Introduction to probability and statistics for engineers and scientists by Sheldon M Ross( Book )

87 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,228 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 CD-ROM contains easy-to-use 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

An introduction to mathematical finance : options and other topics by Sheldon M Ross( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This elementary introduction to the theory of options pricing presents the Black-Scholes theory of options as well as such general topics in finance as the time value of money, rate of return of an investment cash-flow 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 Black-Scholes theory. This book will appeal to professional traders as well as undergraduates studying the basics of finance."--Jacket
Introductory statistics by Sheldon M Ross( Book )

52 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 445 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
