This textbook offers extra practice on topics such as bivariate random variables, joint distribution functions, moment generating functions, Poisson processes, Wiener processes, power spectral densities, and white noise.

You'll also get coverage of linear systems to random outputs, Fourier series and Karhunen-Love expansions, Fourier transform of random processes, parameter estimation, Bayes' estimation, and mean square estimation. Appropriate for the following courses: Probability, Random Processes, Stochastic Processes, Probability and Random Variables, Introduction to Probability and Statistics


-405 solved problems

-Additional material on distributions, the Markov Process, and Martingales

-Support for all the major textbooks for probability, variables, and processes courses

Topics include: Probability, Random Variables, Multiple Random Variables, Functions of Random Variables, Expectation, Limit Theorems, Random Processes, Analysis and Processing of Random Processes, Estimation Theory, Decision Theory, Queueing Theory

A great exercise textbook March 30, 2011
I wish I had this textbook when I was taking my probability courses. It presents concepts in a clear and understandable way, and the solved problems provide excellent guidance. After working through the solved examples, I finally had a better understanding of random variables, pdfs, cdfs, random processes, etc. I would strongly encourage solving as many problems as you can in this textbook as you are going through other texts or taking a class on this.
