40 Puzzles and Problems in Probability and Mathematical Statistics Hardback
Part of the Problem Books in Mathematics series
This book is based on the view that cognitive skills are best acquired by solving challenging, non-standard probability problems. Many puzzles and problems presented here are either new within a problem solving context (although as topics in fundamental research they are long known) or are variations of classical problems which follow directly from elementary concepts.
A small number of particularly instructive problems is taken from previous sources which in this case are generally given.
This book will be a handy resource for professors looking for problems to assign, for undergraduate math students, and for a more general audience of amateur scientists.
