    EVERYDAY PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS: HEALTH, ELECTIONS, GAMBLING AND WAR (2ND EDITION)

    Book ID/图书代码: 14600020C00008

    English Summary/英文概要: Probability and statistics impinge on the life of the average person in a variety of ways -- as is suggested by the title of this book. Very often information is provided that is factually accurate but intended to give a biased view. This book presents the important results of probability and statistics without making heavy mathematical demands on the reader. It should enable an intelligent reader to properly assess statistical information and to understand that the same information can be presented in different ways.In this second edition the author presents a new chapter exploring science and society including the way that scientists communicate with the public on current topics, such as global warming. The book also investigates pensions and pension policy, and how they are influenced by changing actuarial tables.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要:

    Awards/获奖情况:This book presents important results of probability and statistics without making heavy mathematical demands to the reader. Either mature readers who long ago lost contact with formal mathematics or younger ones, who struggle somewhat with the subject, may find it helpful to test their new knowledge by tackling some problems posed at the end of each chapter ... reading the solution may help to strengthen his, or her, understanding. It should enable an intelligent reader to properly assess statistical information and to understand that the same information can be presented in different ways. --Zentralblatt MATH
