Professor Kallenberg has added over a hundred pages in attempt to keep it up to date with the exponentially increasing body of knowledge which is probability theory. Independent Increments and Infinite Divisibility. Fourier transforms characteristic functions. The law of large numbers and the central limit theorem are formulated and proved. From the table of contents it is difficult to believe behind all these topics a streamlined readable text is at all possible. Stochastic Integrals and Quadratic Variation.
Stationary Processes and Ergodic Theory. This is an essential purchase for any serious probabilist. It is astonishing that a single volume of just over five hundred pages could contain so much material presented with complete rigor and still be at least formally self-contained Seen in this light, Kallenberg’s present book would have to qualify as the assimilation of probability par excellence.

Indeed the monograph has the potential to become a possibly even “the” major kallenber book on large parts of probability theory for the next decade or more. Modes of convergence almost sure, in probability, in distribution, in mean.
Seen in this light, Kallenberg’s present book would have to qualify as the assimilation of probability par excellence. I remember I heard that book from you or someone else a while ago. Stochastic Differential Equations and Martingale Problems.
Foundations of Modern Probability
It is more comprehensive, deep and thorough than the books I have seen before. Skorohod Embedding and Invariance Principles. Martingales and Optional Times. To sum it up, one can perhaps see a distinction among advanced probability books into those which are original and path-breaking in content, such as Levy’s and Doob’s well-known examples, and those which aim primarily to assimilate known material, such as Loeve’s and more recently Rogers and Williams’.

Contents Measure Theory Basic Notions. It is a great edifice of material, clearly and ingeniously presented, without any non-mathematical distractions. Students can also get feedback on their understanding directly from the lecturer, for example during the lecturer’s office hour.
Also, a lot of existing material has been rewritten probzbility expanded. Skorohod Embedding and Invariance Principles. Yet this is precisely what Professor Kallenberg has attempted in the volume under review and he has accomplished it brilliantly Stochastic Differential Equations and Martingale Problems.
Olav Kallenberg was educated in Sweden, where he received his Ph. Uniqueness theorems for Fourier and Laplace transforms.

To sum it up, mkdern can perhaps see a distinction among advanced probability books into those which are original and path-breaking in content, such as Levy’s and Doob’s well-known examples, and those which aim primarily to assimilate known material, such as Loeve’s and more recently Markov Processes and DiscreteTime Chains.

Scheutzow, Zentralblatt “The theory of probability has grown exponentially during the second half of the twentieth century and the idea of writing a single volume that could serve as a general reference for much of the modern theory seems almost foolhardy.
