sure theory and topology. Nonstandard analysis’ main contribution to probability theory is the introduction of “very rich” spaces where many existence proofs can be simpliﬁed. With neocompact sets we are able to deﬁne the notion of a rich adapted probability space in conventional terms. The proof that such spaces exist, however.

It does not cover measure theory (touches lightly at some places) but approaches continous probability from Riemann integral approach - so this is a basic probability book/5(17). book on probability theory.

I'd recommend Klenke's Probability Theory. It gives a good overview of the basic ideas in probability theory. In the beginning it builds up the basics of measure theory and set functions. There are also some examples of applications of probability theory.

It is a basic tenet of probability theory that the sample mean X n should approach the mean as n!1. This principle is known as the law of large numbers: The Law of Large Numbers Let fX ngbe a sequence of independent, identically distributed random variables with nite mean, and let X n = X 1 + + X n n: Then X n should approach as n.
