In the footsteps of the book \textit{Measure Theory and Integration By and For the Learner} of our series in Probability Theory and Statistics, we intended to devote a special volume of the very probabilistic aspects of the first cited theory. The book might have assigned the title : From Measure Theory and Integration to Probability Theory. The fundamental aspects of Probability Theory, as described by the keywords and phrases below, are presented, not from experiences as in the book \textit{A… 

Weak Convergence (IIA) - Functional and Random Aspects of the Univariate Extreme Value Theory

The univariate extreme value theory deals with the convergence in type of powers of elements of sequences of cumulative distribution functions on the real line when the power index gets infinite. In

Finiteness of Record values and Alternative Asymptotic Theory of Records with Atom Endpoints

Asymptotic theories on record values and times, including central limit theorems, make sense only if the sequence of records values (and of record times) is infinite. If not, such theories could not

A Detailed and Direct Proof of Skorohod-Wichura's Theorem

The representation Skorohod theorem of weak convergence of random variables on a metric space goes back to Skorohod (1956) in the case where the metric space is the class of real-valued functions

Study on A Direct Construction of the Standard Brownian Motion

In this note, we combine the two approaches of Billingsley (1998) and Csőrgő and Revesz (1980), to provide a detailed sequential and descriptive for creating s standard Brownian motion, from a

Suppressing information storage in a structured thermal bath

Quantum systems interacting with environments tend to have their information lost from transmission through the correlations generated with the degrees of freedom of the environment. For situations

On the Glivenko-Cantelli theorem for the functional empirical process using associated sequences

Using a general strong law of large number proved by Sangare and Lo in \cite% {sanglo} and the entropy numbers, we provide a functional Glivenko-Cantelli theorem for arbitrary random variables (rv's).

On the Law of Large Numbers for Nonlinear Mean Random Variables

We consider variants of the law of large numbers with respect to the average power, average geometric and mean harmonic systems of random variables and establish various forms of convergence of the



Convergence of probability measures

The author's preface gives an outline: "This book is about weakconvergence methods in metric spaces, with applications sufficient to show their power and utility. The Introduction motivates the

A Course in Probability Theory

This edition of A Course in Probability Theory includes an introduction to measure theory that expands the market, as this treatment is more consistent with current courses.

Measure Theory and Integration By and For the Learner

Any student who goes through the materials, alone or in a small group or under the supervision of an assistant will gain a very solid knowledge in the subject and ensure a sound foundation for studying disciplines such as Probability Theory, Statistics, Functional Analysis, etc.

Probability Theory

In this chapter, the authors make use of the formalizations of measure theory and Lebesgue integration in HOL4 to provide a higher-order-logic formalization of probability theory (Mhamdi, 2013). For

Measure Theory

A flexible application of the Stone-Weierstrass Theorem in General and Application in Probability Theory

When applying the classical Stone-Weierstrass common version in Probability Theory for example but in other fields also, some problems may arise if all points of the compact set are not separated. A

Introduction To Measure And Probability

The introduction to measure and probability is universally compatible with any devices to read and will help you to enjoy a good book with a cup of coffee in the afternoon instead of coping with some malicious virus inside their computer.

A simple proof of the theorem of Sklar and its extension to distribution functions

In this note we provide a quick proof of the Sklar's Theorem on the existence of copulas by using the generalized inverse functions as in the one dimensional case, but a little more sophisticated.
