Concepts of Probability Theory: Second Revised Edition by Paul E. Pfeiffer Using the Kolmogorov model, this intermediate-level text discusses random variables, probability distributions, mathematical expectation, random processes, more. For advanced undergraduates students of science, engineering, or math. Includes problems with answers and six appendixes. 1965 edition.
Probability: An Introduction by Samuel Goldberg Excellent basic text covers set theory, probability theory for finite sample spaces, binomial theorem, probability distributions, means, standard deviations, probability function of binomial distribution, more. Includes 360 problems with answers for half.
Fifty Challenging Problems in Probability with Solutions by Frederick Mosteller Remarkable puzzlers, graded in difficulty, illustrate elementary and advanced aspects of probability. These problems were selected for originality, general interest, or because they demonstrate valuable techniques. Also includes detailed solutions.
The Logic of Chance by John Venn No mathematical background is necessary to appreciate this classic of probability theory, which remains unsurpassed in its clarity and readability. It explores physical foundations, logical superstructure, and applications. 1888 edition.
Good Thinking: The Foundations of Probability and Its Applications by Irving John Good This in-depth treatment of probability theory by a famous British statistician explores Keynesian principles and surveys such topics as Bayesian rationality, corroboration, hypothesis testing, and mathematical tools for induction and simplicity. 1983 edition.
Statistical Inference: A Concise Course by Robert B. Ash This book offers a brief course in statistical inference that requires only a basic familiarity with probability and matrix and linear algebra. Ninety problems with solutions make it an ideal choice for self-study. 2011 edition.
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.

Outline of Basic Statistics: Dictionary and Formulas by John E. Freund, Frank J. Williams Handy guide includes a 70-page outline of essential statistical formulas covering grouped and ungrouped data, finite populations, probability, and more, plus over 1,000 clear, concise definitions of statistical terms. 1966 edition.
Basic Probability Theory by Robert B. Ash This text emphasizes the probabilistic way of thinking, rather than by measuring theoretic concepts. Geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students, it features solutions to some of the problems. 1970 edition.
Foundations of Probability by Alfred Renyi Taking an innovative approach to both content and methods, this book explores the foundations, basic concepts, and fundamental results of probability theory, plus mathematical notions of experiments and independence. 1970 edition.
Markov Processes and Potential Theory by Robert M. Blumenthal, Ronald K. Getoor This graduate-level text explores the relationship between Markov processes and potential theory in terms of excessive functions, multiplicative functionals and subprocesses, additive functionals and their potentials, and dual processes. 1968 edition.
Probability Theory by Alfred Renyi This introductory text features problems and exercises illustrating algebras of events, discrete random variables, characteristic functions, and limit theorems. An extensive appendix introduces information theory. 1970 edition.
Statistical and Inductive Probabilities by Hugues Leblanc This treatment addresses a decades-old dispute among probability theorists, asserting that both statistical and inductive probabilities may be treated as sentence-theoretic measurements, and that the latter qualify as estimates of the former. 1962 edition.
Probabilistic Metric Spaces by B. Schweizer, A. Sklar Topics include special classes of probabilistic metric spaces, topologies, and several related structures, such as probabilistic normed and inner-product spaces. 1983 edition, updated with 3 new appendixes. Includes 17 illustrations.
Lectures on the Coupling Method by Torgny Lindvall Practical and easy-to-use reference progresses from simple to advanced topics, covering, among other topics, renewal theory, Markov chains, Poisson approximation, ergodicity, and Strassen's theorem. 1992 edition.
Chance, Luck, and Statistics by Horace C. Levinson In simple, non-technical language, this volume explores the fundamentals governing chance and applies them to sports, government, and business. "Clear and lively . . . remarkably accurate." — Scientific Monthly.
A Philosophical Essay on Probabilities by Marquis de Laplace Without the use of higher mathematics, this classic demonstrates the application of probability to games of chance, physics, reliability of witnesses, astronomy, insurance, democratic government, and many other areas.
Applied Probability Models with Optimization Applications by Sheldon M. Ross Concise advanced-level introduction to stochastic processes that arise in applied probability. Poisson process, renewal theory, Markov chains, Brownian motion, much more. Problems. References. Bibliography. 1970 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.
Principles of Statistics by M. G. Bulmer Concise description of classical statistics, from basic dice probabilities to modern regression analysis. Equal stress on theory and applications. Moderate difficulty; only basic calculus required. Includes problems with answers.
Probability Theory: A Concise Course by Y. A. Rozanov This clear exposition begins with basic concepts and moves on to combination of events, dependent events and random variables, Bernoulli trials and the De Moivre-Laplace theorem, and more. Includes 150 problems, many with answers.
Practical Statistics Simply Explained by Dr. Russell A. Langley Primer on how to draw valid conclusions from numerical data using logic and the philosophy of statistics rather than complex formulae. Discusses averages and scatter, investigation design, more. Problems, solutions.
