40 puzzles and problems in probability and mathematical statistics / Wolfgang Schwarz

Auteur: Schwarz, Wolfgang (1934-2013) - AuteurType de document: Livre numérique Collection: Problem books in mathematics Langue: anglaisÉditeur: New York : Springer, 2008 ISBN: 9780387735122 Note: Forty puzzles and problems in probability and mathematical statistics are listed in the book by Wolfgang Schwarz. First, the reader is confronted with these puzzles and problems and asked to think about them as well as to think about possible solutions to the problems. If the problems are too difficult for the reader to be solved by himself, in the second part of the book hints are given for each problem how to proceed to find the solution. Again, if these hints are insufficient for the reader to solve the problem or puzzle, the final part of the book contains the formal solutions in great details. The puzzles and problems listed in the book are very stimulating and provocative in the sense of forcing the reader’s ambition before accepting help in form of hints or complete solutions. The puzzles and problems are taken from probability theory as well as from applied probability in the field of mathematical statistics.
