This market-leading text provides a comprehensive introduction to probability and statistics for engineering students in all specialties. This proven, accurate book and its excellent examples evidence Jay Devore's reputation as an outstanding author and leader in the academic community. Devore emphasizes concepts, models, methodology, and applications as opposed to rigorous mathematical development and derivations. Through the use of lively and realistic examples, students go beyond simply learning about statistics-they actually put the methods to use.

Populations, Samples, and Processes. Pictorial and Tabular Methods in Descriptive Statistics. Measures of Location. Measures of Variability.
2. PROBABILITY.
Sample Spaces and Events. Axioms, Interpretations, and Properties of Probability. Counting Techniques. Conditional Probability. Independence.
3. DISCRETE RANDOM VARIABLES AND PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS.
Random Variables. Probability Distributions for Discrete Random Variables. Expected Values of Discrete Random Variables. The Binomial Probability Distribution. Hypergeometric and Negative Binomial Distributions. The Poisson Probability Distribution.
4. CONTINUOUS RANDOM VARIABLES AND PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS.
Continuous Random Variables and Probability Density Functions. Cumulative Distribution Functions and Expected Values. The Normal Distribution. The Exponential and Gamma Distribution. Other Continuous Distributions. Probability Plots.
5. JOINT PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS AND RANDOM SAMPLES.
Jointly Distributed Random Variables. Expected Values, Covariance, and Correlation. Statistics and Their Distributions. The Distribution of the Sample Mean. The Distribution of a Linear Combination.
6. POINT ESTIMATION.
Some General Concepts of Point Estimation. Methods of Point Estimation.
7. STATISTICAL INTERVALS BASED ON A SINGLE SAMPLE.
Basic Properties of Confidence Intervals. Large-Sample Confidence Intervals for a Population Mean and Proportion. Intervals Based on a Normal Population Distribution. Confidence Intervals for the Variance and Standard Deviation of a Normal Population.
8. TESTS OF HYPOTHESES BASED ON A SINGLE SAMPLE.
Hypothesis and Test Procedures. Tests About a Population Mean. Tests Concerning a Population Proportion. P-Values. Some Comments on Selecting a Test.
9. INFERENCES BASED ON TWO SAMPLES.
z Tests and Confidence Intervals for a Difference Between Two Population Means. The Two-Sample t Test and Confidence Interval. Analysis of Paired Data. Inferences Concerning a Difference Between Population Proportions. Inferences Concerning Two Population Variances.
