From Algorithms to Z-Scores: Probabilistic and Statistical Modeling in Computer Science

The materials here form a textbook for a course in mathematical probability and statistics for computer science students. "Why is this course different from all other courses?" * Computer science examples are used throughout, in areas such as: computer networks; data and text mining; computer security; remote sensing; computer performance evaluation; software engineering; data management; etc. * The R statistical/data manipulation language is used throughout. Since this is a computer science audience, a greater sophitication in programming can be assumed. It is recommended that my R tutorial, R for Programmers, be used as a supplement. * Throughout the units, mathematical theory and applications are interwoven, with a strong emphasis on modeling: What do probabilistic models really mean, in...
