Khoshnevisan's approach is to develop the ideas that are absolutely central to modern probability theory, and to showcase them by presenting their various applications. As a result, a few of the familiar topics are replaced by interesting nonstandard ones. The topics range from undergraduate probability and classical limit theorems to Brownian motion and elements of stochastic calculus. Throughout, the reader will find many exciting applications of probability theory and probabilistic reasoning. There are numerous exercises, ranging from the routine to the very difficult. Each chapter concludes with historical notes. Request an examination or desk copy. Readership Graduate students interested in probability theory. Reviews "...overall the text is neatly written and presents not only good mathematics but also a heuristic view of modern probability, including numerous exercises and historical notes."
