Random walks and electric networks by
Peter G Doyle(
Book
)
25 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Probability theory, like much of mathematics, is indebted to physics as a source of problems and intuition for solving these problems. Unfortunately, the level of abstraction of current mathematics often makes it difficult for anyone but an expert to appreciate this fact. Random Walks and Electric Networks looks at the interplay of physics and mathematics in terms of an example  the relation between elementary electric network theory and random walks where the mathematics involved is at the college level

Probability tales by
Charles M Grinstead(
Book
)
11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book explores four realworld topics through the lens of probability theory. It can be used to supplement a standard text in probability or statistics. Most elementary textbooks present the basic theory and then illustrate the ideas with some neatly packaged examples. Here the authors assume that the reader has seen, or is learning, the basic theory from another book and concentrate in some depth on the following topics: streaks, the stock market, lotteries, and fingerprints. This extended format allows the authors to present multiple approaches to problems and to pursue promising side discussions in ways that would not be possible in a book constrained to cover a fixed set of topics."Page 4 of cover

Introduction to probability by
Charles M Grinstead(
Book
)
25 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This text is designed for an introductory probability course at the university level for sophomores, juniors, and seniors in mathematics, physical and social sciences, engineering, and computer science. It presents a thorough treatment of ideas and techniques necessary for a firm understanding of the subject. The text is also recommended for use in discrete probability courses. The material is organized so that the discrete and continuous probability discussions are presented in a separate, but parallel, manner. This organization does not emphasize an overly rigorous or formal view of probability and therefore offers some strong pedagogical value. Hence, the discrete discussions can sometimes serve to motivate the more abstract continuous probability discussions. It's features include: key ideas are developed in a somewhat leisurely style, provided a variety of interesting applications to probability and showing some nonintuitive ideas; over 600 exercises provide the opportunity for practicing skills and developing a sound understanding of ideas; and, numerous historical comments deal with the development of discrete probability. The text includes many computer programs that illustrate the algorithms or the methods of computation for important problems

Denumerable Markov chains by
John George Kemeny(
Book
)
26 editions published between 1966 and 1976 in 3 languages and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the first edition out of print, we decided to arrange for republiƯ cation of Denumerrible Markov Ohains with additional bibliographic material. The new edition contains a section Additional Notes that indicates some of the developments in Markov chain theory over the last ten years. As in the first edition and for the same reasons, we have resisted the temptation to follow the theory in directions that deal with uncountable state spaces or continuous time. A section entitled Additional References complements the Additional Notes. J.W. Pitman pointed out an error in Theorem 953 of the first edition, which we have corrected. More detail about the correction appears in the Additional Notes. Aside from this change, we have left intact the text of the first eleven chapters. The second edition contains a twelfth chapter, written by David Griffeath, on Markov random fields. We are grateful to Ted Cox for his help in preparing this material. Notes for the chapter appear in the section Additional Notes. J.G.K., J.L.S., A.W.K
