Probability with Statistical Applications (Hardback)Rinaldo B. Schinazi (author)
- We can order this
This second edition textbook offers a practical introduction to probability for undergraduates at all levels with different backgrounds and views towards applications. Calculus is a prerequisite for understanding the basic concepts, however the book is written with a sensitivity to students' common difficulties with calculus that does not obscure the thorough treatment of the probability content. The first six chapters of this text neatly and concisely cover the material traditionally required by most undergraduate programs for a first course in probability.
The comprehensive text includes a multitude of new examples and exercises, and careful revisions throughout. Particular attention is given to the expansion of the last three chapters of the book with the addition of one entirely new chapter (9) on 'Finding and Comparing Estimators.' The classroom-tested material presented in this second edition forms the basis for a second course introducing mathematical statistics.

From the reviews of the second edition:
"This book is based on material to be presented in a first one-semester introductory course on probability theory (with applications in statistics) for engineering, physics, computer science or mathematics students. ... each section is closed by a list of exercises and further exercises are given at the end of each chapter reveweing the topics discussed so far." (Martin Riedler, zbMATH, Vol. 1276, 2014)
"The book covers a number of selected topics in probability suitable for a semester course in the subject, and contains chapters studying statistical applications of the theory. ... The selection of main topics is similar to what one finds in the classic books. ... I recommend this book for first and second semester of an undergraduate course in probability and statistics. In addition, instructors teaching such a course will find some very good examples and exercises for classroom use." (Mehdi Hassani, The Mathematical Association of America, April, 2012)
