This third monograph in the series can be regarded as a comprehensive introduction to the theory of stable distributions and their applications. It contains modern outlook on the mathematical aspects of this theory. The authors have attempted to explain numerous peculiarities of stable distributors and have supplied the basic material with a description of the principle concepts of probability theory and function analysis. A significant part of this book is devoted to applications of stable distributions. An attractive feature of this book is the material on the interconnection of stable laws with fractals, chaos and anomalous transport processes.
