Probability Theory with Applications


  • M. Rao, University of California

The material in this book is designed for a standard graduate course on probability theory, including some important applications. It was prepared from the sets of lecture notes for a course that I have taught several times over the past 20 years. The present version reflects the reactions of my audiences as well as some of the textbooks that I used.
