Examine Banking institution for Chance and Statistics for Computer Programmers, 3rd Version

Advantages of the Second Version:

“The writer has done his due diligence on the statistical tools necessary for the real challenges computer scientists encounter… [He] has taken great care to select examples that are intriguing and practical for computer scientists. … The content is illustrated with numerous figures, and concludes with appendices and an index. The information is erudite and … may serve well as a required text for an advanced undergraduate or graduate course.” —Computing Reviews

Chance and Statistics for Computer Programmers, Third Edition helps students grasp fundamental principles of Chance and Statistics, standard methods of stochastic modeling, simulation, queuing, and statistical data analysis; make optimal choices under uncertainty; model and evaluate computer systems; and prepare for advanced probability-based applications. Composed in a lively manner with simple language and now including R as well as MATLAB, this classroom-tested book can be used for one- or two-semester courses.



  • Axiomatic introduction of probability


  • Expanded coverage of statistical inference and data analysis, including estimation and testing, Bayesian approach, multivariate regression, chi-square tests for independence and goodness of fit, nonparametric statistics, and bootstrap


  • Numerous motivating examples and exercises including computer projects


  • Thoroughly annotated R codes in parallel to MATLAB


  • Applications in computer science, software engineering, telecommunications, and related areas

In-Depth yet Approachable Treatment of Computer Science-Connected Topics
Commencing with the basics of probability, the text guides students through topics heavily featured in modern computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, and associated fields, such as computer simulations, Monte Carlo methods, stochastic processes, Markov chains, queuing theory, statistical inference, and regression. It also meets the requirements of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
