This updated text provides a superior introduction to applied probability and statistics for engineering or science majors. Ross emphasizes the manner in which probability yields insight into statistical problems; ultimately resulting in an intuitive understanding of the statistical procedures most often used by practicing engineers and scientists. Real data sets are incorporated in a wide variety of exercises and examples throughout the book, and this emphasis on data motivates the probability coverage. As with the previous editions, Ross' text has remendously clear exposition, plus real-data examples and exercises throughout the text. Numerous exercises, examples, and applications apply probability theory to everyday statistical problems and situations. New to the 4th Edition: - New Chapter on Simulation, Bootstrap Statistical Methods, and Permutation Tests - 20% New Updated problem sets and applications, that demonstrate updated applications to engineering as well as biological, physical and computer science - New Real data examples that use significant real data from actual studies across life science, engineering, computing and business - New End of Chapter review material that emphasizes key ideas as well as the risks associated with practical application of the material

PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS FOR ENGINEERS AND SCIENTISTS, Fourth Edition, continues the student-oriented approach that has made previous editions successful. As a teacher and researcher at a premier engineering school, author Tony Hayter is in touch with engineers daily--and understands their vocabulary. The result of this familiarity with the professional community is a clear and readable writing style that students understand and appreciate, as well as high-interest, relevant examples and data sets that keep students' attention. A flexible approach to the use of computer tools, including tips for using various software packages, allows instructors to choose the program that best suits their needs. At the same time, substantial computer output (using MINITAB and other programs) gives students the necessary practice in interpreting output. Extensive use of examples and data sets illustrates the importance of statistical data collection and analysis for students in the fields of aerospace, biochemical, civil, electrical, environmental, industrial, mechanical, and textile engineering, as well as for students in physics, chemistry, computing, biology, management, and mathematics.

Real World Data Sets with new problems along with ARIS, McGraw-Hill's Homework Management System, define what this second edition has to offer. Within ARIS, Navidi offers 300 algorithmic practice problems along with Java applets that allow students to interactively explore ideas in the text. Customizable PowerPoint lecture notes for each chapter are available as well, along with suggested syllabi, and other features. More information can be found at aris.mhhe.com. This new edition includes more than 200 new exercises, a new section on point estimation on histograms, and provides discussion of Chebyshev's inequality.

This market-leading text provides a comprehensive introduction to probability and statistics for engineering students in all specialties. Proven, accurate, and lauded for its excellent examples, PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS FOR ENGINEERING AND THE SCIENCES evidences Jay Devore’s reputation as an outstanding author and leader in the academic community. Devore emphasizes concepts, models, methodology, and applications as opposed to rigorous mathematical development and derivations. Aided by his lively and realistic examples, students go beyond simply learning about statistics--they also learn how to put statistical methods to use.
