About the Authors
  • Because probability and statistics are as much about intuition and problem solving, as they are about theorem proving, students can find it very difficult to make a successful transition from lectures to examinations and practice. Since the subject is critical in many modern applications, Yuri Suhov and Michael Kelbert have rectified deficiencies in traditional lecture-based methods, by combining a wealth of exercises for which they have supplied complete solutions. These solutions are adapted to needs and skills of students and include basic mathematical facts as needed.

    • Enables readers to develop effective techniques for learning about and developing a deeper understanding of probability and statistics
    • Contains a substantial number of Cambridge exam questions, and solutions to help students prepare for examinations
    • Will also aid students in other disciplines including Analysis, Hilbert Spaces, Representation Theory and Statistical Physics

    Reviews & endorsements

    "All the ingredients that contribute to making a good lecture are in the book: well-explained theory, interesting examples, and funny jokes and amusing stories about famous probabilists and statisticians. The authors also give rhythm to the flow of the subjects, making the volume a very pleasant book to read."
    Mathematical Reviews

    "…authors claim that this book simplifies life for test-taking students by offering them a wealth of exercises along with complete solutions. Highly recommended."

    "Well put together, well written and containing a regular joke to relax the mind, this book is an excellent text for courses in probability and statistics designed for the reasonably mathematically sophisticated."
    Charles Ashbacher
