examples, and realworld data sets, the book incorporates clear
instructions on how to use the statistical packages Minitab®
and Microsoft® Office Excel® to analyze various data
sets. The book also features:
 Detailed discussions on sampling distributions, statistical estimation of population parameters, hypothesis testing, reliability theory, statistical quality control including Phase I and Phase II control charts, and process capability indices
 A clear presentation of nonparametric methods and simple and multiple linear regression methods, as well as a brief discussion on logistic regression method
 Comprehensive guidance on the design of experiments, including randomized block designs, one and twoway layout designs, Latin square designs, random effects and mixed effects models, factorial and fractional factorial designs, and response surface methodology
 A companion website containing data sets for Minitab and Microsoft Office Excel, as well as JMP ® routines and results
Assuming no background in probability and statistics, Statistics and Probability with Applications for Engineers and Scientists features a unique, yet triedandtrue, approach that is ideal for all undergraduate students as well as statistical practitioners who analyze and illustrate realworld data in engineering and the natural sciences.
