Although the R programs are small in length, they are just as sophisticated Based on a popular course taught by the late Gian-Carlo Rota of MIT, with many new topics covered as well, Introduction to Probability with R presents R programs and animations to provide an intuitive yet rigorous understanding of how to model natural phenomena from a probabilistic point of view. Although the R programs are small in length, they are just as sophisticated and powerful as longer programs in other languages. This brevity makes it easy for students to become proficient in R. This calculus-based introduction organizes the material around key themes. One of the most important themes centers on viewing probability as a way to look at the world, helping students think and reason probabilistically. The text also shows how to combine and link stochastic processes to form more complex processes that are better models of natural phenomena.

A more advanced student could use the book as an extra source of intriguing mathematical examples, as could an instructor searching for interesting items to throw into a more conventional course.

It gives a sold introduction to probability with many interesting applications. One of its strengths is its material on stochastic processes. The book is clearly written and very well-organized and it stems in part from a popular course at MIT taught by the late Gian-Carlo Rota, which was originally designed in conjunction with the author of this book. The book goes well beyond the MIT course in making extensive use of computation and R. It would serve as an exemplary test for the first semester of a two-semester course on probability and statistics.

Introduction to Probability with R is a well-organized course in probability theory. The programming language R is an open-source, freely downloadable software package that is used in the book to illustrate various examples.

However, the book is well usable even if you do not have the time to include too much programming in your class. They often have some historical background, they tell a story, and they are never routine. Every chapter also starts with historical background, helping the student realize that this subject was developed by actual people. All classic topics that you would want to cover in an introductory probability class are covered.

Another aspect in which the book stands out among the competition is that discrete probability gets its due treatment. The author has covered each topic with an ample depth and with an appreciation of the problems faced by the modern world. The book contains a rich collection of exercises and problems This book showcases interesting, classic puzzles throughout the text, and readers can also get a glimpse of the lives and achievements of important pioneers in mathematics.
