EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The best way to master probability is to work problems—lots of them. Through repeated practice, formerly fuzzy concepts begin to make sense, and solution strategies become clear. The Probability Workbook is a companion to The Probability Handbook, which covers counting techniques, probability rules, discrete probability distributions, and continuous probability distributions. This workbook offers more than 400 problems covering a wide range of probability techniques and distributions. From poker problems, to famous problems by luminaries in the field such as Pascal, Fermat, Bertrand, Fisher, and Deming, this one-of-a-kind book gives detailed numerical solutions and explanations presented in a conversational way. There are general probability questions involving travel itineraries, baseball, and birth orders, as well as more real-world applications such as quality inspection, reliability, statistical process control, and simulation. Problems applicable to the manufacturing, healthcare, business, and hospitality and tourism industries are included. For example, how many ways can the letters Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y be arranged? In poker, how many ways can a player be dealt a royal flush? If 4.5% of a hospital’s admissions are due to community-acquired and records show that the probability that a pneumonia patient is readmitted within 30 days of discharge is 14.6%. The readmission rate for all other diagnoses is 12.1%, what is the probability that a patient is readmitted given that he had pneumonia? For easy reference, each numbered problem in the workbook is categorized by broad topic area, and then by a more detailed, descriptive title. In addition to the topic and title, the level of difficulty is displayed for each problem using a die icon. This workbook is an invaluable resource for the probability portions of ASQ’s CQE, CSSGB, CSSBB, CSSMBB, and CRE exams. For those interested in taking a certification exam, the 50 multiple-choice questions found on the CD-ROM will be a good study resource. The questions draw from topics throughout the text, presented in random order.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Probability is tough – even those fairly well versed in statistical analysis balk at the prospect of tackling it. Many probability concepts seem counterintuitive at first, and the successful student must in effect train him or herself to think in a totally new way. Mastery of probability takes a lot of time, and only comes from solving many, many problems. The aim of this text and its companion, The Probability Workbook (coming soon), is to present the subject of probability as a tutor would. Probability concepts are explained in everyday language and worked examples are presented in abundance. In addition to paper-and-pencil solutions, solution strategies using Microsoft Excel functions are given. All mathematical symbols are explained, and the mathematical rigor is kept on an algebra level; calculus is avoided. This book is written for quality practitioners who are currently performing statistical and probability analyses in their workplaces, and for those seeking to learn probability concepts for the American Society for Quality (ASQ) Certified Quality Engineer, Reliability Engineer, Six Sigma Green Belt, Black Belt, or Master Black Belt exams.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book presents a comprehensive overview of research and projects regarding climate change adaptation in coastal areas, providing government and nongovernment bodies with a sound basis to promote climate change adaptation efforts.According to the 5th Assessment Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), coastal zones are highly vulnerable to climate change, and climate-driven impacts may be further exacerbated by other human-induced pressures. Apart from sea-level rise, which poses a threat to both human well-being and property, extreme events such as cyclones and storm surges lead not only to significant damage to property and infrastructure, but also to salt water intrusion, groundwater salinisation, and intensified soil erosion, among many other problems. There are also numerous negative impacts on the natural environment and biodiversity, including damage to important wetlands and habitats that safeguard the overall ecological balance, and consequently the provision of ecosystem services and goods on which the livelihoods of millions of people depend. As such, there is a need for a better understanding of how climate change affects coastal areas and communities, and for the identification of processes, methods and tools that can help the countries and communities in coastal areas to adapt and become more resilient. It is against this background that this book has been produced. It includes papers written by scholars, social movements, practitioners and members of governmental agencies, pursuing research and/or executing climate change projects in coastal areas and working with coastal communities. Focusing on “managing climate change in coastal regions”, it showcases valuable lessons learned from research and field projects and presents best practices to foster climate change adaptation in coastal areas and communities, which can be implemented elsewhere.
