An Introduction to Probability and Random Processes
by Gian-Carlo Rota, Kenneth Baclawski
Number of pages: 467
The purpose of this course is to learn to think probabilistically. We begin by giving a bird's-eye view of probability by examining some of the great unsolved problems of probability theory. It's only by seeing what the unsolved problems are that one gets a feeling for a field.

No mathematical background is necessary for this classic of probability theory. It remains unsurpassed in its clarity, readability, and charm. It commences with physical foundations, examines logical superstructure, and explores various applications.

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.

In this book Nelson develops a new approach to probability theory that is just as powerful as but much simpler than conventional Kolmogorov-style probability theory used throughout mathematics for most of the 20th century.

An introduction to probability theory covering laws of large numbers, central limit theorems, random walks, martingales, Markov chains, ergodic theorems, and Brownian motion. It concentrates on the results that are the most useful for applications.
