Probability and Statistics for Engineers and Scientists – Anthony Haytr – 3rd Edition


The new edition of Anthony Hayter’s continues in the same student-oriented vein that has made previous editions successful. Because Tony Hayter teaches and conducts research at a premier school, he is in touch with engineers daily and understands their vocabulary.

This leads to a clear and more readable writing style that understand and appreciate. Additionally, because of his intimacy with the professional community, Hayter includes many high-interest examples and datasets that keep ’ attention throughout the term. PROBABILITY AND FOR ENGINEERS AND employs a flexible with regard to the use of computer tools. Because the book is not tied to a particular software package, instructors may choose the program that best suits their needs.

Through the use of extensive examples and datasets, the book illustrates the importance of statistical data collection and for students in the fields of aerospace, biochemical, civil, electrical, environmental, industrial, mechanical, and textile engineering, as well as for students in physics, , computing, biology, management, and mathematics.
