A summary of the most important properties of infinite sets of random variables, following Kolmogorov. The article constructs the Hilbert space corresponding to a given set of random variables with finite dispersions, discusses random functions and their simplest correlation properties, presents a new definition of the integral of a random function, defines the spectral representation of a random function, and considers applications of stationary random functions.
