Introduction to Probability and Statistics for Engineers and Scientists
Author: Sheldon M. Ross

Best-selling and renowned author Sheldon Ross’s latest revision emphasizes how probability informs statistical problems and provides a useful introduction to students, working engineers, and researchers alike.

Introduction to Probability and Statistics for Engineers and Scientists, Sixth Edition, uniquely emphasizes how probability informs statistical problems, thus helping readers develop an intuitive understanding of the statistical procedures commonly used by practicing professional engineers and scientists. Utilizing real data from actual studies across life science, engineering, computing and business, this useful introduction supports readers’ comprehension through a wide variety of exercises and examples. End-of-chapter reviews of materials highlight key ideas, also discuss the risks associated with the practical application of each material. In the new edition, coverage includes information on Big Data and the use of R.

MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving

MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving, the winner of TAA’s 2017 Textbook Excellence Award (“Texty”), guides the reader through both programming and built-in functions to easily exploit MATLAB’s extensive capabilities for tackling engineering and scientific problems. Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book starts with programming concepts, such as variables, assignments, and selection statements, moves on to loops, and then solves problems by using the programming concept and MATLAB. The fifth edition has been updated to reflect the functionality of the current version of MATLAB (R2018a), including the addition of local functions in scripts, the new string type, coverage of recently introduced functions to import data from websites, and updates to the Live Editor and App Designer.

Key Features:

  • Presents programming concepts and MATLAB built-in functions side by side, giving students the ability to program efficiently and exploit the power of MATLAB to solve technical problems.
  • Offers sections on common pitfalls and programming guidelines that direct students to best practice procedures.
  • Tests conceptual understanding of the material with Quick Questions! and Practice sections within each chapter.


Foundational life science research powers new advances in medicine and health. Elsevier’s Biochemistry, Genetics, and Molecular Biology ebooks span basic biology and medicine, advancing our understanding of the molecular processes underpinning life, as well as normal (healthy) human development and disease pathogenesis.
