Description:

This textbook is an introduction to probability and statistical inference for students. It contains a large amount of figures, with simulations and graphs, produced by the statistical package S-Plus(r), included throughout. It discusses methods for the computer simulation of observations from specified distributions and provides flexibility for instructors. Each section is followed by a range of problems, from simple to more complex with selected answers.
