Then A. English translation of the original German '"Grundbegriffe der Wahrscheinlichkeitrechnung,"' 'Ergebnisse Der Mathematik', Since then Kolmogorov's foundations have been nearly the only one taken seriously in any 'modern' or 'advanced' work in probability, stochastic processes, or mathematical statistics.
A good start on a good text in stochastic processes was: J. Doob was long at University of Illinois. One of his students was P.
Halmos who was later an assistant to von Neumann at the Institute for Advanced Study and in about wrote the first version of the still standard: Paul R. Van Nostrand Company, Inc.

Later he wrote: Paul R. Halmos, 'Measure Theory', D. Likely the first rock solid, quite comprehensive, highly polished presentation of 'modern' probability was the first edition of: M.
Loeve was long at Berkeley. Either of these two can be regarded as a more succinct presentation of the more important material in Loeve.
Leo Breiman 1928--2005
Breiman is the more 'practical' and 'accessible'; Neveu is a crown jewel of elegance and succinctness but not always easy to read. In total, those texts nail down 'probability' at all four corners and make it a rock solid topic in applied math.
Good knowledge of, say, Breiman is a necessary and sufficient condition for knowing 'probability' at a serious level, that is, without being watered down for 'general audiences'. For more, proceed with stochastic processes, stochastic optimal control, mathematical statistics, etc.
An Advanced Course
For learning probability, minimal prerequisites more would be helpful would be abstract algebra, linear algebra, 'analysis', measure theory, and functional analysis. For abstract algebra, there are many texts. Sufficient is I.
Lang, etc. The combination of these two aspects makes probability theory one of the most exciting?
One can study probability as a purely mathematical enterprise, but even when you do that, all the concepts that arisedo haveameaningontheintuitivelevel. Forinstance,wehaveto de? Why have I written this book?
A Natural Introduction to Probability Theory
I have been teaching probability for more than? There are already many introductory texts about probability, and there had better be a good reason to write a new one. I will try to explain my reasons now.
Why have I written this book? I have been teaching probability for more than fifteen years now, and decided to do something with this experience. There are already many introductory texts about probability, and there had better be a good reason to write a new one.
I will try to explain my reasons now. Reviews "The book [is] an excellent new introductory text on probability. The classical way of teaching probability is based on measure theory.Overall, this is a five-star book on probability that could be used as a textbook or as a supplement.
