ISBN: 9788126509843

INR 389


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 (earlier Kerala 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.
