I bought this because I used to be not so good at probabilities. The book is very entertaining and it seems to cover most simple probability ideas.

I was surprised how people with BAC+6 specialized in probabilities (even from the "famous" DEA El Karoui) could not find the answer of some of those elementary probability problems.

A l'aide de problèmes concrets dont la complexité croit au cours des chapitres, on progresse dans le dédale des calculs sur les probabilités.

HASH(0xa12ce078) étoiles sur 5 A look at the essence of probability, at all levels 4 juillet 2001
Par Mary P. Campbell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If Mosteller hadn't included the solutions, this would have been a short book indeed -- 56 problems simply stated in 14 pages. You'll soon find, however, that some problems, which are the shortest to set up, take a great deal of brainpower. It starts innocently enough - some simple-sounding problems on socks in drawers, flipping coins, and rolling dice. Soon enough, you end up with paper black with numbers and pictures of a flipping coin (how thick does a coin need to be so that it lands on its =side= with probability 1/3?) If you get drawn in deep (as I did), you may even wonder what probability really means.
Some of the problems are classic, such as the problem of how many people would it take for the probability that at least two of them have the same birthday is greater than a half (I'll give this answer away: 23. But do you know why?) One of the dice problems actually recalls the history of the development of probability as a separate mathematical field -- problem #19, involving dice bets that Samuel Pepys asked Isaac Newton to figure out. Some of the problems are simply openers for entire vistas in probability - avoid problems #51 and #52 if you wish to not become enmeshed in concerns of random walks (remember that one of Einstein's earliest papers was on Brownian motion - a molecular random walk.) I used problem #25, which deal with "random chords on a circle", to explore this classic probability paradox - I've ended up with three different figures, all of which seem plausible! It gets deep to what one means by "random chord".
This book, though so thin, is inexhaustible in spawning disturbing questions about probability; even more useful is that there are questions for people at =any= level of knowledge of probability. Those who wish to think about "counting" problems (like those involving rolling dice, or pulling balls out of urns) will find those here. Those who have an interest in continuous probability will find problems which will interest them. And those old probability pros who ponder the essence of chance will find meat for some productive chewing.

HASH(0xa12ce480) étoiles sur 5 I passed my PhD qualifier because of this book! 12 juin 2000
Par UNPINGCO - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Excellent selection of problems and very explanatory and detailed solutions. This gets to the ideas behind many of the popular methods in probability, like maximum likelihood. The concepts are given centerstage and provide insights on "how to think" about many problems in probability.

HASH(0xa12ce4f8) étoiles sur 5 useful, effective fun 1 février 2002
Par mcnicely - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Working through the colorful problems in this book is a great way to (re)learn and apply basic probability principles. There is a great deal of independence between problem so you are never quite sure how tough or easy the next one will be. On the other hand, several of the problems are clearly follow-ons that allow the exploration or expansion of some of the more interesting issues.
Though I've worked through the problems a couple of times, I bought a replacement copy when my original was "permanently borrowed" from my desk at work.

HASH(0xa12ce2a0) étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable 14 octobre 2000
Par James M. Cargal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
There are other books on problems in probablity. However, this book has problems that are interesting (often counterintuitive). They are well written as are the solutions. Much of the book is at the pre-calculus level but the problems are not trivial; neither are they arcane. Many teachers use this book as a source of problems. It is great for all students of probability.

HASH(0xa12ce9e4) étoiles sur 5 detailed instructive solutions 1 juin 2001
Par Ken Braithwaite - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The problems range from easy to incredibly hard. They are chosen to illustrate points or techniques. Many also have a touch of humour. You will learn a lot from this book. Few theorems are mentioned! Fun, cheap, instructive, amusing.
