In this book you will find the basics of probability theory and statistics. In addition, there are several topics that go somewhat beyond the basics but that ought to be present in an introductory course: simulation, the Poisson process, the law of large numbers, and the central limit theorem. Computers have brought many changes in statistics. The values of discrete and continuous random variables can be ambiguous. For example, if X is equal to the number of miles (to the nearest mile) you drive to work, then X is a discrete random variable. You count the miles. If X is the distance you drive to work, then you measure values of X and X is a continuous random variable. For a second example, if X is equal to the number of . Probability is an important and complex field of study. Fortunately, only a few basic issues in probability theory are essential for understanding statistics at the level covered in this book. These basic issues are covered in this chapter.   An Introduction to Probability and Statistics, Third Edition is an ideal reference and resource for scientists and engineers in the fields of statistics, mathematics, physics, industrial management, and engineering. The book is also an excellent text for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level students majoring in probability and statistics.

Introduction to Probability and Statistics for Engineers and Scientists, Fifth Edition is a proven text reference that provides a superior introduction to applied probability and statistics for engineering or science majors. The book lays emphasis in the manner in which probability yields insight into statistical problems, ultimately resulting in an intuitive understanding of the statistical. The book covers all areas in a typical introductory probability course. The course would be appropriate for seniors in mathematics or statistics or data science or computer science. It is also appropriate for first year graduate students in any of these fields. Accuracy rating: 5. The book is very accurate. Relevance/Longevity rating: /5(6). A First Course in Probability by Sheldon Ross is good. improve this answer. answered Apr 9 '11 at I second this, and would like to mention "Probability Theory: A Concise Course" by Y.A. Rozanov – grayQuant May 4 '15 at If anybody asks for a recommendation for an introductory probability book, then my suggestion would be the book. This book is an introduction to probability and mathematical statistics intended for students already having some elementary mathematical background. It is intended for a one-year junior or senior level undergraduate or beginning graduate course. ( views) Introduction to Probability, Statistics, and Random Processes.
