Foundations of Modern Probability Olav Kallenberg. Feynman-Kac Formulae Pierre del Moral. Mass Transportation Problems Svetlozar T. Diffusions and Elliptic Operators Richard F. Quasi-Stationary Toundations Pierre Collet. Back cover copy From the reviews of the first editions. Kallenberg’s present book would have to qualify as the assimilation of probability par excellence. It is a great edifice of material, clearly and ingeniously presented, without any non-mathematical distractions.
Readers wishing to venture into it may do so probabiluty confidence that they are in very capable hands. Indeed the monograph has the potential to become a possibly even “the” major reference book on large parts of probability theory for the next decade or more.
Scheutzow, Zentralblatt “The theory of probability has grown exponentially during the second half of the twentieth century and the idea of writing a single volume that could serve as a general reference for much of the modern theory seems almost foolhardy.
Yet this is precisely what Professor Kallenberg has attempted in the volume under review and he has accomplished it brilliantly 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 Getoor, Metrika This new edition contains four new chapters as well as numerous improvements throughout the text. Olav Kallenberg was educated in Sweden, where he received his Ph.
After teaching for many years at Swedish universities, he moved in to the U. He is known for his book “Random Measures” 4th edition, and for numerous research papers in all areas of probability.
Inhe was the second recipient ever of the prestigious Rollo Davidson Prize from Cambridge University.

Getoor, Metrica From the reviews of the second edition: For the second edition 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.
This is an essential purchase for any serious probabilist.
The second edition is a revised and enlarged version of the first Of course, the praise for the first edition applies to the second edition as well. Nevertheless, it should be noted that the style in which this monograph is written is concise and particular. It has been said that the present kallenbefg is a modern classic in probability theory, and this is true.
