Introduction to Probability : George G. Roussas :
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.
Product details Format Hardback pages Dimensions x x Answers to even-numbered exercises are given and detailed answers to all exercises are available to instructors on the book companion site. There are a lot more examples and I like that the exercises are not too technologically dependent. Independence of Random Variables and Some Applications The first eight chapters are a perfect fit.
Numerical Characteristics of a Random Variable 6. 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. Some Motivating Examples 2.
Looking for beautiful books? Throughout his career, Roussas served as Dean, Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Chancellor at two universities; also, he served as an Associate Dean at UC-Davis, helping to transform that institution’s statistical unit into inhroduction of national and international renown. Each section provides relevant proofs, followed by exercises and useful hints. The writing is clear and concise. Conditional Probability and Independence 5.
Introduction to Probability
They support concepts well, and they are of high quality.
I would definitely adopt this for my Intro Probability course. I am satisfied with the topics covered in each chapter and the order in which they are presented.
He is a Fellow of the following professional societies: Some Special Distributions 7. The Best Books of Roussas earned a Roussad.
Numerous solved examples and exercises are provided in each chapter. Roussas has been honored with a Festschrift, and he has given featured interviews for the Statistical Science and the Statistical Periscope.
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 random variables; the Weak Law of Large Numbers; the Central Limit Theorem; and statistical inference.
