Probability has applications in many areas of modern science, not to mention in our daily life. Its importance as a mathematical discipline cannot be overrated, and it is a fascinating and surprising topic in its own right. This engaging textbook with its easy-to-follow writing style provides a comprehensive, yet concise introduction to the subject. It covers all of the standard material for undergraduate and first-year-graduate-level courses as well as many topics that are usually not found in standard text - such as Bayesian inference, Markov chain Monte Carlo simulation, and Chernoff bounds.

• ●Stresses why probability is so relevant and how to apply it - students won't simply learn probability, they will understand it
• Perfectly balances theory and applications - the fundamental concepts are explained with engaging real-world examples and many problem-solving tips are provided
• Includes more than 750 problems with detailed solutions of the odd-numbered problems - students will build up confidence in their own problem-solving skills
