  • Uses the relatively simple multiple regression model to analyze the results of designed experiments and time series models in addition to sampled data
  • Includes Matlab and R code
  • Adds more advanced topics such as advanced random number generation, stochastic simulations, Markov chains in discrete time, Markov chains in continuous time, and reliability and lifetime distributions
  • Emphasizes random number generation and simulation
  • Provides informal mathematical explanations for all models used


This is a textbook for an undergraduate course in statistics for engineers with a minimal calculus prerequisite. The second edition differs from existing books in three main aspects: it is the only introductory statistics textbook written for engineers that uses R throughout the text, there is an emphasis on statistical methods most relevant to engineers that are illustrated with practical applications, and there is an emphasis on random number generation and simulation, all very useful features in engineering.
