From the reviews:
“This textbook is appropriate for an undergraduate level course on probability theory and introductory statistics for an engineering department. The book can be recommended as a one- or two-semester undergraduate course book and also as a supplementary textbook for different advanced statistical courses. … The sections at the end of chapters contain exercises, problems and multiple choice questions. The style and contents of the book are well organized and make it easy to read.” (Fazil A. Aliev, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2007 b)
From the Back Cover
This text is designed for a one-semester course on Probability and Statistics. The exposition unfolds systematically from an introductory chapter to such topics as random variables and vectors, stochastic processes, estimation, testing and regression. The topics are well chosen and the presentation is enriched by many examples from real life. Following every chapter, the reader will find many original, solved and unsolved problems and hundreds of multiple choice questions, enabling those unfamiliar with the topics to master them. Additionally appealing are the interesting historical notes on the mathematicians mentioned throughout and a useful bibliography. A distinguishing character of the book is the thorough and succinct handling of the various topics.
This book assumes a basic knowledge of differential and integral calculus. Whether in a classroom setting or for self-study, this textbook will benefit students in applied mathematics, engineering, computer science and in the applied sciences in general.
A separate solutions manual is available to instructors.
