Roussas's Introduction to Probability features exceptionally clear explanations of the mathematics of probability theory and explores its diverse applications through numerous interesting and motivational examples. It provides a thorough introduction to the subject for professionals and advanced students taking their first course in probability. , we suppose that the random variables are equally likely to take on any of m possible values, and compute an expression for the mean time until a run of m dis-tinct values occurs. In Section , we suppose the random variables are continuous and derive an expression for the mean time until a run of m consecutive increasing values occurs.

Publisher Summary. This chapter discusses random variables and their probability distributions. A random variable X = X (ω) is a function defined on Ω which assumes only finite values and has the property that the set of simple events ω for which X (ω) ≤ x is an event for any real definition of a random variable enables the introduction of the probability that . Probability Distributions of Discrete Random Variables. A typical example for a discrete random variable \(D\) is the result of a dice roll: in terms of a random experiment this is nothing but randomly selecting a sample of size \(1\) from a set of numbers which are mutually exclusive outcomes. Here, the sample space is \(\{1,2,3,4,5,6\}\) and we can think of many different .

there are many excellent books on probability theory and random processes. However, we ﬂnd that these texts are too demanding for the level of the course. On the other hand, books written for the engineering students tend to be fuzzy in their attempt to avoid subtle mathematical concepts. As a result, we always end up having to complement the.

After an elementary discussion of chance, Stirzaker sets out the central and crucial rules and ideas of probability including independence and conditioning.4/5(2). These topics include transforms, sums of random variables, least squares estimation, the bivariate normal distribution, and a fairly detailed introduction to Bernoulli, Poisson, and Markov processes.

The book strikes a balance between simplicity in exposition and sophistication in analytical reasoning/5(23). Book Features. The 2nd Edition includes two new chapters with a thorough coverage of the central ideas of Bayesian and classical statistics.

Develops the basic concepts of probability, random variables, stochastic processes, laws of large numbers, and the central limit theorem.

Illustrates the theory with many examples. The book can serve as an introduction of the probability theory to engineering students and it supplements the continuous and discrete signals and systems course to provide a practical perspective of signal and noise, which is important for upper level courses such as the classic control theory and communication system design/5(6).

Anyone writing a probability text today owes a great debt to William Feller, who taught us all how to make probability come alive as a subject matter.

If you ﬂnd an example, an application, or an exercise that you really like, it probably had its origin in Feller’s classic text, An Introduction to Probability Theory and Its Applications.
