For one- or two-semester courses in Probability, Probability & Statistics, or Mathematical Statistics.


An authoritative introduction to an in-demand field

Advances in computing technology – particularly in science and business – have increased the need for more statistical scientists to examine the huge amount of data being collected. Written by veteran statisticians,  Probability and Statistical Inference, 10th Edition emphasizes the existence of variation in almost every process, and how the study of probability and statistics helps us understand this variation. 

 

This applied introduction to probability and statistics reinforces basic mathematical concepts with numerous real-world examples and applications to illustrate the relevance of key concepts. It is designed for a two-semester course, but it can be adapted for a one-semester course. A good calculus background is needed, but no previous study of probability or statistics is required.

About the Author:

Robert V. Hogg (deceased), Professor Emeritus of Statistics at the University of Iowa since 2001, received his B.A. in mathematics at the University of Illinois and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics, specializing in actuarial sciences and statistics, from the University of Iowa. Known for his gift of humor and his passion for teaching, Hogg had far-reaching influence in the field of statistics. Throughout his career, Hogg played a major role in defining statistics as a unique academic field, and he almost literally "wrote the book" on the subject. He wrote more than 70 research articles and co-authored four books, including  Introduction of Mathematical Statistics, 6th Edition with J. W. McKean and  A.T. Craig;  Applied Statistics for Engineers and Physical Scientists, 3rd Edition with J. Ledolter; and A Brief Course in Mathematical Statistics, 1st Edition with E.A. Tanis. His texts have become classroom standards used by hundreds of thousands of students.

 

Among the many awards he received for distinction in teaching, Hogg was honored at the national level (the Mathematical Association of America Award for Distinguished Teaching), the state level (the Governor's Science Medal for Teaching), and the university level (Collegiate Teaching Award). His important contributions to statistical research have been acknowledged by his election to fellowship standing in the ASA and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.

 

Elliot Tanis, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Hope College, received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Iowa. Tanis is the co-author of A Brief Course in Mathematical Statistics with R. Hogg and Probability and Statistics: Explorations with MAPLE, 2nd Edition with Z. Karian. He has authored over 30 publications on statistics and is a past chairman and governor of the Michigan MAA, which presented him with both its Distinguished Teaching and Distinguished Service Awards.  He taught at Hope for 35 years and in 1989 received the HOPE Award (Hope's Outstanding Professor Educator) for his excellence in teaching.  In addition to his academic interests, Dr. Tanis is also an avid tennis player and devoted Hope sports fan.

 

Dale Zimmerman is the Robert V. Hogg Professor in the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at the University of Iowa.
