SUMMARY

The subject of this book is a new direction in the field of probability theory and mathematical statistics which can be called "stability theory": it deals with evaluating the effects of perturbing initial probabilistic models and embraces quite varied subtopics: limit theorems, queueing models, statistical inference, probability metrics, etc. The contributions are original research articles developing new ideas and methods of stability analysis
