Probability, Statistics, and Random Processes for Engineers - 03 edition

Probability, Statistics, and Random Processes for Engineers (ISBN10: 0534368883; ISBN13: 9780534368883)
ISBN13: 978-0534368883

Summary: This book focuses on teaching probabilistic and statistical methods to upper-division electrical and computer engineering (EECE) students. It is the result of over 20 years of teaching this course in the rapidly changing environment of EECE education. In addition to being a readable and focused book for EECE students, the book is a teachable book for EECE instructors with a variety of technical backgrounds. The first part of the book, Chapters 1-3, contains fundament moreal probability material. The second part, Chapters 4-7, presents applications and extensions based upon the first three chapters. The four application chapters may be studied in any order, as they do not depend on each other in any essential way.


  • Includes a wealth of applications for electrical and computer engineering (EECE) students.
  • Introduces functions with random features, such as noise or sinusoids with random phase, in Chapter 4. The coverage is restricted to "wide-sense stationary" random processes, a class of functions which are very useful in modern practice and also supply a starting point for more complicated applications.
  • Illustrates the application of probability to the reliability of devices and software in Chapter 7. The chapter focuses on failure rates (hazard functions), a description that engineers look to for guidance in a variety of cases involving system reliability.
  • Contains computer simulations written in pseudocode as well as applications in MATLAB®. Computer exercises appear at the end of each chapter.
  • Features helpful appendices such as Appendix A, a summary of probability models discussed throughout the book. Readers may refer to Appendix A rather than leaf through the various parts of the book searching for features of a probability model. less
