Probability and Statistics for Engineers is written for undergraduate students of engineering and physical sciences. Besides the students of B.E. and B.Tech., those pursuing MCA and MCS can also find the book useful. The book would be equally helpful for six sigma practitioners in industries. Comprehensive yet concise, the text is well-organized in 15 chapters that can be covered in a one-semester course in probability and statistics. Designed to meet the requirements of engineering students, the text covers all important topics, emphasizing basic engineering and science applications.
