By Gunnar Blom,Lars Holst,Dennis Sandell

We, the authors of this ebook, are 3 ardent devotees of probability, or a few­ what extra accurately, of discrete chance. once we have been amassing the fabric, we felt that one targeted excitement of the sphere lay in its evocation of an prior age: a lot of our 'probabilistic forefathers' have been dexterous solvers of discrete difficulties. we are hoping that this excitement can be transmitted to the readers. the 1st problem-book of an analogous variety as ours may be Mosteller's famous Fifty hard difficulties in likelihood (1965). in all likelihood, our booklet is the second one. The publication comprises a hundred twenty five difficulties and snapshots from the realm of prob­ skill. A 'problem' commonly ends up in a question with a distinct solution. A 'snapshot' is both an image or a bird's-eye view of a few probabilistic box. the choice is, after all, hugely subjective, and we've not even attempted to hide all components of the topic systematically. restrict theorems look basically seldom, for differently the ebook may became unduly huge. we wish to country emphatically that we've got now not written a textbook in chance, yet fairly a e-book for shopping via whilst occupying an easy-chair. for this reason, rules and effects are frequently placed forth with no equipment of formulation and derivations; the conscientious readers, who are looking to penetrate the entire clockwork, will quickly need to circulation to their desks and make the most of acceptable tools.
