Rezensionen
"This text will fill a gap in the education of a sophisticated computer science student who has a firm base in mathematics and statistics." ( Computing Reviews , May 7, 2009)

"...this textbook would be ideal." ( The American Statistician , February 2006)

"This is really a statistics textbook written explicitly for undergraduate computer science majors...I found the numerous examples of the use of statistics within the field of computer science extremely informative." ( Technometrics , November 2004)

"Thorough, in-depth, relatively complete and rigorous introduction to the statistics a CS professional should know." ( American Mathematical Monthly , August 2004)

"This is a rigorous introductory text in probability and statistics, which also develops in a rigorous fashion all the necessary supporting mathematics beyond calculus and algebra." ( Mathematical Reviews , issue 2004i)

"...one-of-a-kind resource...proves an ideal resource for computer science students and practitioners interested in a probability study..." ( Zentralblatt Math , Vol. 1027, 2004)

"...presents introductory topics in probability and statistics with particular emphasis on concepts that arise in computer science..." ( Quarterly of Applied Mathematics , Vol. LXI, No. 4, December 2003)
