Introduction to Probability with Mathematica

Kevin Hastings, 2001, Chapman & Hall, 380 pp., hardbound.




Introduction to Probability with Mathematica is designed as an introductory text for probability theory. By using Mathematica as the supporting technology rather than as a statistics package, the author focuses on probability concepts and simulation, rather than on statistical analysis. Each section of the book exists as a Mathematica notebook on the CRC web site. Emphasis is placed on sampling distribution and statistical inference, allowing readers to see probability as integral to data analysis. 

Chapters include: Discrete Probability; Discrete Distributions; Continuous Probability; Continuous Distributions; Asymptotic Theory; Applications of Probability; appendix.

This book is available from The Mathematica Bookstore.
