Book Title: Probability and Stochastic Processes: A Friendly Introduction for Electrical and Computer Engineers

Author: Roy D. Yates and David J. Goodman

Book Description:

This is an introductory text for probability, a fundamental mathematical tool for many sub-areas of electrical engineering. It not only introduces the subject that is often perceived as the most intellectually challenging material in the electrical engineering curriculum with the rigor it deserves, but it does so in a manner that is accessible to any undergraduate student in engineering and science, and makes it fun. This is a book that I model my teaching after, in particular with respect to providing fundamentals of concepts and giving relevant real life examples. Ultimately, the reader takes away not only a solid foundation in the subject matter, but also valuable life lessons as to how to approach risk management and probabilistic actions, and perhaps a glimpse in to "the road not taken."
