Written by two leading statisticians, Statistics for Engineers and Physical Scientists, Third Edition, provides the necessary bridge between basic statistical theory and interesting applications. Students solve the same problems that engineers and scientists face, and have the opportunity to analyze real data sets. Larger-scale projects are a unique feature of this book, which let students analyze and interpret real data, while also encouraging them to conduct their own studies and compare approaches and results.

This book assumes a calculus background. It is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate engineering or physical science courses or for students taking an introductory course applied statistics.
