Summary The book is conceived as a text accompanying the traditional graduate courses on probability theory. An important feature of this enlarged version is the emphasis on algebraic-topological aspects leading to a wider and deeper understanding of basic theorems such as those on the structure of continuous convolution semigroups and the corresponding processes with independent increments. Fourier transformation - the method applied within the settings of Banach spaces, locally compact Abelian groups and commutative hypergroups - is given an in-depth discussion. This powerful analytic tool along wit.
