# An Introduction to Probability and Statistics

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

Featuring updated material, *An Introduction to Probability and Statistics, Third Edition *remains a solid overview to probability theory and mathematical statistics. Divided intothree parts, the *Third Edition *begins by presenting the fundamentals and foundationsof probability. The second part addresses statistical inference, and the remainingchapters focus on special topics.

*An Introduction to Probability and Statistics, Third Edition *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.
