    Volume: 82005; 360 pp
    MSC: Primary 60

    Many aspects of the classical probability theory based on vector spaces were generalized in the second half of the twentieth century to measures on groups, especially Lie groups. The subject of probability measures on groups that emerged out of this research has continued to grow and many interesting new developments have occurred in the area in recent years.

    A School was organized jointly with CIMPA, France and the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research entitled "Probability Measures on Groups: Recent Directions and Trends" in Mumbai. Lecture courses were given at the School by M. Babillot (Orlean, France), D. Bakry (Toulouse, France), S.G. Dani (Tata Institute, Mumbai), J. Faraut (Paris), Y. Guivarc'h (Rennes, France) and M. McCrudden (Manchester, U.K.), aimed at introducing various advanced topics on the theme to students as well as teachers and practicing mathematicians who wanted to get acquainted with the area. The prerequisite for the courses was a basic background in measure theory, harmonic analysis and elementary Lie group theory.

    The courses were well-received. Notes were prepared and distributed to the participants during the courses. The present volume represents improved, edited, and refereed versions of the notes, published for dissemination of the topics to the wider community. It is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in probability, algebra, and algebraic geometry.

    A publication of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. Distributed worldwide except in India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldavis, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.

    Readership

    Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in probability, algebra, and algebraic geometry.
