## An Introduction to Mathematical Statistics and Its Applications, Volume 1For courses in Mathematical Statistics. Renowned for its high-quality, real-world case studies and examples, this highly structured text is designed to allow students with an established mathematics background to pursue a more rigorous, advanced treatment of probability and statistics. It shows HOW to use statistical methods, WHEN to use them, and reinforces the calculus that students have covered in previous courses. *Cover pages include a chart of densities, moments, and moment generating functions. *Additional simulations and Monte Carlo studies. *Minitab sections - At the end of chapters. *Delineates how one experimental design differs from another and the statistical consequences of those differences. *A complete Solutions Manual in response to user demand. *Uses case studies and practical worked-out examples to motivate statistical reasoning and demonstrate the application of statistical methods to a wide variety of real-world situations. |
