Probability and Statistics: Theory and Exercise is a textbook focused on practical examples of probability theory and statistics, with the goal of giving readers a thorough understanding of mathematical relationships in these subjects. The book is designed for basic courses in probability and statistics, and is aimed primarily at non-specialists and beginner level students.

The book is divided into 2 sections, respectively.

Probability: Includes a primer on set theory, basic probability theory definitions and calculations, combinatorial analysis, random variables and distribution laws

Statistics: Covers basic concepts of descriptive statistics

Key features

  • - Simple, clear language for easy comprehension of key concepts
  • - Carefully chosen exercises with solutions for self-learning
  • - Over 40 Illustrations for clear explanations
  • - References for further reading and tutorials


Beginner-level students and non-experts.


We all know the importance of probability and statistical calculations in everyday life. The trend toward perfect precision requires not making errors; unfortunately, the error is human. Consequently; researchers are majorly interested in reducing this error, by means of the mastery of the world of chance which is really not as random as it seemed 500 years ago. Currently, we can anticipate events while knowing the pasts and the laws of evolution thanks to the laws of probability and data censuses. Therefore, we can learn the basics of probability and statistics has become indispensable to specialists in mathematics and economics, as well as to field engineers who have a large part of their duties based on statistical analyses.

This course is intended primarily for students of technical sciences at the undergraduate level; but it is also beneficial to those enrolled in master's program and even to those who have already graduated. Without a doubt, this course offers considerable help to the teachers, by numerous illustrative examples and exercises solved in detail with discussions.

I would like to thank all those who have posted detailed lessons and exercises on the subject of "probability and statistics" on the internet. I would like to specially thank Professor Mohamed AICHOUNI who honored me by writing the Forward page after consulting this book despite his other commitments.
