This concise introduction to probability theory carries on the success of previous editions, offering readers a logical, well-organized look at the fundamental of the subject—includes applications that strengthen engineers' grasp of probability concepts. New! Coverage of discrete-time random processes and sequences, and other general topics related to digital signal processing.

In this upper division text designed specially for the electrical engineering curriculum, Peebles (electrical and computer engineering, U. of Florida, Gainesville) covers the basics of probability, random variables, and random processes, incorporating 134 examples (many of which are compatible with MATLAB) focusing especially on the problem of noise. Other topics include permutation, combinations, laws of large numbers, and estimation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
