While many curricula include an introductory course on probability, there is a recognized need for further study of the subject within the context of computer science. This book develops topics in probability with this particular emphasis. It begins with basic definitions of probability distributions and random variables and then elaborates on their properties and applications. Next, it treats the most common discrete and continuous distributions, shows their use in decision and estimation problems, and constructs computer algorithms for generating observations.
