"... The authors have done a good job. The material is didactically well presented, and motivations are given before definitions are stated. MAPLE, a computer algebra system, is used to illustrate the mathematics and help readers understand the concepts. ..."

"... This book is valuable as supplementary text to introductions into probability theory."

"... The aim of the book is to supplement conventional mathematical textbooks on probability and stochastics. The book serves its purpose very well. ..."

"The book is based on measure theory which is introduced as smoothly as possible. It is intended for advanced undergraduate students or graduates, not necessarily in mathematics, providing an overview and intuitive background for more advanced studies as well as some practical skills in the use of MAPLE in the context of probability and applications. Although this book contains definitions and theorems, it differs from conventional mathematics books in its use of MAPLE worksheets instead of formal proofs to enable the reader to gain an intuitive understanding of the ideas under concern. As prerequisites the authors assume a familiarity with basic calculus and linear algebra, as well as with elementary ordinary differential equations and, in the final chapter, simple numerical methods for such ODEs."
