Most widely held works by Edward Nelson
Radically elementary probability theory by Edward Nelson( Book )

15 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using only the very elementary framework of finite probability spaces, this book treats a number of topics in the modern theory of stochastic processes. This is made possible by using a small amount of Abraham Robinson's nonstandard analysis and not attempting to convert the results into conventional form
Dynamical theories of Brownian motion by Edward Nelson( Book )

37 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tensor analysis by Edward Nelson( Book )

22 editions published between 1967 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These notes are based on a course of lectures given by Professor Nelson at Princeton during the spring term of 1966. The subject of Brownian motion has long been of interest in mathematical probability. In these lectures, Professor Nelson traces the history of earlier work in Brownian motion, both the mathematical theory, and the natural phenomenon with its physical interpretations. He continues through recent dynamical theories of Brownian motion, and concludes with a discussion of the relevance of these theories to quantum field theory and quantum statistical mechanics.Originally published in 1967.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

Predicative arithmetic. (mn-32) : by Edward Nelson( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book develops arithmetic without the induction principle, working in theories that are interpretable in Raphael Robinson's theory Q. Certain inductive formulas, the bounded ones, are interpretable in Q.A mathematically strong, but logically very weak, predicative arithmetic is constructed. Originally published in 1986.
