This text is intended primarily for readers interested in mathematical probability as applied to mathematics, statistics, operations research, engineering, and computer science. It is also appropriate for mathematically oriented readers in the physical and social sciences. Prerequisite material consists of basic set theory and a firm foundation in elementary calculus, including infinite series, partial differentiation, and multiple integration. Some exposure to rudimentary linear algebra (e.g., matrices and determinants) is also desirable. This text includes pedagogical techniques not often found in books at this level, in order to make the learning process smooth, efficient, and enjoyable.
