Probability and Statistics

Athanasios Papoulis

In his latest book Probability and Statistics, author A. Papoulis introduces a new approach to the teaching of probability and statistics, shifting the emphasis from loosely related applications to conceptual unity and clarity. To overcome the skepticism associated with this important subject, he presents the theory as a deductive discipline and gives the empirical interpretation of all theoretical results, stressing the need for a sharp distinction between concepts and reality. 

Although written mainly for students of science and engineering, the book will also appeal to practicing scientists interested in a comprehensive development of the subject. 

Original features include: 

  • Theoretical and empirical interpretation of probability and statistics 
  • Random numbers and computer simulation
  • Subjective and objective Bayesian statistics
  • Deterministic and statistical presentation of regression and least squares
  • Entropy as a statistical concept
