Chapters from the first edition have been revised editiob corrected, and this edition contains four new chapters. 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 Selected pages Title Page.
Nevertheless, it should be noted that the style in which this monograph is written is concise and particular.

Description The first edition of this single volume on the theory of probability has become a highly-praised standard reference for many areas of probability theory.
Foundations of Modern Probability : Olav Kallenberg :
Indeed the monograph has the potential to become a possibly even “the” major founations book on large parts of probability theory for the next decade or more. Seen in this light, Kallenberg’s present book would have to qualify as the assimilation of probability par excellence. Scheutzow, Zentralblatt “The theory of probability has seconx exponentially during the second half of the twentieth century and the idea of writing a single volume that could serve foundatons a general reference for much of the modern theory seems almost foolhardy.
Professor Kallenberg is an elected fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. 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. 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.
