Random Phenomena: Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers

Random Phenomena: Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers Lowest new price: $116.33
Lowest used price: $36.94
List price: $159.95
Author: Babatunde A. Ogunnaike
Brand: CRC Press

Many of the problems that engineers face involve randomly varying phenomena of one sort or another. However, if characterized properly, even such randomness and the resulting uncertainty are subject to rigorous mathematical analysis.

Taking into account the uniquely multidisciplinary demands of 21st-century science and engineering, Random Phenomena: Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers provides students with a working knowledge of how to solve engineering problems that involve randomly varying phenomena. Basing his approach on the principle of theoretical foundations before application, Dr. Ogunnaike presents a classroom-tested course of study that explains how to master and use probability and statistics appropriately to deal with uncertainty in standard problems and those that are new and unfamiliar.

Giving students the tools and confidence to formulate practical solutions to problems, this book offers many useful features, including:

  • Unique case studies to illustrate the fundamentals and applications of probability and foster understanding of the random variable and its distribution

  • Examples of development, selection, and analysis of probability models for specific random variables

  • Presentation of core concepts and ideas behind statistics and design of experiments

  • Selected "special topics," including reliability and life testing, quality assurance and control, and multivariate analysis
  • As classic scientific boundaries continue to be restructured, the use of engineering is spilling over into more non-traditional areas, ranging from molecular biology to finance. This book emphasizes fundamentals and a "first principles" approach to deal with this evolution. It illustrates theory with practical examples and case studies, equipping readers to deal with a wide range of problems beyond those in the book.

    About the Author:
    Professor Ogunnaike is Interim Dean of Engineering at the University of Delaware. He is the recipient of the 2008 American Automatic Control Council's Control Engineering Practice Award, the ISA's Donald P. Eckman Education Award, the Slocomb Excellence in Teaching Award, and was elected into the US National Academy of Engineering in 2012.

    Lowest used price: $171.63
    List price: $221.00

    Pleural effusions, left and right heart dysfunction, mediastinal nodal pathology, and pulmonary embolism are just a few of the many thoracic diseases which can be diagnosed with the help of ultrasound techniques! Chest sonography has become an established procedure in the stepwise imaging diagnosis of pulmonary, cardiac, and pleural disease. It is the method of choice for many diseases and allows the investigator to make an unequivocal diagnosis without exposing the patient to costly and stressful procedures. This book, volume 37 in the well-known Progress in Respiratory Research series, presents the state of the art in clinical chest ultrasonography. As implied by its title, it covers all aspects of ultrasound involving the chest, at the same time differentiating between routine and emergency procedures. Basic elements such as indications, investigational techniques and imaging artifacts are detailed in separate chapters. The large number of excellent illustrations and the compact text provide concise and easy-to-assimilate information about the diagnostic procedure. Apart from the printed still pictures, the book comes with a complimentary online repository containing a variety of key videos. Each chapter presents an autonomous concise overview of indications, methods, diagnoses and pitfalls and can be used as a systematic review. It is written by leading experts as a guide by clinicians for clinicians and is a must for physicians, pulmonologists, intensivists, as well as all doctors with an interest in chest medicine.
