Counterexamples in Algebraic Probability Theory

  • András Zempléni


The aim of this paper is to present some results concerning algebraic probability theory introduced by I.Z.Ruzsa and G.J.Székely [5] which show that some of the results in [5] and [8] cannot be generalized without any further assumptions.
