## An Introduction to Geometrical Probability: Distributional Aspects with ApplicationsA 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. |
