Basic Probability Theory (Robert B. Ash)

This primer on more advanced probability and real analysis courses places greater emphasis on probabilistic thinking than measure-theoretic ideas.

This introductory text, intended for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, covers random variables, conditional probability and expectation, characteristic functions, infinite sequences of random variables, Markov chains, and an introduction to statistics. The only prerequisite is calculus. At the book's conclusion, complete answers to several of the issues are presented.

The work begins with a review of fundamental ideas before moving on to surveys of random variables, the characteristics of expectation, conditional probability and expectation, and characteristic functions. The text uses statistics as its primary area of application. Infinite series of random variables, Markov chains, and an introduction to statistics are later topics. The book's conclusion includes detailed answers to some of the issues.
