A Modern Introduction to Probability and Statistics: by Frederik Michel Dekking, Cornelis Kraaikamp, Hendrik Paul

By Frederik Michel Dekking, Cornelis Kraaikamp, Hendrik Paul Lopuhaä, Ludolf Erwin Meester (auth.)

Probability and facts are studied by way of so much technological know-how scholars, often as a moment- or third-year path. Many present texts within the zone are only cookbooks and, consequently, scholars don't know why they practice the tools they're taught, or why the tools paintings. The power of this publication is that it readdresses those shortcomings; through the use of examples, frequently from real-life and utilizing actual info, the authors can exhibit how the basics of probabilistic and statistical theories come up intuitively. It presents a attempted and verified, self-contained path, which may even be used for self-study.

A smooth creation to likelihood and records has a variety of fast workouts to offer direct suggestions to the scholars. moreover the publication comprises over 350 workouts, half that have solutions, of which part have complete recommendations. an internet site at www.springeronline.com/1-85233-896-2 offers entry to the information records utilized in the textual content, and, for teachers, the rest options. the one pre-requisite for the ebook is a primary direction in calculus; the textual content covers regular facts and likelihood fabric, and develops past conventional parametric types to the Poisson method, and directly to valuable sleek tools comparable to the bootstrap.

This might be a key textual content for undergraduates in desktop technology, Physics, arithmetic, Chemistry, Biology and company stories who're learning a mathematical statistics path, and likewise for extra extensive engineering facts classes for undergraduates in all engineering subjects.
