Lectures on Random Polymers
by F. Caravenna, F. den Hollander, N. Petrelis
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 74
These lecture notes are a guided tour through the fascinating world of polymer chains interacting with themselves and/or with their environment. The focus is on the mathematical description of a number of physical and chemical phenomena, with particular emphasis on phase transitions and space-time scaling.

The book is addressed to readers familiar with applied mathematics at the advanced undergraduate level. The text is concerned with probability theory and all of its mathematics, but now viewed in a wider context than that of the standard textbooks.
by Gian-Carlo Rota - David Ellerman
In 1999, Gian-Carlo Rota gave his famous course, Probability, at MIT for the last time. The late John N. Guidi taped the lectures and took notes which he then wrote up in a verbatim manner conveying the substance and the atmosphere of the course.
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.
