Overview

Many mathematical statistics texts are heavily oriented toward a rigorous mathematical development of probability and statistics, without emphasizing contemporary statistical practice. MODERN MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS WITH APPLICATIONS strikes a balance between mathematical foundations and statistical practice. Accomplished authors Jay Devore and Ken Berk first engage students with real-life problems and scenarios and then provide them with both foundational context and theory. This book follows the spirit of the Committee on the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics (CUPM) recommendation that every math student should study statistics and probability with an emphasis on data analysis.

Meet the Author

Jay Devore earned his undergraduate degree in Engineering Science from the University of California at Berkeley, spent a year at the University of Sheffield in England, and finished his Ph.D. in statistics at Stanford University. He previously taught at the University of Florida and at Oberlin College and has had visiting appointments at Stanford, Harvard, the University of Washington, New York University, and Columbia University. From 1998 to 2006, Jay served as Chair of the Statistics Department at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, which has an international reputation for activities in statistics education. In addition to this book, Jay has written several widely used engineering statistics texts and a book in applied mathematical statistics. He is currently collaborating on a business statistics text, and also serves as an Associate Editor for Reviews for several statistics journals. He is the recipient of a distinguished teaching award from Cal Poly and is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, cooking and eating good food, tennis, and travel to faraway places. He is especially proud of his wife, Carol, a retired elementary school teacher, his daughter Allison, the executive director of a nonprofit organization in New York City, and his daughter Teresa, an ESL teacher in New York City.

Ken Berk has a BS in Physics from Carnegie Tech (now Carnegie Mellon) and a PhD in Mathematics from Minnesota. He is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Illinois State University and a Fellow of the American Statistical Association. He founded the Software Reviews section of The American Statistician and edited it for six years. He served as Secretary/Treasurer, Program Chair, and Chair of the Statistical Computing Section of the American Statistical Association, and he twice co-chaired the Interface Symposium, the main annual meeting in statistical computing. His published work includes papers on time series, statistical computing, regression analysis, and statistical graphics and the book Data Analysis with Microsoft Excel (with Patrick Carey).
