This market-leading book provides a comprehensive introduction to probability models and statistical methods in engineering and the physical and natural sciences. It is a proven accurate book with great examples from an outstanding author, Jay Devore. Through the use of lively and realistic examples, readers go beyond simply learning about statistics--they actually experience its potential. Probability and Statistics for Engineering and the Sciences, Fifth Edition emphasizes models, methodology, and applications rather than rigorous mathematical development and theory.
