# Probability and Statistics

Addison-Wesley, 2002 - Mathematics - 816 pages

The revision of this well-respected text presents a balanced approach of the classical and Bayesian methods and now includes a new chapter on simulation (including Markov chain Monte Carlo and the Bootstrap), expanded coverage of residual analysis in linear models, and more examples using real data. Probability & Statisticswas written for a one or two semester probability and statistics course offered primarily at four-year institutions and taken mostly by sophomore and junior level students, majoring in mathematics or statistics. Calculus is a prerequisite, and a familiarity with the concepts and elementary properties of vectors and matrices is a plus.

Introduction to Probability; Conditional Probability; Random Variables and Distribution; Expectation; Special Distributions; Estimation; Sampling Distributions of Estimators; Testing Hypotheses; Categorical Data and Nonparametric Methods; Linear Statistical Models; Simulation

For all readers interested in probability and statistics.

User Review  - Ben - Goodreads

Best book I have read on both subjects. Just the right amount of math for someone that knows calc (doesn't need a hand held), but isn't a mathematicians (very simple proofs). Read full review
