Probability Distributions, Random Processes and Numerical Methods, for KTU 4th Semester


The book meets the requirement of B.Tech. (IV semester) students for the course MA 204, Probability Distributions, Random Processes and Numerical Methods of APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University Kerala. The sixth chapter is adapted from the tenth edition of the bestselling title, Advanced Engineering Mathematics by Erwin Kreyszig. The text presents an elementary treatment of the subject and addresses the changing needs of a new generation of students. The aim of the book is to present the fundamentals of the subjects in the clearest possible way and pedagogy being the main consideration.
