## Probability: theory and examplesModern and measure-theory based, this text is intended primarily for the first-year graduate course in probability theory. The book focuses attention on examples while developing theory. There is an emphasis on results that can be used to solve problems in the hopes that those who apply probability to work will find this a useful reference. |

#### Review: Probability: Theory and Examples

User Review - Xing Shi - GoodreadsI like the book because it usually gives proof for theorems in more generalized forms, but I really don't like the typos in the electronic version. I'm not sure about the printed version, but if it's the same the electronic one, then an errata is definitely needed. Read full review
