# An Introduction to Probability and Statistics

**A well-balanced introduction to probability theory and mathematical statistics**

Featuring a comprehensive update,* An Introduction to Probability and Statistics, Third Edition* remains a solid overview to probability theory and mathematical statistics. Divided into three parts, the *Third Edition *begins by presenting the fundamentals and foundations of probability. The second part addresses statistical inference, and the remaining chapters focus on special topics.

Featuring a substantial revision to include recent developments, *An Introduction to Probability and Statistics, Third Edition* also includes:

- A new section on regression analysis to include multiple regression, logistic regression, and Poisson regression
- A reorganized chapter on large sample theory to emphasize the growing role of asymptotic statistics
- Additional topical coverage on bootstrapping, estimation procedures, and resampling
- Discussions on invariance, ancillary statistics, conjugate prior distributions, and invariant confidence intervals
- Over 550 problems and answers to most problems, as well as 350 worked-out examples and 200 remarks
- Numerous figures to further illustrate examples and proofs throughout

*An Introduction to Probability and Statistics, Third Edition*is an ideal reference and resource for scientists and engineers in the fields of statistics, mathematics, physics, industrial management, and engineering. The book is also an excellent text for upper-undergraduate and graduate- level students majoring in probability and statistics.
