Probability and Measure provides thorough coverage of probability, measure, integration, random variables and expected values, convergence of distributions, derivatives and conditional probability, stochastic processes, Brownian motion, and ergodic theory. The Anniversary Edition features a new, pedagogically sound interior design with an emphasis on open space. Like the previous editions, this Anniversary Edition will be well received by students of mathematics, statistics, economics, and a wide variety of disciplines that require a solid understanding of probability theory.
