An Introduction to Mathematical Statistics and Its Applications Summary

An Introduction to Mathematical Statistics and Its Applications: United States Edition by Richard J. Larsen

For courses in Mathematical Statistics.

Renowned for its high-quality, real-world case studies and examples, this highly structured text is designed to allow students with an established mathematics background to pursue a more rigorous, advanced treatment of probability and statistics. It shows HOW to use statistical methods, WHEN to use them, and reinforces the calculus that students have covered in previous courses.
