Probabilistic Symmetries and Invariance Principles
Description This book is about random objects-sequences, processes, arrays, measures, functionals-with interesting symmetry properties. Here symmetry should beunderstoodinthebroadsenseofinvarianceunderafamily notnecessarily a group of measurable transformations. To be precise, it is not the random objects themselves but rather their distributions that are assumed to be symmetric. Though many probabilistic symmetries are conceivable and have been considered in various contexts, four of them-stationarity, contractability, exchangeability, and rotatability-stand out as especially interesting and – portant in several ways: Their study leads to some deep structural theorems of great beauty and signi?
The mentioned symmetries may be de? Stationarity being a familiar classical topic, treated extensively in many standard textbooks and monographs, most of our attention will be focused on the remaining three basic symmetries. The study of general probabilistic symmetries essentially originated with the work of de Finettiwho proved by elementary means no – vanced tools being yet available the celebrated theorem named after him- the fact that every in?

Diffusions and Elliptic Operators Richard F. Quasi-Stationary Distributions Pierre Collet. Back cover copy This is the first comprehensive treatment of the three basic symmetries of probability theory–contractability, exchangeability, and rotatability–defined as invariance in distribution under contractions, permutations, and rotations.
Originating with the pioneering work of de Finetti from the ‘s, the theory has evolved into a unique body of deep, beautiful, and often surprising results, comprising the basic representations and invariance properties in one and several dimensions, and exhibiting some unexpected links between probabilistlc various symmetries as well as to many other areas of modern probability.
Most chapters require only some basic, graduate level probability theory, and should be accessible to any serious researchers and graduate students in probability and statistics. Parts of the book may also be of interest to pure and applied mathematicians in other areas.
The exposition is formally self-contained, with detailed references provided for any deeper facts from real analysis or probability used in the book. Olav Kallenberg received his Ph. After teaching for many years at Swedish universities, he moved in syymmetries the US, lrobabilistic he is currently Professor of Mathematics at Auburn University. He is well known for his previous books Random Measures 4th edition, and Foundations of Modern Probability 2nd edition, and for numerous research papers in all areas of probability.

Table of contents The Basic Symmetries. Review Text From the kwllenberg of the first edition: The monograph provides a tight approach to this subject based on modern mathematical tools The reader interested in this field symmetrifs find a comprehensive investigation leading to the actual frontiers of research.
This book has an extensive bibliography and valuable, detailed historical notes that place the work in context and provide links to areas of application. The text conveys the author’s enthusiasm for the subject and his deep understanding of the key structures gained over 30 years of active research into the subject.
The book may thus be used as much as read in kallennerg future. A reader interested in exchangeability will find results a-plenty in this book As a whole, this is a grand conception, superbly realized.
