Introduction to Probability and Statistics for Engineers and Scientists

This updated text provides a superior introduction to applied probability and statistics for engineering or science majors. Ross emphasizes the manner in which probability yields insight into statistical problems; ultimately resulting in an intuitive understanding of the statistical procedures most often used by practicing engineers and scientists. Real data sets are incorporated in a wide variety of exercises and examples throughout the book, and this emphasis on data motivates the probability coverage.As with the previous editions, Ross' text has remendously clear exposition, plus real-data examples and exercises throughout the text. Numerous exercises, examples, and applicationsapply probability theory to everyday statistical problems and situations. Also Available: Student Solutions Manual for Introduction to Probability and Statistics for Engineers and Scientists, 4e ISBN:9780123705280

Primary audience is undergraduates/graduate students in engineering and the sciences
