This book explores weak convergence theory and empirical processes and their applications to many applications in statistics. Part one reviews stochastic convergence in its various forms. Part two offers the theory of empirical processes in a form accessible to statisticians and probabilists. Part three covers a range of topics demonstrating the applicability of the theory to key questions such as measures of goodness of fit and the bootstrap.
