Probability Theory often arise in many fields of science and engineering like as queueing theory, games theory, numerical analysis as well as various life and social sciences. This book will be of interest to workers in these fields.
This book is a collection of essays  original papers  all presented to the memory of József Mogyoródi. The papers are presented in their full lengths, refered and including complete proofs.
Probability Theory and Applications discusses such subtopics as random walk processes, limit theorems, remarkable inequalities, reliability theory, stochastic processes. Also this book emphasizes the connections probability theory has to functional analysis, statistics, number theory.
Providing original, topquality contributions from the Probability Theory research, the book is an indispensable tool for applied and industrial mathematicians, computer scientists, statisticians, and graduatelevel students in this discipline. A knowledge of calculus is assumed.
The book is very well produced. Some pictures illustrate the ideas and the formulae. Detailed references to available books, journals and monographs are given. Also a subject index is included. The book reflects the experience of the authors in the research work hence I recommend this book to libraries of mathematical colleges.
