The theory of probability is a powerful tool that helps electrical and computer engineers to explain, model, analyze, and design the technology they develop. The text begins at the advanced undergraduate level, assuming only a modest knowledge of probability, and progresses through more complex topics mastered at graduate level. The first five chapters cover the basics of probability and both discrete and continuous random variables. The later chapters have a more specialized coverage, including random vectors, Gaussian random vectors, random processes, Markov Chains, and convergence. Describing tools and results that are used extensively in the field, this is more than a textbook; it is also a reference for researchers working in communications, signal processing, and computer network traffic analysis. With over 300 worked examples, some 800 homework problems, and sections for exam preparation, this is an essential companion for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

John A. Gubner received his Ph.D. in 1988 from the University of Maryland at College Park, after which he joined the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he is currently a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research interests include ultra-wideband communications, point processes and shot noi...

Editorial Reviews

"Probability and Random Processes for Electrical and Computer Engineers stands alone as a textbook that encourages readers to work through and obtain working knowledge of probability and random processes."
