by D. A. Levin, Y. Peres, E. L. Wilmer - American Mathematical Society
An introduction to the modern approach to the theory of Markov chains. The main goal of this approach is to determine the rate of convergence of a Markov chain to the stationary distribution as a function of the size and geometry of the state space.

The goal of this set of lectures is to combine two seemingly unrelated topics: (1) The study of Boolean functions, a field particularly active in computer science; (2) Some models in statistical physics, mostly percolation.
by D. Pollard - Springer
Selected parts of empirical process theory, with applications to mathematical statistics. The book describes the combinatorial ideas needed to prove maximal inequalities for empirical processes indexed by classes of sets or classes of functions.
by G. Jay Kerns
A textbook for an undergraduate course in probability and statistics. The prerequisites are two or three semesters of calculus and some linear algebra. Students attending the class include mathematics, engineering, and computer science majors.
