Introduction to Probability and Statistics Using R
by G. Jay Kerns , 2010
A textbook for an undergraduate course in probability and statistics. The prerequisites are two or three semesters of calculus and some linear algebra. Students attending the class include mathematics, engineering, and computer science majors.
Probability and Statistics Cookbook
by Matthias Vallentin - vallentin.net , 2012
The cookbook contains a succinct representation of various topics in probability theory and statistics. It provides a comprehensive reference reduced to the mathematical essence, rather than aiming for elaborate explanations.
Basic Data Analysis and More: A Guided Tour Using Python

Contents: Probability (Probability Calculus, Random Variables, Discrete and Continuous Distributions); Statistics (Handling of Data, Sampling, Estimation, Hypothesis Testing); Stochastic Processes (Markov Processes, Continuous-Time Processes).
CK-12 Basic Probability and Statistics: A Short Course
by Brenda Meery - CK-12.org , 2010
CK-12 Foundation's Basic Probability and Statistics– A Short Course is an introduction to theoretical probability and data organization. Students learn about events, conditions, random variables, and graphs and tables that allow them to manage data.
Introduction to Probability Theory and Statistics for Linguistics

Contents: Basic Probability Theory (Conditional Probability, Random Variables, Limit Theorems); Elements of Statistics (Estimators, Tests, Distributions, Correlation and Covariance, Linear Regression, Markov Chains); Probabilistic Linguistics.
Lectures on Noise Sensitivity and Percolation
by Christophe Garban, Jeffrey E. Steif - arXiv , 2011
The goal of this set of lectures is to combine two seemingly unrelated topics: (1) The study of Boolean functions, a field particularly active in computer science; (2) Some models in statistical physics, mostly percolation.
Topics in Random Matrix Theory
by Terence Tao , 2011
This is a textbook for a graduate course on random matrix theory, inspired by recent developments in the subject. This text focuses on foundational topics in random matrix theory upon which the most recent work has been based.
Think Stats: Probability and Statistics for Programmers
by Allen B. Downey - Green Tea Press , 2011
Think Stats is an introduction to Probability and Statistics for Python programmers. This new book emphasizes simple techniques you can use to explore real data sets and answer interesting statistical questions. Basic skills in Python are assumed.
Statistics, Probability, and Game Theory: papers in honor of David Blackwell
by David Blackwell, at al. - IMS , 1996
The bulk of the articles in this volume are research articles in probability, statistics, gambling, game theory, Markov decision processes, set theory and logic, comparison of experiments, games of timing, merging of opinions, etc.
Lectures on Probability, Statistics and Econometrics
by Marco Taboga - statlect.com , 2010
This e-book is organized as a website that provides access to a series of lectures on fundamentals of probability, statistics and econometrics, as well as to a number of exercises on the same topics. The level is intermediate.
A defense of Columbo: A multilevel introduction to probabilistic reasoning
by G. D'Agostini - arXiv , 2010
Triggered by a recent interesting article on the too frequent incorrect use of probabilistic evidence in courts, the author introduces the basic concepts of probabilistic inference with a toy model, and discusses several important issues.
Principles of Data Analysis
by Cappella Archive - Prasenjit Saha , 2003
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.
Introduction to Randomness and Statistics
by Alexander K. Hartmann - arXiv , 2009
This is 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.
An Introduction to Stochastic PDEs
by Martin Hairer - arXiv , 2009
This text is an attempt to give a reasonably self-contained presentation of the basic theory of stochastic partial differential equations, taking for granted basic measure theory, functional analysis and probability theory, but nothing else.
Reversible Markov Chains and Random Walks on Graphs
by Aldous, Fill - University of California, Berkeley , 2002
From the table of contents: General Markov Chains; Reversible Markov Chains; Hitting and Convergence Time, and Flow Rate, Parameters for Reversible Markov Chains; Special Graphs and Trees; Cover Times; Symmetric Graphs and Chains; etc.
Markov Chains and Mixing Times
by D. A. Levin, Y. Peres, E. L. Wilmer - American Mathematical Society , 2008
An introduction to the modern approach to the theory of Markov chains. The main goal of this approach is to determine the rate of convergence of a Markov chain to the stationary distribution as a function of the size and geometry of the state space.
Random Matrix Models and Their Applications
