## About the author

Geoffrey Grimmett, Director of Research and Professor Emeritus, Mathematical Statistics, University of Cambridge, David Stirzaker, Professor Emeritus, Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford

Geoffrey Grimmett is Professor Emeritus of Mathematical Statistics at the University of Cambridge. Cambridge has been his base for pursuing probability theory and disordered systems mathematics since 1992.

He was a Masters from Downing College, Cambridge from 2013-2018 and was appointed Chair of the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research from 2020. He has authored numerous research articles in probability theory and statistical mechanics as well as three research books. He is the co-author of two successful textbooks on probability, with David Stirzaker and Dominic Welsh and random processes at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

David Stirzaker was educated at Oxford University and Berkeley before being appointed Fellow and Tutor in Applied Mathematics at St John's College, Oxford. Today he is Research Fellow Emeritus at St. John's College and Professor Emeritus at the Mathematical Institute, Oxford. He wrote five textbooks on probability and random processes, two of them with Geoffrey Grimmett. Most recently (2015) he wrote The Cambridge Dictionary of Probability and its Applications.

### Revision

*"Since its first appearance in 1982 Probability and Random Processes has been a foundational book on the subject and has become a must-read for any mathematician who wishes to understand the case. It is aimed primarily at undergraduate and graduate students, but goes beyond this level, and all serious mathematicians and academic libraries should have a copy ... the accompanying workbook is intelligently designed and ... makes a perfect complement to the main text."* -** Times Higher**

### Education Supplement

*"Review from the previous edition ... a complete and comprehensive account of (almost) probability theory and stochastic processes that one could hope to teach undergraduates ... In addition to its masterful coverage of the material, the book has many interesting stylistic features ... of extreme value in
find good proofs of theorems that are treated rather superficially in other textbooks. "* -

**The Mathematical Gazette**

*"One of the book's strong points is its large collection of interesting exercises, which has been greatly expanded in this new edition, now numbering over a thousand. These are conveniently collected in a separate volume containing complete solutions."* - **Biometrics**
