"The 4th edition of Ghahramani's book is replete with intriguing historical notes, insightful comments, and well-selected examples/exercises that, together, capture much of the essence of probability. Along with its Companion Website, the book is suitable as a primary resource for a first course in probability. Moreover, it...

Fun guide to learning Bayesian statistics and probability through unusual and illustrative examples.

Probability and statistics are increasingly important in a huge range of professions. But many people use data in ways they don't even understand, meaning they aren't getting the most from it. Bayesian...

Since the advent of optical communications, a great technological effort has been devoted to the exploitation of the huge bandwidth of optical fibers. Starting from a few Mb/s single channel systems, a fast and constant technological development has led to the actual 10 Gb/s per channel dense wavelength division multiplexing...

This textbook presents in a concise and self-contained way the advanced fundamental mathematical structures in quantum theory. It is based on lectures prepared for a 6 months course for MSc students. The reader is introduced to the beautiful interconnection between logic, lattice theory, general probability theory, and general...

This volume contains the proceedings of the AMS Special Sessions on Algorithmic Probability and Combinatories held at DePaul University on October 5-6, 2007 and at the University of British Columbia on October 4-5, 2008.

This volume collects cutting-edge research and expository on algorithmic probability and combinatories. It...

Many colleges and universities offer a course in discrete mathematics. Students
taking these courses are from many disciplines, one of the largest
being computer science. As a part of the Mathematics Across the Curriculum
project at Dartmouth, supported by the National Science Foundation,1
we proposed to create a discrete mathematics...

There are many algorithm texts that provide lots of well-polished code and proofs of correctness. This book is not one of them. Instead, this book presents insights, notations, and analogies to help the novice describe and think about algorithms like an expert. By looking at both the big picture and easy step-by-step methods for developing...

Wallis's book on discrete mathematics is a resource for an introductory course in a subject fundamental to both mathematics and computer science, a course that is expected not only to cover certain specific topics but also to introduce students to important modes of thought specific to each discipline . . . Lower-division undergraduates...

Performance analysis belongs to the domain of applied mathematics. The major domain of application in this book concerns telecommunications systems and networks. We will mainly use stochastic analysis and probability theory to address problems in the performance evaluation of telecommunications systems and networks. The first...

' ... being relatively short and a paperback must make it appealing to students and those who need a quick introduction to the material. ... nicely produced and elegantly laid out. I would consider adopting it as a text for a course in this topic. Publication of the International Statistical Institute 'This is a well written textbook which should...

Master the fundamentals of discrete mathematics and proof-writing with MATHEMATICS: A DISCRETE INTRODUCTION! With a clear presentation, the mathematics text teaches you not only how to write proofs, but how to think clearly and present cases logically beyond this course. Though it is presented from a mathematician's perspective, you will...

In today’s world, analytical thinking is a critical part of any solid education. An important segment of this kind of reasoning—one that cuts across many disciplines—is discrete mathematics. Discrete math concerns counting, probability, (sophisticated forms of) addition, and limit processes over discrete sets. Combinatorics, graph...
