14 books of Sheldon M. Ross

The 5 edition of Ross’s continues to introduce aspiring and practicing actuaries, engineers, computer scientists and others to the practical aspects of constructing computerized simulation studies to analyze and interpret real phenomena. Readers learn to apply results of these analyses to problems in a wide variety of fields to obtain effective, accurate solutions and make predictions about future outcomes. This latest edition features all-­new material on variance reduction, including control variables and their use in estimating the expected return at blackjack and their relation to regression analysis. Additionally, the 5 edition expands on Markov chain monte carlo methods, and offers unique information on the alias method for generating discrete random variables. By explaining how a computer can be used to generate random numbers and how to use these random numbers to generate the behavior of a stochastic model over time, Ross’s Simulation, 5 edition presents the statistics . . .

This updated classic provides a superior introduction to applied probability and statistics for engineering or science majors. Author Sheldon Ross shows how probability yields insight into statistical problems, resulting in an intuitive understanding of the statistical procedures most often used by practicing engineers and scientists. Real data sets are incorporated in a wide variety of exercises and examples, and the enclosed CD-­ROM includes software that automates the required computations. The Third Edition includes new exercises, examples, and applications, updated statistical material, and more. New in this edition: * New exercises and data examples including: - The One-­sided Chebyshev Inequality for Data - The Logistics Distribution and Logistic Regression - Estimation and Testing in proofreader problems - Product Form Estimates of Life Distributions - Observational Studies * Updated statistical material * New, contemporary applications Hallmark features: * Reflects Sheldon . . .

In this 3rd edition revised text, master expositor Sheldon Ross has produced a unique work in introductory statistics. The text's main merits are the clarity of presentation, contemporary examples and applications from diverse areas, and an explanation of intuition and ideas behind the statistical methods. Concepts are motivated, illustrated and explained in a way that attempts to increase one's intuition. To quote from the preface, "It is only when a student develops a feel or intuition for statistics that she or he is really on the path toward making sense of data.­" Ross achieves this goal through a coherent mix of mathematical analysis, intuitive discussions and examples. Applications and examples refer to real-­world issues, such as gun control, stock price models, health issues, driving age limits, school admission ages, use of helmets, sports, scientific fraud and many others. Ancillary list: Instructor's Manual - . . .

This textbook on the basics of option pricing is accessible to readers with limited mathematical training. It is for both professional traders and undergraduates studying the basics of finance. Assuming no prior knowledge of probability, Sheldon M. Ross offers clear, simple explanations of arbitrage, the Black-­Scholes option pricing formula, and other topics such as utility functions, optimal portfolio selections, and the capital assets pricing model. Among the many new features of this third edition are new chapters on Brownian motion and geometric Brownian motion, stochastic order relations and stochastic dynamic programming, along with expanded sets of exercises and references for all the chapters.

Ross's classic bestseller, Introduction to Probability Models, has been used extensively by professionals and as the primary text for a first undergraduate course in applied probability. It provides an introduction to elementary probability theory and stochastic processes, and shows how probability theory can be applied to the study of phenomena in fields such as engineering, computer science, management science, the physical and social sciences, and operations research. With the addition of several new sections relating to actuaries, this text is highly recommended by the Society of Actuaries.­Ancillary list: Instructor's Manual - http:­//textbooks.­elsevier.­com/web/manuals.­aspx?­isbn=9780123743886 Student Solutions Manual - http:­//www.­elsevierdirect.­com/product.­jsp?­isbn=9780123756862#42 Sample Chapter, eBook - http:­//www.­elsevierdirect.­com/product.­jsp?­isbn=9780123756862New to this Edition: 65% new chapter material including coverage of finite capacity queues, insurance risk models . . .
