This comprehensive textbook provides an introduction to statistical methods for graduate engineers-offering thorough coverage of important probability-related topics to aid in product and system design, reliability engineering, quality control, and more. It introduces engineers to abstract concepts in mathematical stochastic processes and probability theory and covers topics such as coin tossing, simulation of random phenomena, brownian motion, white noise, and kalman filtering.
