Statistics and Probability for Engineering Applications provides a complete discussion of all the major topics typically covered in a college engineering statistics course. This textbook minimizes the derivations and mathematical theory, focusing instead on the information and techniques most needed and used in engineering applications. It is filled with practical techniques directly applicable on the job. Written by an experienced industry engineer and statistics professor, this book makes learning statistical methods easier for today's student.

This book can be read sequentially like a normal textbook, but it is designed to be used as a handbook, pointing the reader to the topics and sections pertinent to a particular type of statistical problem. Each new concept is clearly and briefly described, whenever possible by relating it to previous topics. Then the student is given carefully chosen examples to deepen understanding of the basic ideas and how they are applied in engineering. The examples and case studies are taken from real-world engineering problems and use real data. A number of practice problems are provided for each section, with answers in the back for selected problems.

This book will appeal to engineers in the entire engineering spectrum (electronics/electrical, mechanical, chemical, and civil engineering); engineering students and students taking computer science/computer engineering graduate courses; scientists needing to use applied statistical methods; and engineering technicians and technologists.



* Filled with practical techniques directly applicable on the job

* Contains hundreds of solved problems and case studies, using real data sets

* Avoids unnecessary theory

About the Author:

William DeCoursey, Ph.D., is a chemical engineer who has taught statistics and probability to engineering students for over 15 years at the University of Saskatchewan.

Review:

This introductory textbook on statistics and probability is aimed at two groups: practicing engineers in industries and engineering students at about the freshman/sophomore level. The material is explained in a very easy-to-understand manner with numerous worked-out examples. Many of the examples presented have an engineering flavor, which will appeal to the intended audience...An important feature of the book is its use of Microsoft Excel to do many statistical computations. The textbook is also accompanied by a CD-ROM containing all of the datasets used in the book and a fully searchable e-book version of the text in Adobe pdf format...Overall this is a good textbook. - Technometrics, August 2004
