Probability: Theory and Examples
by Rick Durrett
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2010
Number of pages: 372
This book is an introduction to probability theory covering laws of large numbers, central limit theorems, random walks, martingales, Markov chains, ergodic theorems, and Brownian motion. It is a comprehensive treatment concentrating on the results that are the most useful for applications. Its philosophy is that the best way to learn probability is to see it in action.

by Pierre Simon Laplace - Chapman & Hall
Classic book on probability theory. It demonstrates, without the use of higher mathematics, the application of probability to games of chance, physics, reliability of witnesses, astronomy, insurance, democratic government, and many other areas.

The fundamental aspects of Probability Theory are presented from a pure mathematical view based on Measure Theory. Such an approach places Probability Theory in its natural frame of Functional Analysis and offers a basis towards Statistics Theory.

I aim to make accessible the rules of the calculus of probability to those, unacquainted with the higher chapters of mathematics. The reading of my book will not require any other knowledge except elementary algebra, or even algebraic notation.

History of the probability theory from the time of Pascal to that of Laplace (1865). Todhunter gave a close account of the difficulties involved and the solutions offered by each investigator. His studies were thorough and fully documented.
