Beginning with the historical background of probability theory, this thoroughly revised text examines all important aspects of mathematical probability - including random variables, probability distributions, characteristic and generating functions, stochatic convergence, and limit theorems - and provides an introduction to various types of statistical problems, covering the broad range of statistical inference. Requiring a prerequisite in calculus for complete understanding of the topics discussed, the Second Edition contains new material on: univariate distributions; multivariate distributions; large-sample methods; decision theory; and applications of ANOVA. A primary text for a year-long undergraduate course in statistics (but easily adapted for a one-semester course in probability only), "Introduction to Probability and Statistics" is for undergraduate students in a wide range of disciplines-statistics, probability, mathematics, social science, economics, engineering, agriculture, biometry, and education.
