A comprehensive introductory text providing a clear treatment of the fundamental concepts and applications of probability and statistics. After a general overview of the subject, it considers special types of random variables using several examples which illustrate their wide variety of applications. The book also examines their calculation and presents computer programs that calculate the probability distribution and their inverse of binomial, poisson, normal, t, F and Chi-square distributions. Its coverage on sampling thoroughly reviews such topics as the sample mean, sample variance, sample median, as well as histograms, empirical distribution functions and stem- and-leaf plots; a program for computing sample mean and sample variance for a given data set is included. Among the other topics discussed in this work are hypothesis testing; regression, both simple and linear; and problems related to life testing. Also included is a diskette of 35 programs for the IBM PC, giving exact answers or approximations where appropriate.
