Introduction to finite mathematics by
John G Kemeny(
Book
)
94 editions published between 1956 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 2,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides an introduction to the elementary theory of logic, sets, probability theory, and linear algebra. It treats a number of practical applications, useful in everyday life, but applicable to biological, behavioral, and social sciences

Random walks and electric networks by
Peter G Doyle(
Book
)
22 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Probability theory, like much of mathematics, is indebted to physics as a source of problems and intuition for solving these problems. Unfortunately, the level of abstraction of current mathematics often makes it difficult for anyone but an expert to appreciate this fact. Random Walks and Electric Networks looks at the interplay of physics and mathematics in terms of an example  the relation between elementary electric network theory and random walks where the mathematics involved is at the college level

Probability tales by
Charles M Grinstead(
Book
)
10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book explores four realworld topics through the lens of probability theory. It can be used to supplement a standard text in probability or statistics. Most elementary textbooks present the basic theory and then illustrate the ideas with some neatly packaged examples. Here the authors assume that the reader has seen, or is learning, the basic theory from another book and concentrate in some depth on the following topics: streaks, the stock market, lotteries, and fingerprints. This extended format allows the authors to present multiple approaches to problems and to pursue promising side discussions in ways that would not be possible in a book constrained to cover a fixed set of topics."Page 4 of cover

Denumerable Markov chains by
John G Kemeny(
Book
)
23 editions published in 1976 in 3 languages and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This textbook provides a systematic treatment of denumerable Markov chains, covering both the foundations of the subject and some in topics in potential theory and boundary theory. It is a discussion of relations among what might be called the descriptive quantities associated with Markov chainsprobabilities of events and means of random variables that give insight into the behavior of the chains. The approach, by means of infinite matrices, simplifies the notation, shortens statements and proofs of theorems, and often suggests new results. This second edition includes the new chapter, Introduction to Random Fields, written by David Griffeath
