Elementary Probability

Now to be had in a completely revised and up-to-date re-creation, this well-established textbook offers a simple advent to the idea of likelihood. subject matters lined comprise conditional chance, independence, discrete and non-stop random variables, easy combinatorics, producing services and restrict theorems, and an creation to Markov chains.

Probabilistic Applications of Tauberian Theorems

Yakimiv (Steklov Institute of arithmetic) introduces Tauberian theorems and applies them to examining the asymptotic habit of stochastic tactics, list tactics, random diversifications, and infinitely divisible random variables. particularly, the ebook covers multidimensional extensions of Tauberian theorems because of Karamata, weakly oscillating capabilities, one-dimensional Tauberian theorems, Tauberian theorems as a result of Drozhzhinov and Zavyalov, Markov branching techniques, and possibilities of huge deviations within the context of the checklist version
