ab: Publisher’s description: Featuring updated material, the book 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. The book includes: { indent=5mm \item{‒} a new section on
regression analysis to include multiple regression, logistic
regression, and Poisson regression, \item{‒} a reorganized chapter on
large sample theory to emphasize the growing role of asymptotic
statistics, \item{‒} additional topical coverage on bootstrapping,
estimation procedures, and resampling, \item{‒} discussions on
invariance, ancillary statistics, conjugate prior distributions, and
invariant confidence intervals, \item{‒} over 550 problems and
answers to most problems, as well as 350 worked out examples and 200
remarks, \item{‒} numerous figures to further illustrate examples and
proofs throughout. } The book 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. See the reviews of the
previous editions in [Zbl 0354.62001; Zbl 0969.62002].
