Robert B. Ash (1935-2015) is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Illinois. He was an Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering at Columbia University and then a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, before coming to the University of Illinois Department of Mathematics in 1963. He retired in 1990. Bob wrote thirteen textbooks but he was most proud of the eight books he posted on his web page during his retirement that were available for free downloading.

Books Authored by Robert B. Ash

This introduction to more advanced courses in probability and real analysis emphasizes the probabilistic way of thinking, rather than measure-theoretic concepts. Its sole prerequisite is calculus.
