A First Course in Probability, Fourth Edition, thoroughly presents the mathematics of probability theory as well as the many diverse applications of the subject. Fundamental concepts such as the principles of combinational analysis, key to computing probabilities, and the axioms of probability theory are thoroughly covered early on. The author's concise writing style and refined textual organization covers topics such as conditional probability and independence of events, conditioning, expectation, and discrete, continuous, and jointly distributed random variables with unparalleled clarity. Interesting exercises and numerous worked examples solidly reinforce concepts.
