Book DetailsTranslations of Mathematical MonographsVolume: 163; 1997; 347 ppMSC: Primary 60
This book of problems is intended for students in pure and applied mathematics. There are problems in traditional areas of probability theory and problems in the theory of stochastic processes, which has wide applications in the theory of automatic control, queuing and reliability theories, and in many other modern science and engineering fields. Answers to most of the problems are given, and the book provides hints and solutions for more complicated problems.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in probability theory.
