Summary:
"This book presents a self-contained study of the Riemann approach to the theory of random variation and assumes only some familiarity with probability or statistical analysis, basic Riemann integration, and mathematical proofs. The author focuses on non-absolute convergence in conjunction with random variation"-- Provided by publisher.
