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.
