**Applied statistics and probability for engineers**

Author: Douglas C. Montgomery, George C. Runger.

4th ed. – Hoboken, N.J. : John Wiley & Sons, 2007. – xvi, 768 p. : ill. ; 26 cm

ISBN: 9780471794738

This book features real engineering situations, and real engineering data. With Montgomery and Runger’s bestselling “Engineering Statistics” text, you can learn how to apply statistics to real engineering situations. The text shows you how to use statistical methods to design and develop new products, and new manufacturing systems and processes. You’ll gain a better understanding of how these methods are used in everyday work, and get a taste of practical engineering experience through real world, engineering based examples and exercises. Now revised, this Fourth Edition of “Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers” features many new homework exercises, including a greater variation of problems and more computer problems. Key features are: the text treats all topics in a way that reflects today s engineering realities; in the probability chapters, the authors emphasize engineering specific examples, rather than counting methods or artificial applications such as gambling; examples and exercises throughout the text use real data and real engineering situations; and, coverage of probability is lively and interesting. It is complete but concise so as not to take over the content of the entire text. Thorough coverage of regression modeling, design of engineering experiments, and statistical process control from experts in these topics makes the book especially useful as a reference.

**Hydrosystems engineering uncertainty analysis **

Author: Yeou-Koung Tung, Ben-Chie Yen.

Library code: FSE (1)

ISBN: 0071451595

Failure of hydrosystems, such as dams, levees, storm sewers, or pollution control systems, pose threats to the public safety and health as well as potentially inflict enormous damages on properties and environments. Many failures of hydrosystems are mainly attributed by the existence of various uncertainties, including inherent natural randomness and the lack of complete understanding of involved geophysical processes. It is therefore essential to systematically quantify the degree of uncertainty for the problem in hand so that reliability assessment and risk-based design of hydrosystems can be made. The conventional approach of frequency analysis of heavy rainfalls or large floods consider only portion of the uncertainties involved in hydrosystem engineering problems.Over the past two decades or so, there has been a steady growth on the development and application of uncertainty analysis techniques in hydrosystems engineering and other disciplines. The aim of this book is to bring together these uncertainty analysis techniques in one book and to demonstrate their applications and limitations for a wide variety of hydrosystem engineering problems.

Data Mining and Statistics for Decision Making — Stéphane Tufféry, Universitie of Paris-Dauphine, France — Data mining is the process of automatically searching large volumes of data for models and patterns using computational techniques from statistics, machine learning and information theory; it is the ideal tool for such an extraction of knowledge. Data mining is usually associated with a business or an organization’s need to identify trends and profiles, allowing, for example, retailers to discover patterns on which to base marketing objectives. This book looks at both classical and modern methods of data mining, such as clustering, discriminate analysis, decision trees, neural networks and support vector machines along with illustrative examples throughout the book to explain the theory of these models. Recent methods such as bagging and boosting, decision trees, neural networks, support vector machines and genetic algorithm are also discussed along with their advantages and disadvantages.

Sandra Schlotzhauer s Elementary Statistics Using JMP(R) provides a guide for doing what the title promises, getting basic statistical analyses from JMP. The book begins with descriptions of getting data into JMP, progresses through graphical and data summary methods, and moves into topics of statistical inference. Later chapters show analysis of variance and regression analysis. She clearly describes how to use the multitude of tools available in JMP in a way that takes the guesswork out of the software. The book is consistent in showing the right amount of material to get readers out of the woods, but not overwhelm them with details. Her long experience with using JMP in the real world is reflected by the presentation of the techniques that every data analyst needs. Elementary Statistics Using JMP(R) will be useful for practical statistical analysis and also as a companion to statistical text books for college and university courses. –Ramon C.

Analytic combinatorics aims to enable precise quantitative predictions of the properties of large combinatorial structures. The theory has emerged over recent decades as essential both for the analysis of algorithms and for the study of scientific models in many disciplines, including probability theory, statistical physics, computational biology, and information theory. With a careful combination of symbolic enumeration methods and complex analysis, drawing heavily on generating functions, results of sweeping generality emerge that can be applied in particular to fundamental structures such as permutations, sequences, strings, walks, paths, trees, graphs and maps. This account is the definitive treatment of the topic. The authors give full coverage of the underlying mathematics and a thorough treatment of both classical and modern applications of the theory. The text is complemented with exercises, examples, appendices and notes to aid understanding. The book can be used for an advanced undergraduate or a graduate course, or for self-study.
