This textbook introduces the mathematical concepts a methods that underlie statistics. The course is unified, in the sense that no prior knowledge of probability theory is assumed, being developed as needed. The book is committed to both a high level of mathematical seriousness a to an intimate connection with application. The text is aimed at the upper undergraduate or the beginning Masters program level. It assumes the usual two-year college mathematics sequence, including an introduction to multiple integrals, matrix algebra a infinite series.Theorem (m.g.f. of a sum). For X and Z ... Then using the product formula above repeatedly gets us the m.g.f. of 7: Proposition. ... Our version is, of course, easier to interpret in problems like the one about satellite maintenance.)
