King University of Florida, Gainesville FL 32611-2082, USA email@example.com Webpage http://www.math.ufl.edu/ squash/ 4 May, 2010 (at 22:15 ) This is a full-year course that covers absolutely lovely mathematics. Well use Breimans fine book Probability , a classic now published by SIAM. What little measure theory well need, I will develop in class. Topics include: The Weak and Strong Laws of Large Numbers; Independence (Kolmogorov zero-one law, Hewitt-Savage zero-one law etc); Conditional proba- bility; Martingales; and an initial foray into Markov Chains. If time permits, well cover the basic Ergodic the- orems, depending on the interests of the students. I am open to special ( elementary ) topics, if a student has a particular need/interest. In the second semester, among other topics well explore deeper into Markov chains, examine Brown- ian motion, and explore some probabilistic methods in Ergodic theory. In the second semester I am quitein Ergodic theory....
