Understanding probability : chance rules in everyday life by
H. C Tijms(
)
39 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 1,816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Here, the reader can learn about the world of probability in an informal way. Lotteries and casino games provide a natural source of motivation, and these are carefully discussed with many worked examples to illustrate the key concepts and ideas from probability theory. The emphasis is on why probability works and how it can be applied." "The author introduces the reader to the law of large numbers, betting systems, random walks, the bootstrap, rare events, the central limit theorem, the multivariate normal distribution, the Bayesian approach, generating functions, and more."Jacket

Understanding probability by
H. C Tijms(
)
23 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 1,588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Understanding Probability is a unique and stimulating approach to a first course in probability. The first part of the book demystifies probability and uses many wonderful probability applications from everyday life to help the reader develop a feel for probabilities. The second part, covering a wide range of topics, teaches clearly and simply the basics of probability. This fully revised third edition has been packed with even more exercises and examples, and it includes new sections on Bayesian inference, Markov chain Monte Carlo simulation, hitting probabilities in random walks and Brownian motion, and a new chapter on continuoustime Markov chains with applications. Here you will find all the material taught in an introductory probability course. The first part of the book, with its easygoing style, can be read by anybody with a reasonable background in high school mathematics. The second part of the book requires a basic course in calculus

Stochastic models : an algorithmic approach by
H. C Tijms(
Book
)
26 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and Italian and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Covering renewal and regenerative processes, discretetime and continuoustime Markov chains, Markovian decision processes, inventory and queueing theory the book will enable students to perform algorithmic analysis for specific problems. Chosen to illustrate the basic models and their associated solution methods, the examples are drawn from a variety of applications fields, such as inventory control, reliability, maintenance, insurance and teletraffic. Each chapter concludes with a range of interesting and thoughtprovoking exercises, some of which require the use of computer software. The accessible yet rigorous exposition ensures that the book will be an invaluable resource for senior undergraduate and graduate students of operations research, statistics and engineering

Probability : a lively introduction by
H. C Tijms(
Book
)
10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 easytofollow writing style provides a comprehensive, yet concise introduction to the subject. It covers all of the standard material for undergraduate and firstyeargraduatelevel 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

Basic probability : what every math student should know by
H. C Tijms(
Book
)
11 editions published between 2019 and 2021 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Written by international awardwinning probability expert Henk Tijms, Basic Probability: What Every Math Student Should Know presents the essentials of elementary probability. The book is primarily written for high school and college students learning about probability for the first time. In a highly accessible way, a modern treatment of the subject is given with emphasis on conditional probability and Bayesian probability, on striking applications of the Poisson distribution, and on the interface between probability and computer simulation. In modern society, it is important to be able to critically evaluate statements of a probabilistic nature presented in the media in order to make informed judgments. A basic knowledge of probability theory is indispensable to logical thinking and statistical literacy. The book provides this knowledge and illustrates it with numerous everyday situations."Back cover

Surprises in probability : seventeen short stories by
H. C Tijms(
)
10 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book bundles together a variety of probability applications through entertaining stories that will appeal to a broad readership. What are the best stopping rules for the dating problem, the ChowRobbins game and the devil's penny game? How the gambler's fallacy created the Venice53 hysteria in the national Italian lottery. These questions and many others are addressed in seventeen short chapters that can be read independently. The engaging stories are instructive as well and demonstrate valuable probabilistic ideas"
