This book is based on the premise that engineers use probability as a modeling tool, and that probability can be applied to the solution of engineering problems. Engineers and students studying probability and random processes also need to analyze data, and thus need some knowledge of statistics. This book is designed to provide students with a thorough grounding in probability and stochastic processes, demonstrate their applicability to real-world problems, and introduce the basics of statistics. The book's clear writing style and homework problems make it ideal for the classroom or for self-study.

Review quote

"The extensive use of illustrative examples throughout the text will enhance the learning experience of students", Robert Morelos, San Jose State University

"It is an excellent book for students, teachers and practitioners interested in the analytical and computational procedures related to random variables and stochastic processes." Rajarathnam Chandramouli, Stevens Institute of Technology

"This is a good, solid introduction to probability theory and stochastic processes. Some advanced topics are introduced a bit earlier in the development than in other books - a good point", Tom Robertazzi, Stony Brook University
