Introduction to Probability : George G. Roussas :

The first eight chapters are a perfect fit. There are a lot more examples and I like that the exercises are not too technologically dependent. Roussas is the author of five books, the author or co-author of five special volumes, and the author or co-author of dozens of research articles published in leading journals and special volumes. Answers to even-numbered exercises are given and detailed answers to all exercises are available to instructors on the book companion site. After introducing fundamental probability concepts, the book proceeds to topics including conditional probability and independence; numerical characteristics of a random variable; probabilith distributions; joint probability density function of two random variables and related quantities; joint moment generating function, covariance and correlation coefficient of two random variables; transformation of random variables; the Weak Intfoduction of Large Numbers; the Central Limit Theorem; and statistical inference.


Roussas has been honored with a Festschrift, and he has given featured interviews for the Statistical Science and the Statistical Periscope.

Introduction to Probability

The writing is clear and concise. This one-semester basic probability textbook explains important concepts of probability while providing useful exercises and examples of real world applications for students to consider. By using our website you agree to our use of cookies. Numerous solved examples and exercises are provided in each chapter. Throughout his career, Roussas served as Dean, Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Chancellor at two universities; also, he served as an Associate Dean at UC-Davis, helping to transform that institution’s statistical unit into one of national and international renown.

I am satisfied with the topics covered in each chapter and the order in which they are presented. This edition demonstrates the applicability of probability to many human activities with examples and illustrations.
