# Statistics and Probability with Applications for Engineers and Scientists

**Introducing the tools of statistics ****and probability from the ground up**

An understanding of statistical tools is essential for engineers and scientists who often need to deal with data analysis over the course of their work. *Statistics and Probability with Applications for Engineers and Scientists *walks readers through a wide range of popular statistical techniques, explaining step-by-step how to generate, analyze, and interpret data for diverse applications in engineering and the natural sciences.

Unique among books of this kind, *Statistics and Probability with Applications for Engineers and **Scientists *covers descriptive statistics first, then goes on to discuss the fundamentals of probability theory. Along with case studies, examples, and real-world data sets, the book incorporates clear instructions on how to use the statistical packages Minitab® and Microsoft® Office Excel® to analyze various data sets. The book also features:

**• **Detailed discussions on sampling distributions, statistical estimation of population parameters, hypothesis testing, reliability theory, statistical quality control including Phase I and Phase II control charts, and process capability indices

**• **A clear presentation of nonparametric methods and simple and multiple linear regression methods, as well as a brief discussion on logistic regression method

**• **Comprehensive guidance on the design of experiments, including randomized block designs, one- and two-way layout designs, Latin square designs, random effects and mixed effects models, factorial and fractional factorial designs, and response surface methodology

**• **A companion website containing data sets for Minitab and Microsoft Office Excel, as well as JMP ® routines and results

Assuming no background in probability and statistics, *Statistics and Probability with Applications for Engineers and Scientists *features a unique, yet tried-and-true, approach that is ideal for all undergraduate students as well as statistical practitioners who analyze and illustrate real-world data in engineering and the natural sciences.
