# Probability and its Applications for Engineers

CRC Press, Jun 26, 1992 - Technology & Engineering - 664 pages
Demonstrating that probability is an applied science useful to engineers and covering, in two parts, all of the material that most engineers will encounter in practice, self-study or graduate study, this book offers a thorough development of probability theory and shows how the theory can be adapted to solve practical problems.;Part 1 of Probability and its Applications for Engineers explicates the theory and illustrates its use with concrete examples from such topics as quality control/acceptance sampling, telephone network blocking, economics and inventory control, the use of moments, and the overly conscientious worker phenomenon.;Developing basic results to a high degree, and comprehensively enough to cope with real engineering tasks, Part II elaborates on practical applications of the theory in areas of interest to practising engineers. Beginning with an introduction to statistics, Part II provides concise, self-contained examinations of control charts, tolerancing, reliability, random processes and decision trees.;With end-of-chapter problem sets and answers, a bibliography and over 1100 display equations, Probability and its Applications for Engineers sets out to provide a resource for quality and reliability, mechanical, and electrical and electronics engineers, and upper-level undergraduate, graduate and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
