Description This introduction can be used, at the beginning graduate level, for a one-semester course on probability theory or for self-direction without benefit of a formal course; the measure theory needed is developed in the text. It will also be useful for students and teachers in related areas such as finance theory, electrical engineering, and operations research.
The text covers the essentials in a directed and lean way with 28 short chapters, and assumes only an undergraduate background in mathematics. Readers are taken right up to a knowledge of the basics of Martingale Theory, and the interested student will be ready to continue with the study of more advanced topics, such as Brownian Motion and Ito Calculus, or Statistical Inference.

Review quote ” The book is a lean and largely self-contained introduction to the modern theory of probability, aimed at advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students. The 28 short chapters belie the book’s genesis as polished lecture notes; the exposition is sleek and rigorous and each chapter ends with a supporting collection of mainly jjacod exercises.
The authors make it clear what luggage is required for this exhilarating trek, With this understood, the itinerary is immaculately paced and planned with just the right balances of technical ascents and pauses to admire the probabilitty. Within the constraints of a slim volume, it is hard to imagine how the authors could have done a more effective or more attractive job.
The topics are treated in a mathematically and pedagogically digestible way. The writing is concise and crisp: Numerous exercises add to the value of the text as a teaching tool. In conclusion, this is an excellent text for the intended audience. Book ratings by Goodreads. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews.
