Subject: New Book, A Ramble Through Probability

A Ramble Through Probability: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love
Measure Theory by Samopriya Basu, Troy Butler, Don Estep, and Nishant

Measure theory and measure-theoretic probability are fascinating
subjects. Proofs describing profound ways to reason lead to results
that are frequently startling, beautiful, and useful. Measure theory
and probability also play roles in the development of pure and applied
mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics, and finance. Indeed, it
is difficult to overstate their importance in the quantitative
disciplines. This book traces an eclectic path through the
fundamentals of the topic to make the material accessible to a broad
range of students.

A Ramble through Probability: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love
Measure Theory brings together the key elements and applications in a
unified presentation aimed at developing intuition; contains an
extensive collection of examples that illustrate, explain, and apply
the theories; and is supplemented with videos containing commentary
and explanations of select proofs on an ancillary website.

but do not hesitate to contact us for specific requests.

Turbulence in environmental flows
Abstract. Turbulence is one of the last mysteries, not yet fully
understood, in nonlinear fluid mechanics (including multiphase
flows). In this course, we provide an introduction to turbulence by
coupling the analysis of the most used numerical models (e.g.,
k-epsilon model) and the interpretation of real-world measurements,
with a special focus on processes occurring in the atmosphere and in
stratified water bodies such as lakes. The course covers theoretical
and numerical aspects of turbulence modelling and introduces the
necessary statistical tools for the analysis of data from turbulence
observations both in the field and in the laboratory. Theoretical
aspects are supported by numerous hands-on tutorials.
