Overview

Applications of probability theory appear throughout modern society, such as state lotteries, weather forecasts, insurance prices. Professionals use probability theory as an astute tool for decision making. Electrical and computer engineers use probability to design computer networks, test integrated circuits, and evaluate communications systems. This book is written to help engineers clearly grasp the concepts of probability and stochastic processes. It presents the theory of probability and stochastic process as a sequence of building blocks that are clearly identified. Each block is either an axiom, a definition, or a theorem. Intuitive explanations of new concepts are interspersed with mathematical statements.
