Probability is a way of expressing knowledge or belief that an event will occur or has occurred. The concept has an exact mathematical meaning in probability theory, which is used extensively in such areas of study as mathematics, statistics, finance, gambling, science, Artificial intelligence/Machine learning and philosophy to draw conclusions about the likelihood of potential events and the underlying mechanics of complex systems.

Description: it trains the intuition to acquire probabilistic feeling. This book explains every single concept it enunciates. This is its main strength, deep explanation, and not just examples that happen to explain Tsitsiklis and Bertsekas leave nothing to chance. The probability to misinterpret a concept or not understand it is just... zero. Numerous examples, figures, and end-of-chapter problems strengthen the understanding. Also of invaluable help is the book's web s...

Description: The present set of lecture notes is directed at students who have to do a certain amount of probability theory and statistics as part of their general mathematics education, and accordingly it is directed neither at students specializing in probability or statistics nor at students in need of statistics as an ancillary subject.
