Overview

"Maintaining their user-friendly approach, Roy Yates and David Goodman demystify probability. The authors help you develop an intuitive grasp of the principles of probability and stochastic processes, allowing you to successfully solve basic engineering problems using these principles...with a smile." "The authors present the principles of probability and stochastic processes as a logical sequence of building blocks that are clearly identified as an axiom, definition, or theorem. For each new principle, examples illustrate the application of the mathematics to engineering problems. You'll also have many opportunities for practice." Now revised, this Second Edition features a new chapter on random vectors, expanded coverage of the applications of probability, a streamlined presentation of Markov chains and elementary queuing theory, and a tutorial in each chapter on using MATLAB.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text on concepts of probability and stochastic processes, presented as a series of building blocks clearly identified as either an axiom, definition, or theorem. Treatment follows a consistent model that begins with an experiment consisting of a procedure and observations, with separate chapters on discrete and continuous random variables. Includes worked examples, exercises, quizes, and solutions. Problems are graded. For use in a one-semester undergraduate course. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    Awful explanations, poor examples too

    This is probably the worst textbook I've had, for any class. Ever. The explanations in the text are completely worthless, and the examples are equally disappointing. The text does explain even the most basic procedures. Beyond the content, the presentation is poor as well. The book is poorly organized and laid out, and difficult to read. Avoid this book if possible.

    Incredible book!

    Wow, this book is amazing. Probably the best book I've ever read. I'd suggest you buy not just one, but several copies of it.
