A firm understanding of the concepts of probability and statistics is essential for the quantitative analysis of risk, uncertainty and reliability in engineering problems. This introductory textbook, rich in solved problems, provides a comprehensive coverage of the topics of probability and statistics for an undergraduate course in science and engineering. The theoretical concepts are dealt with in a straight forward manner, with emphasis on their applications to real-world problems. Exercises of varied levels of difficulty have been included so as to give the student an exposure to a wide variety of practical situations where the applications of the concepts learnt play a role in decision making.
