Probability: Random Variables and Random Signal – Peyton Peebles – 4th Edition


The fourth edition of “, Random Variables and Principles” continues the success of previous editions with its concise introduction to probability theory for the junior-senior level course in electrical engineering. The book offers a careful, logical organization which stresses fundamentals and includes almost 900 exercises and abundant practical applications for to understand probability concepts.

The most important new material in this edition relates to discrete-time random processes and sequences, and other topics in the general area of digital , such as the DT linear system.
