This monograph provides a thorough, comprehensive investigation of the narrow topology on random probability measures on Polish spaces. As a special feature, the author makes no additional assumptions on the probability space in the background, such as completeness or a countable generated algebra. One of the main results presented is a direct proof of the random analog of the Prohorov theorem, which is obtained without invoking an embedding of the Polish space into a compact space. Random Probability Measures on Polish Spaces is a clear and incisive volume that will prove useful for graduate students and researchers in mathematical analysis and its applications.
