Basic probability theory

This is the first in a series of short books on probability theory and random processes for biomedical engineers. This text is written as an introduction to probability theory. The goal was to prepare students, engineers and scientists at all levels of background and experience for the application of this theory to a wide variety of problems—as well as pursue these topics at a more advanced level. The approach is to present a unified treatment of the subject. There are only a few key concepts involved in the basic theory of probability theory.

Finance has become increasingly more quantitative, drawing on techniques in probability and statistics that many finance practitioners have not had exposure to before. In order to keep up, you need a firm understanding of this discipline. Probability and Statistics for Finance addresses this issue by showing you how to apply quantitative methods to portfolios, and in all matter of your practices, in a clear, concise manner. Informative and accessible, this guide starts off with the basics and builds to an intermediate level of mastery. ...

This volume describes the essential tools and techniques of statistical signal processing. At every stage, theoretical ideas are linked to specific applications in communications and signal processing. The book begins with an overview of basic probability, random objects, expectation, and secondorder moment theory, followed by a wide variety of examples of the most popular random process models and their basic uses and properties.

This compendium aims at providing a comprehensive overview of the main topics that appear in any wellstructured course sequence in statistics for business and economics at the undergraduate and MBA levels. The idea is to supplement either formal or informal statistic textbooks such as, e.g., “Basic Statistical Ideas for Managers” by D.K. Hildebrand and R.L. Ott and “The Practice of Business Statistics: Using Data for Decisions” by D.S. Moore, G.P. McCabe, W.M. Duckworth and S.L. Sclove, with a summary of theory as well as with a couple of extra examples.

This work gives an overview of core topics in the “investment” side of finance, stressing the quantitative aspects of the subject. The presentation is at a moderately sophisticated level that would be appropriate for masters or early doctoral students in economics, engineering, finance, and mathematics. It would also be suitable for advanced and well motivated undergraduatesprovided they are adequately prepared in math, probability, and statistics.

This book is intended to serve as the textbook for a rstyear graduate course in econometrics. It can be used as a standalone text, or be used as a supplement to another text. Students are assumed to have an understanding of multivariate calculus, probability theory, linear algebra, and mathematical statistics. A prior course in undergraduate econometrics would be helpful, but not required. For reference, some of the basic tools of matrix algebra, probability, and statistics are reviewed in the Appendix....

In this chapter, we study the mathematical structure of a simple oneperiod model of a financial market. We consider a finite number of assets. Their initial prices at time t = 0 are known, their future prices at time t = 1 are described as random variables on some probability space. Trading takes place at time t = 0. Already in this simple model, some basic principles of mathematical finance appear very clearly. In Section 1.2, we single out those models which satisfy a condition of market efficiency: There are no trading opportunities which yield a profit without any downside risk.

Most raw ingredients will be labelled in bags, boxes or jars if in shipments, warehouses or in storerooms of pharmacies and retail outlets. The first step to identifying an ingredient is to compare the Roman, pinyin and/or Chinese characters to the name list in this guide. It is a matter of comparison and familiarisation with the characters and pinyin. If raw ingredients are not labelled and not obviously of interest (such as an animal horn or bones), it is best to refer to an expert or accept that identification is probably not possible.

When managers make choices or decisions under risk or uncertainty, they must somehow incorporate this risk into their decisionmaking process. This chapter presented some basic rules for managers to help them make decisions under conditions of risk and uncertainty. Conditions of risk occur when a manager must make a decision for which the outcome is not known with certainty.

This book is targeted at programmers who need to develop solutions using XML. Being a programmer myself, I know that theory without practical examples and applications can be tedious, and you probably want to get straight to realworld examples. You’re in luck, because this book is full of working examples—but not in this chapter. Some theory is necessary so that you have a fundamental understanding of XML. I’ll keep the theory of XML and related technologies to a minimum as I progress through the chapters, but we do need to cover some of the basics up front....

In the prediction or estimation of a random process from a related observation signal, the Bayesian philosophy is based on combining the evidence contained in the signal with prior knowledge of the probability distribution of the process.
