Applied Probability and Statistics (Hardback)Mario Lefebvre (author)
- We can order this
This book moves systematically through the topic of applied probability 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. Each chapter concludes with many original, solved and unsolved problems and hundreds of multiple choice questions, enabling those unfamiliar with the topics to master them. Additionally appealing are historical notes on the mathematicians mentioned throughout, and a useful bibliography. A distinguishing character of the book is its thorough and succinct handling of the varied topics.

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)
