9780128000410: Introduction to Probability

Introduction to Probability, Second Edition, is written for students in statistics, mathematics, engineering, computer science, operations research, actuarial science, biological sciences, economics, physics, and some of the social sciences with a background in a year-long elementary calculus, taking upper level or graduate level introduction to probability courses. Roussas utilizes his trademark clarity and economy of expression to elucidate important concepts of probability, while providing a plethora of useful examples and exercises of real world applications for students to consider. It includes text, examples, and graphical illustrations - where appropriate - to motivate the reader, and also demonstrate the applicability of probability in a great variety of human activities. It provides a mathematically relatively rigorous, yet accessible and always within the prescribed prerequisites, discussion of probability theory, important to students of all disciplines cited above. Each section provides relevant proofs and is followed by exercises and hints, providing useful clues to the solutions. It answers to even-numbered exercises are provided and detailed answers to all exercises are available to instructors on the book companion site.

Review:

the first seven chapters can be used as one term undergraduate course in probability. I am satisfied with the topics covered in each chapter and the order in which they are presented. Numerous solved examples and exercises are provided in each chapter. They support concepts well, and they are of high quality. The examples and exercises are carefully selected and are even better than many texts currently available in the marketI would be happy to adopt this book. -Subash Bagui Univ of West Florida "I feel this book covers the topics better and in a more easy to understand way with the conversational tone. There are a lot more examples and I like that the exercises are not too technologically dependent. I would definitely adopt this for my Intro Probability course. The first eight chapters are a perfect fit. ---Pat Goeters Auburn University
