An Introduction to Geometrical Probability: Distributional Aspects with Applications

Front Cover
CRC Press, Dec 1, 1999 - Mathematics - 576 pages
1 Review
A useful guide for researchers and professionals, graduate and senior undergraduate students, this book provides an in-depth look at applied and geometrical probability with an emphasis on statistical distributions.
A meticulous treatment of geometrical probability, kept at a level to appeal to a wider audience including applied researchers who will find the book to be both functional and practical with the large number of problems chosen from different disciplines
A few topics such as packing and covering problems that have a vast literature are introduced here at a peripheral level for the purpose of familiarizing readers who are new to the area of research.
