Book DescriptionIn designing/writing each of the chapters, the usage of the traditional definition-theorem-example exposition format, used in most university textbooks has been avoided. Instead, a problem-oriented approach was adopted. That is, a problem situation is posed that highlights the need fora theoretical framework that can provide a satisfactory answer to the proposed situation. Then, this theoretical framework is reconstructed using intuitive approaches, discussions and activities for the reader.
This book provides a comprehensive Introduction to the foundations of probability and statistics for which leading authors have been invited to write chapters. The authors not only have valuable teaching experience, but have their practical experience in probability and statistics. Each of the chapters is dedicated to a major topic and offers an intuitive view of the subject matter, methodologies, concepts, terms and related applications. The book is suitable for use for entry level courses in first year university studies in science and engineering, higher level courses, postgraduate university studies and for the research community.
