The new edition of Ross's bestseller for engineers and scientists, featuring famously clear exposition and examples

Reviews fundamental concepts and applications of probability and statistics. After a general overview, it considers special types of random variables, using examples which illustrate their wide variety of applications. Also examines their calculation and presents computer programs that calculate the probability distribution, and the inverses of binomial, poisson, normal, t, F, and Chi-square distributions. Coverage includes such topics as the sample mean, sample variance, sample median, as well as histograms, empirical distribution functions, and stem-and-leaf plots. A program for computing sample mean and sample variance for a given data set is included. A diskette of 35 programs for the IBM PC is available, giving exact answers or approximations where appropriate.
