Probability and Random Variables

Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)

Abstract

Probability is a rich and beautiful subject, a discipline unto itself. Its origins were concerned primarily with games of chance, and many lectures on elementary probability theory still contain references to dice, playing cards, and coin flips. These lottery-style scenarios remain useful because they are evocative and easy to understand.
