Description

Designed as an introductory text for probability theory. By using Mathematica as the supporting technology rather than 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.
