Textbook
Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers, 5th EditionMarch 2010, ©2011

With a focus on how statistical tools are integrated into the engineering problemsolving process, all major aspects of engineering statistics are covered, including descriptive statistics, probability and probability distributions, statistical test and confidence intervals for one and two samples, building regression models, designing and analyzing engineering experiments, and statistical process control.
Developed with sponsorship from the National Science Foundation, this text incorporates many insights from the authors' teaching experience along with feedback from numerous adopters of previous editions.

 Nonparametric Statistics is now integrated into mainstream hypothesis testing in Chapters 9 and 10, rather than in a separate chapter (formerly Chapter 15 in the Fourth Edition).
 pvalue: increased emphasis on pvalue in hypothesis testing,
 Beta distribution has been added
 Practical interpretations: brief comments have been added at the end of many examples to emphasise the practical interpretations of the results.
 New homework problems: 200 new homework problems have been added
 Treatment of all topics is oriented towards real engineering applications. In the probability chapters, the authors do not emphasise counting methods or artificial applications such as gambling.
Real Data, Real Engineering Situations:
Examples and exercises throughout text use real data and real engineering situations. This motivates students to learn new concepts and gives them a taste of practical engineering experience.
Probability:
 Coverage of probability is lively and interesting. It is complete but concise so as not to take over the content of the entire text.
Regression Modeling, DOE, and SQC:
 An unusually thorough amount of coverage of regression modeling, design of engineering experiments, and statistical process control makes the book useful as a reference for many important topics.
