Introduction to Randomness and Statistics
by Alexander K. Hartmann
Publisher: arXiv 2009
Number of pages: 95
This text provides a practical introduction to randomness and data analysis, in particular in the context of computer simulations. At the beginning, the most basics concepts of probability are given, in particular discrete and continuous random variables. The text is basically self-contained, comes with several example C programs and contains eight practical exercises.

This is a short book about the principles of data analysis. The emphasis is on why things are done rather than on exactly how to do them. If you already know something about the subject, then working through this book will deepen your understanding.
