Probability and Statistics for Engineers and Scientists – Anthony J. Hayter – 4th Edition


PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS FOR ENGINEERS AND SCIENTISTS, Fourth Edition, continues the approach that has made previous editions successful. As a teacher and researcher at a premier school, author Tony Hayter is in touch with engineers daily – and understands their vocabulary.

The result of this familiarity with the professional community is a clear and readable writing style that readers understand and appreciate, as well as high-interest, relevant examples and data sets that hold readers’ attention. A flexible approach to the use of tools includes tips for using various software packages as well as output (using MINITAB and other programs) that offers in interpreting output. Extensive use of examples and data sets illustrates the importance of statistical data collection and for in a variety of engineering areas as well as in , chemistry, computing, , management, and .
