## An Introduction to Applied ProbabilityDesigned for a curriculum that contains only 2 single one-semester course on probability. Covers the core of probability theory, considers sums of random variables, derives sampling distributions, and discusses the approximation of distributions. Includes nonstatistical and statistical applications such as hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, and regression analysis. Numerous worked examples throughout the text illustrate the material and each chapter concludes with a number of problems. |
