Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New York Springer Science+Business Media 2008Edition: 2nd ed.Description: xvi, 209 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.ISBN: 9780387781297.Subject(s): Chance | Mathematical statistics | ProbabilitiesDDC classification: 519.1 Summary: Chance continues to govern our lives in the 21st Century. From the genes we inherit and the environment into which we are born, to the lottery ticket we buy at the local store, much of life is a gamble. In business, education, travel, health, and marriage, we take chances in the hope of obtaining something better. Chance colors our lives with uncertainty, and so it is important to examine it and try to understand about how it operates in a number of different circumstances. Such understanding becomes simpler if we take some time to learn a little about probability, since probability is the natural language of uncertainty.
