Generating Functions in Probability

This expository paper contains content regarding generating functions in probability.

If you’re interested, here is the abstract:

We discuss the probability generating function as well as properties it has related to moments and radii of convergence. We also discuss the relation to moment generating functions as well as the applications of the probability generating function to topics such as random walks and inversions in permutations.
