Applied Statistics and Probabilty for Engineers – Douglas C. Montgomery – 5th Edition


The text provides a practical oriented to engineering as well as and sciences. learn how the material will be relevant in their careers through the integration throughout of unique problem sets that reflect realistic applications and situations. , 5e is suitable for either a one- or two-term course in probability and .

  1. Because computer-intensive are so important in the modern use of statistics, material on the bootstrap and its use in constructing confidence intervals has been added
  2. Increased emphasis on the use of P-value in hypothesis testing, throughout the text
  3. Explanations throughout the have been refined to clarify the concepts, making them easier for students to understand.
  4. The introductory chapter on hypothesis testing now includes coverage of equivalence testing, a technique widely used in the biopharmaceutical industry, but which also has widespread applications in other areas.
  5. Combining P-values when performing multiple tests is included.
  6. Many new examples and almost entirely revised homework exercises sections.
