Series: A Charles Griffin Book. Hardcover: 360 pages. I found out that the reading was an enjoyment for myself, mainly because of the way it presents important results in the measure theory and probability theory contexts related with the Fourier-Stieltjes Transform or the Characteristic Function. Moreover, it shows and proves important results which offten need to be used or at least considered now on applied topics like for instance Financial and Actuarial Mathematics. I consider that this book is a classic. 5 people found this helpful.

Characteristic function (probability theory). Flag as Inappropriate. The characteristic function approach is particularly useful in analysis of linear combinations of independent random variables: a classical proof of the Central Limit Theorem uses characteristic functions and Lévy's continuity theorem. Another important application is to the theory of the decomposability of random variables.
