Summary: A well-balanced introduction to probability theory and mathematical statistics Featuring a comprehensive update, An Introduction to Probability and Statistics, Third Edition remains a solid overview to probability theory and mathematical statistics. Divided into three parts, the Third Edition begins by presenting the fundamentals and foundations of probability. The second part addresses statistical inference, and the remaining chapters focus on special topics. Featuring a substantial revision to include recent developments, An Introduction to Probability and Statistics, Third Edition also.
