Probability: Theory and Examples (4th Edition)

This e-book is an creation to chance idea masking legislation of huge numbers, valuable restrict theorems, random walks, martingales, Markov chains, ergodic theorems, and Brownian movement. it's a accomplished therapy targeting the implications which are the main priceless for purposes. Its philosophy is that find out how to research likelihood is to work out it in motion, so there are two hundred examples and 450 difficulties.

Multidimensional Diffusion Processes

"This e-book is a wonderful presentation of the appliance of martingale conception to the speculation of Markov approaches, specifically multidimensional diffusions. This technique was once initiated by way of Stroock and Varadhan of their well-known papers. (. .. ) The proofs and methods are provided in this kind of means that an model in different contexts will be simply performed.
