Prokhorov and Contemporary Probability Theory: In Honor of Yuri V. Prokhorov

Overview

The role of Yuri Vasilyevich Prokhorov as aprominent mathematician and leading expert inthe theory of probability is well known. Even early in his career he obtained substantial results on the validity of the strong law of large numbers and on the estimates (bounds) of the rates of convergence, some of which are the best possible. His findings on limit theorems in metric spaces and particularly functional limit theorems are of exceptional importance. Y.V. Prokhorov developed an original approach to the proof of ...

Overview

The role of Yuri Vasilyevich Prokhorov as aprominent mathematician and leading expert inthe theory of probability is well known. Even early in his career he obtained substantial results on the validity of the strong law of large numbers and on the estimates (bounds) of the rates of convergence, some of which are the best possible. His findings on limit theorems in metric spaces and particularly functional limit theorems are of exceptional importance. Y.V. Prokhorov developed an original approach to the proof of functional limit theorems,based on the weak convergence of finite dimensional distributions and the condition of tightness ofprobability measures.

The presentvolume commemorates the 80th birthday of Yuri Vasilyevich Prokhorov. It includes scientific contributions written by his colleagues, friends andpupils, who would like to express their deep respect and sincerest admiration for him and his scientific work.​
