The subject of this book is a new direction in the field ofprobability theory and mathematical statistics which can becalled "stability theory": it deals with evaluating theeffects of perturbing initial probabilistic models andembraces quite varied subtopics: limit theorems, queueingmodels, statistical inference, probability metrics, etc. Thecontributions are original research articles developing newideas and methods of stability analysis.
