An Introduction to Probability and Mathematical Statistics provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of probability and mathematical statistics. This book covers a variety of topics, including random variables, probability distributions, discrete distributions, and point estimation. Organized into 13 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the definition of function. This text then examines the notion of conditional or relative probability. Other chapters consider Cochran's theorem, which is of extreme importance in that part of statistical inference known as analysis of variance. This book discusses as well the fundamental principles of testing statistical hypotheses by providing the reader with an idea of the basic problem and its relation to practice. The final chapter deals with the problem of estimation and the Neyman theory of confidence intervals. This book is a valuable resource for undergraduate university students who are majoring in mathematics. Students who are majoring in physics and who are inclined toward abstract mathematics will also find this book useful.

Now in its second edition, this textbook serves as an introduction to probability and statistics for non-mathematics majors who do not need the exhaustive detail and mathematical depth provided in more comprehensive treatments of the subject. The presentation covers the mathematical laws of random phenomena, including discrete and continuous random variables, expectation and variance, and common probability distributions such as the binomial, Poisson, and normal distributions. More classical examples such as Montmort's problem, the ballot problem, and Bertrand’s paradox are now included, along with applications such as the Maxwell-Boltzmann and Bose-Einstein distributions in physics. Key features in new edition: * 35 new exercises * Expanded section on the algebra of sets * Expanded chapters on probabilities to include more classical examples * New section on regression * Online instructors' manual containing solutions to all exercises“/p> Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in computer science, engineering, and other natural and social sciences with only a basic background in calculus will benefit from this introductory text balancing theory with applications. Review of the first edition: This textbook is a classical and well-written introduction to probability theory and statistics. ... the book is written ‘for an audience such as computer science students, whose mathematical background is not very strong and who do not need the detail and mathematical depth of similar books written for mathematics or statistics majors.’ ... Each new concept is clearly explained and is followed by many detailed examples. ... numerous examples of calculations are given and proofs are well-detailed."

Statistics is the science that focuses on drawing conclusions from data, by modeling and analyzing the data using probabilistic models. In An Introduction to Mathematical Statistics the authors describe key concepts from statistics and give a mathematical basis for important statistical methods. Much attention is paid to the sound application of those methods to data. The three main topics in statistics are estimators, tests, and confidence regions. The authors illustrate these in many examples, with a separate chapter on regression models, including linear regression and analysis of variance. They also discuss the optimality of estimators and tests, as well as the selection of the best-fitting model. Each chapter ends with a case study in which the described statistical methods are applied. This book assumes a basic knowledge of probability theory, calculus, and linear algebra.

This book provides an introduction to elementary probability and to Bayesian statistics using de Finetti's subjectivist approach. One of the features of this approach is that it does not require the introduction of sample space – a non-intrinsic concept that makes the treatment of elementary probability unnecessarily complicate – but introduces as fundamental the concept of random numbers directly related to their interpretation in applications. Events become a particular case of random numbers and probability a particular case of expectation when it is applied to events. The subjective evaluation of expectation and of conditional expectation is based on an economic choice of an acceptable bet or penalty. The properties of expectation and conditional expectation are derived by applying a coherence criterion that the evaluation has to follow. The book is suitable for all introductory courses in probability and statistics for students in Mathematics, Informatics, Engineering, and Physics.

Die Frage nach dem Aufgabenkreis der Statistik im allgemeinen kann nicht mit wenigen Worten umrissen werden. Wenn man etwas näher auf die geschichtliche Entwicklung des Begriffes Statistik eingeht\ so findet man, daß lange Zeit darunter nur die Beschrei bung von "Staatsmerkwürdigkeiten" (wie Bevölkerungszahl, Bo denbeschaffenheit, Sammlung wirtschaftlicher Daten) verstanden wurde. Erst in neuerer Zeit drang die statistische Betrachtungsweise auch in die Naturwissenschaften ein (BOLTZMANN, GIBBS, MAx WELL). Fußend auf dem Boden der seit Beginn dieses Jahrhunderts sich rasch entwickelnden Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie hat dann ins besondere in den letzten dreißig Jahren auch die mathematische Statistik einen unerhörten Aufschwung genommen und die Metho den der statistischen Analyse mit einer kaum zu übersehenden Fülle von Gedanken bereichert. Statistische Überlegungen treten heute in den verschiedensten Wissensgebieten auf. Es genügt, wenn wir neben den Wirtschaftswissenschaften als Beispiele die Astronomie, die Biologie, die Medizin, die Psychologie, die Physik und die Soziologie anführen. Wenn es also, wie gesagt, nicht leicht ist, den allgemeinen Be griff der Statistik kurz zu charakterisieren, so geht man doch wohl nicht fehl, wenn man feststellt, daß sich die Statistik mit dem Studium von Erscheinungen befaßt, die entweder eine große Zahl von Individuen betreffen, oder sonst in irgendeiner Weise eine Viel falt von Einzelerscheinungen zusammenfassen. Man kann somit als ein Charakteristikum der Statistik das Studium der Massen erscheinungen betrachten. Es ist eine Erfahrungstatsache, daß bei Massenerscheinungen Gesetzmäßigkeiten nachgewiesen werden können, die bei Einzelerscheinungen kein Gegenstück haben. Das 1 Vgl. W.

Probability Theory, Theory of Random Processes and Mathematical Statistics are important areas of modern mathematics and its applications. They develop rigorous models for a proper treatment for various 'random' phenomena which we encounter in the real world. They provide us with numerous tools for an analysis, prediction and, ultimately, control of random phenomena. Statistics itself helps with choice of a proper mathematical model (e.g., by estimation of unknown parameters) on the basis of statistical data collected by observations. This volume is intended to be a concise textbook for a graduate level course, with carefully selected topics representing the most important areas of modern Probability, Random Processes and Statistics. The first part (Ch. 1-3) can serve as a self-contained, elementary introduction to Probability, Random Processes and Statistics. It contains a number of relatively sim ple and typical examples of random phenomena which allow a natural introduction of general structures and methods. Only knowledge of elements of real/complex analysis, linear algebra and ordinary differential equations is required here. The second part (Ch. 4-6) provides a foundation of Stochastic Analysis, gives information on basic models of random processes and tools to study them. Here a familiarity with elements of functional analysis is necessary. Our intention to make this course fast-moving made it necessary to present important material in a form of examples.
