Symmetric Dirichlet forms and their associated Markov processes are important and powerful tools in the theory of Markov processes and their applications. In this monograph, we generalize the theory to non-symmetric and time dependent semi-Dirichlet forms. Thus, we can cover the wide class of Markov processes and analytic theory which do not possess the dual markov processes. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
