About this item

Some graduate biostatistics and statistics programs still require a full year of probability, while some have acceded to student impatience and eliminated it entirely. Proschan and Shaw offer a textbook for a compromise between these extremes. They present the essential probability results that are used repeatedly in statistical applications, and selected proofs that make repeated use of mathematical techniques that professional statisticians continue to use when rigor is needed. Among their topics are size matters, random variables and vectors, modes of convergence, laws of large numbers, and conditional probability and expectation.
