We construct a family of probability measures on a configuration space associated with Fredholm determinants for symmetric integral operators. For these probability measures we show basic limit theorems (law of large numbers, central limit theorem and large deviation.) Also we deal with shift dynamical systems naturally corresponding to these probability measures on Z 1 and investigate their ergodic properties.
