This introduction presents the mathematical theory of probability for readers in the fields of engineering and the sciences who possess knowledge of elementary calculus. Includes a software diskette, referenced in the book and packaged with each copy, that provides an easy-to-use tool for readers to derive probabilities for binomial. Presents new examples and exercises throughout. Offers a new section that presents an elegant way of computing the moments of random variables defined as the number of events that occur. Gives applications to binomial, hypergeometric, and negative hypergeometric random variables, as well as random variables resulting from coupon collecting and match models. Provides additional results on inclusion-exclusion identity, Poisson paradigm, multinomial distribution, and bivariate normal distribution A useful reference for engineering and science professionals.Ross, Sheldon M. is the author of 'First Course in Probability', published 2005 under ISBN 9780131856622 and ISBN 0131856626.
