An introduction to probability at the undergraduate level

Chance and randomness are encountered on a daily basis. Authored by a highly qualified professor in the field, Probability: With Applications and R delves into the theories and applications essential to obtaining a thorough understanding of probability.

With real-life examples and thoughtful exercises from fields as diverse as biology, computer science, cryptology, ecology, public health, and sports, the book is accessible for a variety of readers. The book’s emphasis on simulation through the use of the popular R software language clarifies and illustrates key computational and theoretical results.

Probability: With Applications and R helps readers develop problem-solving skills and delivers an appropriate mix of theory and application. The book includes:

  • Chapters covering first principles, conditional probability, independent trials, random variables, discrete distributions, continuous probability, continuous distributions, conditional distribution, and limits
  • An early introduction to random variables and Monte Carlo simulation and an emphasis on conditional probability, conditioning, and developing probabilistic intuition
  • An R tutorial with example script files
  • Many classic and historical problems of probability as well as nontraditional material, such as Benford’s law, power-law distributions, and Bayesian statistics
  • A topics section with suitable material for projects and explorations, such as random walk on graphs, Markov chains, and Markov chain Monte Carlo
  • Chapter-by-chapter summaries and hundreds of practical exercises

Probability: With Applications and R is an ideal text for a beginning course in probability at the undergraduate level.

Welcome to the GMAT. Were we saying this to you in person, we might duck after speaking those words. For many people, there’s nothing remotely welcoming about the GMAT. To many business school applicants, the test appears to be the most painful hurdle they must clear in their admissions process, and the one for which their work experience has...

Selective Sweep (Molecular Biology Intelligence Unit)
Selective Sweep (Molecular Biology Intelligence Unit)
Positive selection is the driving force for the adaptation of organisms
to an ever-changing environment, and it leads to adaptive evolution and in
some cases to speciation. When selective pressure is applied to individuals
based on their phenotype, it ultimately leads to the changes in the underlying
genetic content of the

The world of medicine has become splintered into two factions, that of orthodoxy and its counterpart, alternative or complementary medicine. A problem with alternative medicine is, of course, that of anecdote and hearsay. The solution: the disclosure, in an unassailable fashion, of the underlying biochemical principles for alternative cancer...
