 Ross, Sheldon M.
 4th ed.  Amsterdam ; Boston : Academic Press, c2009.
 Description
 Book — xv, 664 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 25 cm. + 1 CDROM (4 3/4 in.)
 Summary

This updated text provides a superior introduction to applied probability and statistics for engineering or science majors. It 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, this text has tremendously clear exposition, plus realdata examples and exercises throughout the text. Numerous exercises, examples, and applications apply probability theory to everyday statistical problems and situations. New to the 4th Edition: new chapter on Simulation, Bootstrap Statistical Methods, and Permutation Tests; 20% new updated problem sets and applications, that demonstrate updated applications to engineering as well as biological, physical and computer science; new real data examples that use significant real data from actual studies across life science, engineering, computing and business; and, new end of chapter review material that emphasizes key ideas as well as the risks associated with practical application of the material.

It provides an introduction to elementary probability theory and stochastic processes, and shows how probability theory can be applied to the study of phenomena in fields such as engineering, computer science, management science, the physical and social sciences, and operations research. With the addition of several new sections relating to actuaries, this text is highly recommended by the Society of Actuaries. A new section (3.7) on COMPOUND RANDOM VARIABLES, that can be used to establish a recursive formula for computing probability mass functions for a variety of common compounding distributions. A new section (4.11) on HIDDDEN MARKOV CHAINS, including the forward and backward approaches for computing the joint probability mass function of the signals, as well as the Viterbi algorithm for determining the most likely sequence of states. Simplified Approach for Analyzing Nonhomogeneous Poisson processes Additional results on queues relating to the (a) conditional distribution of the number found by an M/M/1 arrival who spends a time t in the system; (b) inspection paradox for M/M/1 queues (c) M/G/1 queue with server breakdown Many new examples and exercises.
