The ebook Introduction to Probability offers an authoritative text that presents the main concepts and ideas; as well as the models; theoretical background; and applications of probability. The amazing authors—noted experts in the field—include a review of problems where probabilistic models naturally arise and discuss the methodology to tackle these problems.
A wide range of topics is covered that include the concepts of probability and conditional probability; univariate continuous distributions; univariate discrete distributions; along with a detailed presentation of the most important probability distributions used in practice; with their main properties and applications. Designed as a useful guide; the textbook contains a theory of probability; definitions; examples with solutions; charts; self-assessment exercises; computational exercises; illustrations; problems; and a glossary. This important textbook:
- Uses Mathematica software to illustrate the text’s computer exercises
- Features applications representing worldwide situations and processes
- Includes classroom-tested problems and solutions to probability exercises
- Highlights real-world exercises designed to make clear the concepts presented
- Offers two types of self-assessment exercises at the end of every chapter; so that college students may review the material in that chapter and monitor their progress.
Written for students majoring in engineering; statistics; computer science; physics; operations research; and mathematics; Introduction to Probability: Models and Applications is an accessible textbook that explores the basic concepts of probability and includes detailed information on models and applications.
