Probability with R: An Introduction with Computer Science Applications
This book is offered as afirstintroduction to probability and its application to computer
disciplines. It has grown from a one-semester course delivered over the last several
years to students reading for a degree in computing at Dublin City University. Students
of computing seem to be able happily to think about database, computer architecture,
language design, software engineering, operating systems, and then to freeze up when
it comes to "probability" and wonder what it might have to do with computing.
Convincing undergraduates of the relevance of probability to computing is one of the
objectives of this book.
