It is well known that the normal distribution is the most pleasant, one can even say, an exemplary object in the probability theory. It combines almost all conceivable nice properties that a distribution may ever have: symmetry, stability, indecomposability, a regular tail behavior, etc. Gaussian measures (the distributions of Gaussian random functions), as infinite-dimensional analogues of tht< classical normal distribution, go to work as such exemplary objects in the theory of Gaussian random functions. When one switches to the infinite dimension, some "one-dimensional" properties are extended almost literally, while some others should be profoundly justified, or even must be reconsidered. What is more, the infinite-dimensional situation reveals important links and structures, which either have looked trivial or have not played an independent role in the classical case. The complex of concepts and problems emerging here has become a subject of the theory of Gaussian random functions and their distributions, one of the most advanced fields of the probability science. Although the basic elements in this field were formed in the sixties-seventies, it has been still until recently when a substantial part of the corresponding material has either existed in the form of odd articles in various journals, or has served only as a background for considering some special issues in monographs.

*"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.*

The last decade not only enriched the theory of Gaussian random functions with several new and important results, but also marked a significant shift in the approach to presenting the material. New, simple and short proofs of a number of fundamental statements have appeared, based on the systematic use of the convexity of measures the isoperimetric inequalities. This volume presents a coherent, compact, and mathematically complete series of the most essential properties of Gaussian random functions.

The book focuses on a number of fundamental objects in the theory of Gaussian random functions and exposes their interrelations. The basic plots presented in the book embody: the kernel of a Gaussian measure, the model of a Gaussian random function, oscillations of sample functions, the convexity and isoperimetric inequalities, the regularity of sample functions of means of entropy characteristics and the majorizing measures, functional laws of the iterated logarithm, estimates for the probabilities of large deviations.

This volume will be of interest to mathematicians and scientists who use stochastic methods in their research. It will also be of great value to students in probability theory.
