Author: Gunnar Blom; Lars Holst; Dennis Sandell
Publisher: New York : Springr-Verlag, ©1994.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book comprises a collection of 125 problems and snapshots from discrete probability. The problems are selected on the basis of their elegance and utility whereas the snapshots are intended to provide a quick overview of topics in probability. These include combinatorics, Poisson approximation, patterns in random sequences, Markov chains, random walks, cover times, and embedding procedures.

Abstract:

We, the authors of this book, are three ardent devotees of chance, or some- what more precisely, of discrete probability. The book contains 125 problems and snapshots from the world of prob- ability.  Read more...

    schema:description "A wide range of readers will enjoy this diverse selection of topics. Students will find this a helpful and stimulating companion to their probability courses. The snapshots will leave the students with an expanded knowledge about topics not generally covered by textbooks. Other than a basic exposure to probabilistic ideas, such as might be gained from a first course in probability, it is self-contained."@en ;
    schema:description "Consequently, almost all of the problems can be tackled by undergraduate students as well as appeal to those who enjoy the challenge of constructing and solving problems."@en ;
