Introduction to Probability
Throughout his career, Roussas served as Dean, Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Chancellor at two universities; also, he served as an Associate Dean at UC-Davis, helping to transform that institution’s statistical unit into one of national and international renown. The first eight chapters are a perfect fit.
Roussas was an associate editor of four journals since their inception, and is now a member of the Editorial Board of the journal Statistical Inference for Stochastic Processes. I would be happy to adopt this book. He is a Fellow of the following professional societies: This edition demonstrates the applicability of probability to many human activities with examples and illustrations. After introducing fundamental probability concepts, the book proceeds to topics including conditional probability and independence; numerical characteristics of a random variable; special distributions; joint probability density function of two random variables and related quantities; joint moment generating function, covariance and correlation coefficient of two random variables; transformation of random variables; the Weak Law of Large Numbers; the Central Limit Theorem; and statistical inference.
Some Fundamental Concepts 3. Independence of Random Variables and Some Applications The Concept of Probability and Basic Results 4. Some Special Distributions 7. This book will be of interest to upper level undergraduate students and graduate level students in statistics, mathematics, engineering, computer science, operations research, actuarial science, biological sciences, economics, physics, and some of the social sciences.
Answers to even-numbered exercises are given and detailed answers to all exercises are available to instructors on the book companion site.
