Designed for an intermediate undergraduate course, Probability and Statistics with R shows students how to solve various statistical problems using both parametric and nonparametric techniques via the open source software R. It provides numerous real-world examples, carefully explained proofs, end-of-chapter problems, and illuminating graphs to facilitate hands-on learning.
Integrating theory with practice, the text briefly introduces the syntax, structures, and functions of the S language, before covering important graphically and numerically descriptive methods. The next several chapters elucidate probability and random variables topics, including univariate and multivariate distributions. After exploring sampling distributions, the authors discuss point estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, and a wide range of nonparametric methods. With a focus on experimental design, the book also presents fixed- and random-effects models as well as randomized block and two-factor factorial designs. The final chapter describes simple and multiple regression analyses.
Demonstrating that R can be used as a powerful teaching aid, this comprehensive text presents extensive treatments of data analysis using parametric and nonparametric techniques. It effectively links statistical concepts with R procedures, enabling the application of the language to the vast world of statistics.

... This book covers a wide range of topics in both theoretical and applied statistics ... the authors list both R and S–PLUS commands and clearly note when a command is applicable only in either S–PLUS or R. Therefore, S–PLUS users also should find this book useful. Detailed executable codes and codes to generate the figures in each chapter are available online at http://www1.appstate.edu/~arnholta/PASWR/front.htm ... nicely blend[s] mathematical statistics, statistical inference, statistical methods, and computational statistics using S language ... . Students or self-learners can learn some basic techniques for using R in statistical analysis on their way to learning about various topics in probability and statistics. This book also could serve as a wonderful stand-alone textbook in probability and statistics if the computational statistics portions are skipped.
―Technometrics, May 2009, Vol. 51, No. 2
The book is comprehensive and well written. The notation is clear and the mathematical derivations behind nontrivial equations and computational implementations are carefully explained. Rather than presenting a collection of R scripts together with a summary of relevant theoretical results, this book offers a well-balanced mix of theory, examples and R code.
―Raquel Prado, University of California, Santa Cruz, The American Statistician, February 2009
... an impressive book ... Overall, this is a good reference book with comprehensive coverage of the details of statistical analysis and application that the social researcher may need in their work. I would recommend it as a useful addition to the bookshelf.
