograph considers approximations that are possible when the number of particles is large. The models considered will involve a finite number of different types of particles.
