This updated text provides a superior introduction to applied probability and statistics for engineering or science majors. Ross emphasizes the manner in which probability yields insight into statistical problems; ultimately resulting in an intuitive understanding of the statistical procedures most often used by practicing engineers and scientists. Real data sets are incorporated in a wide variety of exercises and examples throughout the book; and this emphasis on data motivates the probability coverage.
As with the previous editions; Ross’ text has remendously clear exposition; plus real-data examples and exercises throughout the text. Numerous exercises; examples; and applications apply probability theory to everyday statistical problems and situations.
