According to a remark attributed to M. Kac, probability theory is measure
theory with a soul. Furthermore, measure theory has its own ramifications in
topics such as function spaces, operator theory, generalized functions, ergodic
theory, group representations, quantum probability, etc. On the other hand,
recent explosive developments in the applications of probability theory have
imposed the need for a good grasp of measure theory among a wide spectrum of
scholars ranging from economists to engineers and physicists to
psychologists. This book, with its choice of proofs, remarks, examples, and
exercises, has been prepared by taking both these aesthetic and practical
aspects into account. Courses based on this book will help undergraduate and
graduate students in getting a firm grasp of the fundamentals in the twin
themes of probability and measure theory.

This is a revised version of the book published in 1977.
