Summary

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 applications apply 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 - Unique, easy-to-use software included: automates the computations required for the exercises - Updated statistical material - Careful development of probability, modeling, and statistical procedures leads to intuitive understanding
