About this book
Introduction
Now in its second edition, this textbook serves as an introduction to probability and statistics for nonmathematics majors who do not need the exhaustive detail and mathematical depth provided in more comprehensive treatments of the subject. The presentation covers the mathematical laws of random phenomena, including discrete and continuous random variables, expectation and variance, and common probability distributions such as the binomial, Poisson, and normal distributions. More classical examples such as Montmort's problem, the ballot problem, and Bertrand’s paradox are now included, along with applications such as the MaxwellBoltzmann and BoseEinstein distributions in physics.
Key features in new edition:
* 35 new exercises* Expanded section on the algebra of sets
* Expanded chapters on probabilities to include more classical examples
* New section on regression
* Online instructors' manual containing solutions to all exercises
