Probability Theory is a classic topic in any course of exact sciences, that evolved from the amalgamation of different areas of mathematics, including set and measure theory. An axiomatic treatment of probability is presented in the book. Probability Theory is fundamental to several areas of knowledge, including engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics, sciences, economics, biology, medicine, social sciences and social communication. The book targets graduate students who may not have taken basic courses in these specific topics, and can provide a quick and concise way to obtain the knowledge they need to succeed in advanced courses.
