Preliminary Information

MATH3733 lecture notes

This is a collection of lecture notes organised as a connected text. As such, it slightly differs from the union of the handouts, in particular, because it has a third part, where all revision and new probability material has been collected, including, for example, conditional expectations.

Part 1: discrete time

Part 2: continuous time

Part 3: Probability basics

MATH3733 handouts

These handouts were prepared by A.Veretennikov with the help of references from literature and lecture notes (1999) by John Kent.

Blue colour in the text of a handout means an improvement or an addition after a handout was distributed. Magenta colour means also an addition which is more difficult and not compulsory. Before a corresponding lecture, any handout is a preliminary version.
