A First Course in Probability by Sheldon Ross is good. improve this answer. answered Apr 9 '11 at I second this, and would like to mention "Probability Theory: A Concise Course" by Y.A. Rozanov – grayQuant May 4 '15 at If anybody asks for a recommendation for an introductory probability book, then my suggestion would be the book.   Many quantities can be described with probability density functions. For example, the length of time a person waits in line at a checkout counter or the life span of a light bulb. None of these quantities are fixed values and will depend on a variety of factors. In this section we will look at probability density functions and computing the mean (think average wait in line or .   Check out "Probability Theory" by Edwin T. Jaynes. It was published maybe 35 years ago (?) by the Oxford University Press, and their stuff is generally pretty good. Jaynes was a lecturer at Stanford University in about and gave magnificent le. e-books in Probability & Statistics category Probability and Statistics: A Course for Physicists and Engineers by Arak M. Mathai, Hans J. Haubold - De Gruyter Open, This is an introduction to concepts of probability theory, probability distributions relevant in the applied sciences, as well as basics of sampling distributions, estimation and hypothesis testing.

Published in by Wellesley-Cambridge Press, the book is a useful resource for educators and self-learners alike. It is well organized, covers single variable and multivariable calculus in depth, and is rich with applications. There is also an online Instructor's Manual and a student Study Guide. The complete textbook is also available as a. One should also note that Earman's own treatment of Hume is relatively brief (86 out of pages) and some readers may find tedious the extensive use of symbolic logic and mathematical equations in the discussion of the probability er, while the publisher touts Earman's book as "a vital, new interpretation" of Hume, most of the author's criticisms are . first course in calculus, in case students could use arefresher, as well asbrief introduc- tions to partial derivatives, double integrals, etc. Chapter 1 introduces the probability model and provides motivation for the study. Notes on Probability Theory and Statistics. This note explains the following topics: Probability Theory, Random Variables, Distribution Functions, And Densities, Expectations And Moments Of Random Variables, Parametric Univariate Distributions, Sampling Theory, Point And Interval Estimation, Hypothesis Testing, Statistical Inference, Asymptotic Theory, Likelihood Function, .

  Here is a set of practice problems to accompany the Probability section of the Applications of Integrals chapter of the notes for Paul Dawkins Calculus II course at Lamar . The Calculus of Probability Let A and B be events in a sample space S. Partition rule: P (A) = P (A∩B)+P (A∩B{) Example: Roll a pair of fair dice P (Total of 10) = P (Total of 10 and double)+P (Total of 10 and no double) = 1 36 + 2 36 = 3 36 = 1 12 Complementation rule: P (A{) = 1−P (A) Example: Often useful for events of the type “at. Probability theory is the branch of mathematics concerned with gh there are several different probability interpretations, probability theory treats the concept in a rigorous mathematical manner by expressing it through a set of lly these axioms formalise probability in terms of a probability space, which assigns a measure taking values between 0 . Calculus Based Probability. To learn this section you need to know about Integral calculus (and Differential calculus of course) and/or finding the area under a curve and some integration techniques. like U-substitution, Integration by parts. You can learn these things from the relevant pages of this book.
