I have retired from refereeing papers and writing recommandation letters.

Become RICH with my prizes

I have written a new edition of my 2014 book "Upper and Lower Bounds for Stochastic Processes". This is a MAJOR remodeling, and many 30+ years problems have been solved. You may find the begining here .

If you are desperate to get my books and your library can't afford them, try to type the words "library genesis" in a search engine. However much I desagree with piracy, this site can be very useful, at least until our libraries carry electronic versions of older books.

The Ledoux-Talagrand book has been reprinted in the affordable series Classics in Mathematics. Still Springer-Verlag has most generously agreed that I distribute the file below. This is the file of a preliminary version, and the references are missing. Use it at your own risk: Probability in Banach Spaces.

In my youth I have published some papers in the Bulletin des Sciences Mathematiques, of which there does not exist an electronic version. You may find several of them here: Papers in Bull. Sci. Math.

It is AGAINST MY WILL that Springer keeps selling my 2005 book "The Generic Chaining". A much nicer version of this material is available in the new edition of my 2014 book "Upper and Lower Bounds for Stochastic Processes".
