The main theme of this course is to study notions of convergence in (measure-theoretic) probability theory, with an emphasis on statistical applications. The goal is to cover the main limit theorems: WLLN, SLLN (weak and strong laws of large numbers) and CLT (central limit theorem) for real-valued random variables, and to look at the counterparts of these for stochastic processes.
