Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

An introduction to the mathematics of probability and statistics, this text contains numerous applications to aid understanding. It covers probability, discrete and continuous distributions, and Sampling Distribution Theory. It also covers estimation, tests of statistical hypotheses, linear models and quality improvements through statistical methods.
