Probability: An Introduction provides the fundamentals, requiring minimal algebraic skills from the student. It begins with an introduction to sets and set operations, progresses to counting techniques, and then presents probability in an axiomatic way, never losing sight of elucidating the subject through concrete examples. The book contains numerous examples and solved exercises taken from various fields, and includes computer explorations using Maple.
