Some Motivating Examples 2. The Best Books of Conditional Probability and Independence 5. Some Special Distributions 7. This book will be of interest to upper level undergraduate students and graduate level students in statistics, mathematics, engineering, computer science, operations research, actuarial science, biological sciences, economics, physics, and some of the social sciences.

I would be happy to adopt this book. I would definitely adopt this for my Intro Probability course. Table of contents Preface 1. Roussas was an associate editor of four journals since their inception, and is now a member of the Editorial Board of the journal Statistical Inference for Stochastic Processes.

The writing is clear and concise. Looking for beautiful books? The first eight chapters are a perfect roussaz. This one-semester basic probability textbook explains important concepts of probability while providing useful exercises and examples of real world applications for students to consider.

Readers should be comfortable with multiple integrals and, in spots, a little linear algebra.

After introducing fundamental probability concepts, the book proceeds to topics including conditional probability and independence; numerical characteristics of a random variable; special distributions; joint probability density function of two random variables and related quantities; joint moment generating function, covariance and correlation coefficient of two random variables; transformation of ingroduction variables; the Weak Law of Large Numbers; the Central Limit Theorem; and statistical inference.


Roussas earned a B. This edition demonstrates ijtroduction applicability of probability to many human activities with examples and illustrations.
