490 1  Probability and its applications 
504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 413-422) and 
505 0  Semigroups -- Probability measures on topological 
       semigroups -- Random walks on semigroups -- Random 
520    Semigroups are very general structures and scientists 
       often come across them in various contexts in science and 
       engineering. In this second edition of Probability 
       Measures on Semigroups, first published in the University 
       Series in Mathematics in 1996, the authors present the 
       theory of weak convergence of convolution products of 
       probability measures on semigroups, the theory of random 
       walks on semigroups, and their applications to products of
       random matrices. They examine the essentials of abstract 
       semigroup theory and its application to concrete 
       semigroups of matrices. They present results on weak 
       convergence, random walks, random matrices using semigroup
       ideas that for the most part are complete and best 
       possible. Still, as the authors point out, there are other
       results that remain to be completed. These are all 
       mentioned in the notes and comments at the end of each 
       chapter, and will keep the readership of this book 
       enthusiastic and interested for some time to come. Apart 
       from corrections of several errors, new results have been 
       added in the main text and in the appendices; the 
       references, all notes and comments at the end of each 
       chapter have been updated, and exercises have been added. 
       This volume is suitable for a one semester course on 
       semigroups and it could be used as a main text or 
       supplementary material for courses focusing on probability
       on algebraic structures or weak convergence. It is ideally
       suited to graduate students in mathematics, and in other 
       fields such as engineering and sciences with an interest 
       in probability. Students in statistics using advance 
       probability will also find it useful. 'A well-written book
       ... This is elegant mathematics, motivated by examples and
       presented in an accessible way that engages the reader.' 
       International Statistics Institute, December 1996 'This 
       beautiful book ... guides the reader through the most 
       important developments ... a valuable addition to the 
       library of the probabilist, and a must for anybody 
       interested in probability on algebraic structures.'

       Mathematical Abstracts 'This well-written volume, by two 
       of the most successful workers in the field ... deserves 
       to become the standard introduction for beginning 
       researchers in this field.' Journal of the Royal 
       Statistical Society.
