This book, suitable for advanced undergraduate, graduate and research courses in statistics, applied mathematics, operation research, computer science, different branches of engineering, business and management, economics and life sciences etc., is aimed between elementary probability texts and advanced works on stochastic processes. What distinguishes the text is the illustration of the theorems by examples and applications.
