This concise introduction covers all of the measure theory and probability most useful for statisticians. Originating from the authors' own graduate course, it is perfect for a two-term course or for self-study. It is especially useful to graduate students in related fields who want to shore up their mathematical foundation.
About the Author
Ross Leadbetter is Professor of Statistics and Operations Research at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. His research involves stochastic process theory and applications, point processes, and particularly extreme value and risk theory for stationary sequences and processes.
Stamatis Cambanis was a Professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill until his death in 1995. He taught a wide range of statistics and probability courses and contributed very significantly to the development of the measure and probability instruction and the lecture notes on which this volume is based.
Vladas Pipiras has been with the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill since 2002 and rose to full Professor in 2012. His main research interests focus on stochastic processes exhibiting long-range dependence, multifractality and other scaling phenomena, as well as on stable, extreme-value and other distributions possessing heavy tails. He has also worked on statistical inference questions for reduced-rank models with applications to econometrics, and sampling issues for finite point processes with applications to data traffic modeling in computer networks.
