Introduction to probability and statistics for engineers and scientists by
Sheldon M Ross(
)
98 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 2,494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For junior/senior undergraduates taking probability and statistics as it applies to engineering, science, or computer science, this classic text provides a rigorous introduction to basic probability theory and statistical inference that is motivated by engaging, relevant applications. It assumes knowledge of elementary calculus." "Adopters of earlier editions continue to praise the extraordinarily clear exposition and writing style. Ross emphasizes the manner in which probability yields insight into statistical problems ensuring this edition will appeal to a new generation of engineers and scientists. The enclosed CDROM contains easytouse software that automates many of the computations required for the exercises and aids students in applying probability theory to everyday statistical problems and situations."Jacket

18 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introduction to Stochastic Dynamic Programming presents the basic theory and examines the scope of applications of stochastic dynamic programming. The book begins with a chapter on various finitestage models, illustrating the wide range of applications of stochastic dynamic programming. Subsequent chapters study infinitestage models: discounting future returns, minimizing nonnegative costs, maximizing nonnegative returns, and maximizing the longrun average return. Each of these chapters first considers whether an optimal policy need existproviding counterexamples where appropriateand the

Introductory statistics by
Sheldon M Ross(

)
56 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this revised text, master expositor Sheldon Ross has produced a unique work in introductory statistics. The text's main merits are the clarity of presentation, contemporary examples and applications from diverse areas. Ross provides a clear explanation of intuition and the ideas behind the statistical methods. To quote from the preface, "It is only when a student develops a feel or intuition for statistics that she or he is really on the path toward making sense of data." Ross achieves this goal through a coherent mix of mathematical analysis, intuitive discussions and examples."Publisher's website

An introduction to mathematical finance : options and other topics by
Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
14 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This elementary introduction to the theory of options pricing presents the BlackScholes theory of options as well as such general topics in finance as the time value of money, rate of return of an investment cashflow sequence, utility functions and expected utility maximization, mean variance analysis, optimal portfolio selection, and the capital assets pricing model." "The author assumes no prior knowledge of probability and presents all the necessary preliminary material simply and clearly in chapters on probability, normal random variables, and the geometric Brownian motion model that underlies the BlackScholes theory. This book will appeal to professional traders as well as undergraduates studying the basics of finance."Jacket

Probability models for computer science by
Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The role of probability in computer science has been growing for years and, in lieu of a tailored textbook, many courses have employed a variety of similar, but not entirely applicable, alternatives. To meet the needs of the computer science graduate student (and the advanced undergraduate), bestselling author Sheldon Ross has developed the premier probability text for aspiring computer scientists involved in computer simulation and modeling. The math is precise and easily understood. As with his other texts, Sheldon Ross presents very

A second course in probability by
Sheldon M Ross(
Book
)
6 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Second Course in Probability is for undergraduate and graduate students in statistics, mathematics, engineering, finance, and actuarial science, and is a guided tour designed to give familiarity with advanced topics in probability without having to wade through the exhaustive coverage of the classic advanced probability theory books. Topics covered here include measure theory, limit theorems, bounding probabilities and expectations, coupling and Stein's method, martingales, Markov chains, renewal theory, and Brownian motion. No other text covers all these advanced topics rigorously but at such an accessible level; all you need to get started here is calculus and material from a first undergraduate course in probability. Any other concepts required, such as the definition of convergence, the Lebesgue integral, and of countable and uncountable sets, are introduced as needed. Publisher description
