Many students in disciplines outside mathematics, including the humanities and science, must take courses in statistics, of which probability forms an integral part, demanding that the information be simplified and updated. This book will give students, particularly in applied statistics courses, an easy-to-understand methodology for manipulating and solving simple and complex problems involving probability. Since the book does not employ calculus, it assumes familiarity only with arithmetic and algebra, making it ideal for the liberal arts student. However, even in beginning statistics courses for mathematics students, 90% of the problems are non-calculus-related, making the Outline suitable as well for understanding the probability elements of those courses.

Seymour Lipschutz, Ph.D. (Philadelphia, PA), is presently on the Mathematics faculty at Temple University. He has written more than 15 Schaum's Outlines.

Set Theory.

Techniques of Counting.

Introduction to Probability.

Conditional Probability and Independence.

Random Variables.

Binomial, Normal and Poisson Distributions.

Markov Chains.

Appendices: Descriptive Statistics.

Chi-Square Distribution.
