Many of the traditional and older advanced texts do not cover the newer topics in probability such as Paretian distribution and noncentral distributions and saddlepoint approximation.
Other advanced topics cover the ideas of nesting, generalizing, asymmetric extensions and mixtures; the stable Paretian distribution, with emphasis on its computation, basic properties, and uses; the (generalized) inverse Gaussian and (generalized) hyperbolic distributions, and their connections; and noncentral distributions and quadratic forms.
