An Introduction to Probability and Mathematical Statistics provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of probability and mathematical statistics. This book covers a variety of topics, including random variables, probability distributions, discrete distributions, and point estimation. Organized into 13 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the definition of function. This text then examines the notion of conditional or relative probability. Other chapters consider Cochran's theorem, which is of extreme importance in that part of statistical inference known as analysis of variance. This book discusses as well the fundamental principles of testing statistical hypotheses by providing the reader with an idea of the basic problem and its relation to practice. The final chapter deals with the problem of estimation and the Neyman theory of confidence intervals. This book is a valuable resource for undergraduate university students who are majoring in mathematics. Students who are majoring in physics and who are inclined toward abstract mathematics will also find this book useful.

Probability and Mathematical Statistics: An Introduction provides a well-balanced first introduction to probability theory and mathematical statistics. This book is organized into two sections encompassing nine chapters. The first part deals with the concept and elementary properties of probability space, and random variables and their probability distributions. This part also considers the principles of limit theorems, the distribution of random variables, and the so-called student’s distribution. The second part explores pertinent topics in mathematical statistics, including the concept of sampling, estimation, and hypotheses testing. This book is intended primarily for undergraduate statistics students.

Now in its second edition, this textbook serves as an introduction to probability and statistics for non-mathematics majors who do not need the exhaustive detail and mathematical depth provided in more comprehensive treatments of the subject. The presentation covers the mathematical laws of random phenomena, including discrete and continuous random variables, expectation and variance, and common probability distributions such as the binomial, Poisson, and normal distributions. More classical examples such as Montmort's problem, the ballot problem, and Bertrand’s paradox are now included, along with applications such as the Maxwell-Boltzmann and Bose-Einstein distributions in physics. Key features in new edition: * 35 new exercises * Expanded section on the algebra of sets * Expanded chapters on probabilities to include more classical examples * New section on regression * Online instructors' manual containing solutions to all exercises“/p> Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in computer science, engineering, and other natural and social sciences with only a basic background in calculus will benefit from this introductory text balancing theory with applications. Review of the first edition: This textbook is a classical and well-written introduction to probability theory and statistics. ... the book is written ‘for an audience such as computer science students, whose mathematical background is not very strong and who do not need the detail and mathematical depth of similar books written for mathematics or statistics majors.’ ... Each new concept is clearly explained and is followed by many detailed examples. ... numerous examples of calculations are given and proofs are well-detailed."

The theory of probability and mathematical statistics is becoming an indispensable discipline in many branches of science and engineering. This is caused by increasing significance of various uncertainties affecting performance of complex technological systems. Fundamental concepts and procedures used in analysis of these systems are often based on the theory of probability and mathematical statistics. The book sets out fundamental principles of the probability theory, supplemented by theoretical models of random variables, evaluation of experimental data, sampling theory, distribution updating and tests of statistical hypotheses. Basic concepts of Bayesian approach to probability and two-dimensional random variables, are also covered. Examples of reliability analysis and risk assessment of technological systems are used throughout the book to illustrate basic theoretical concepts and their applications. The primary audience for the book includes undergraduate and graduate students of science and engineering, scientific workers and engineers and specialists in the field of reliability analysis and risk assessment. Except basic knowledge of undergraduate mathematics no special prerequisite is required.

Die Frage nach dem Aufgabenkreis der Statistik im allgemeinen kann nicht mit wenigen Worten umrissen werden. Wenn man etwas näher auf die geschichtliche Entwicklung des Begriffes Statistik eingeht\ so findet man, daß lange Zeit darunter nur die Beschrei bung von "Staatsmerkwürdigkeiten" (wie Bevölkerungszahl, Bo denbeschaffenheit, Sammlung wirtschaftlicher Daten) verstanden wurde. Erst in neuerer Zeit drang die statistische Betrachtungsweise auch in die Naturwissenschaften ein (BOLTZMANN, GIBBS, MAx WELL). Fußend auf dem Boden der seit Beginn dieses Jahrhunderts sich rasch entwickelnden Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie hat dann ins besondere in den letzten dreißig Jahren auch die mathematische Statistik einen unerhörten Aufschwung genommen und die Metho den der statistischen Analyse mit einer kaum zu übersehenden Fülle von Gedanken bereichert. Statistische Überlegungen treten heute in den verschiedensten Wissensgebieten auf. Es genügt, wenn wir neben den Wirtschaftswissenschaften als Beispiele die Astronomie, die Biologie, die Medizin, die Psychologie, die Physik und die Soziologie anführen. Wenn es also, wie gesagt, nicht leicht ist, den allgemeinen Be griff der Statistik kurz zu charakterisieren, so geht man doch wohl nicht fehl, wenn man feststellt, daß sich die Statistik mit dem Studium von Erscheinungen befaßt, die entweder eine große Zahl von Individuen betreffen, oder sonst in irgendeiner Weise eine Viel falt von Einzelerscheinungen zusammenfassen. Man kann somit als ein Charakteristikum der Statistik das Studium der Massen erscheinungen betrachten. Es ist eine Erfahrungstatsache, daß bei Massenerscheinungen Gesetzmäßigkeiten nachgewiesen werden können, die bei Einzelerscheinungen kein Gegenstück haben. Das 1 Vgl. W.
