Elementary Applications of Probability Theory; 2nd Edition; (PDF) provides a simple and straightforward introduction to applications of probability theory with examples given in the biological sciences and engineering.
The first chapter includes a summary of the basic probability theory. Chapters two to five covers random variables and their applications. Topics covered include geometric probability; reliability theory; and computer simulation; estimation of animal and plant populations. Chapter six contains a clear account of the convergence of sequences of random variables; with a focus on the central limit theorem and the weak law of numbers. The next four chapters introduce random processes; including random walks and Markov chains shown by examples in population genetics and population growth.
This edition also has two chapters that introduce; in a conclusively readable fashion; the topic of stochastic differential equations and their applications.
