Integration, Measure and Probability by H. R. Pitt Introductory treatment develops the theory of integration in a general context, making it applicable to other branches of analysis. More specialized topics include convergence theorems and random sequences and functions. 1963 edition.
Theory of Markov Processes by E. B. Dynkin, D. E. Brown, T. Kovary An investigation of the logical foundations of the theory behind Markov random processes, this text explores subprocesses, transition functions, and conditions for boundedness and continuity. 1961 edition.
Probability, Statistics and Truth by Richard von Mises This comprehensive study of probability considers the approaches of Pascal, Laplace, Poisson, and others. It also discusses Laws of Large Numbers, the theory of errors, and other relevant topics.
Elements of the Theory of Markov Processes and Their Applications by A. T. Bharucha-Reid Graduate-level text and reference in probability, with numerous scientific applications. Nonmeasure-theoretic introduction to theory of Markov processes and to mathematical models based on the theory. Appendixes. Bibliographies. 1960 edition.
A unified treatment of the limit theory of branching processes, this volume focuses on basics. Courses in analysis and probability are prerequisites for this text, which is appropriate for graduate students and advanced undergraduates. The authors begin with a detailed development of the basic Galton-Watson process, and subsequent treatment of continuous time cases (both Markov and age-dependent) reduces analogous questions to Galton-Watson counterparts whenever possible. Concluding chapters focus on multi-type branching processes and special processes, and complements and problems appear at the end of each section. Essentially self-contained, this treatment enables students to engage in independent research. 1972 edition.
