Randomization and probabilistic techniques play an important role in modern computer science, with applications ranging from combinatorial optimization and machine learning to communication networks and secure protocols. This textbook is designed to accompany a one or twosemester course for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students in computer science and applied mathematics. It gives an excellent introduction to the probabilistic techniques and paradigms used in the development of probabilistic algorithms and analyses. It assumes only an elementary background in discrete mathematics and gives a rigorous yet accessible treatment of the material, with numerous examples and applications. The first half of the book covers core material, including random sampling, expectations, Markov's inequality, Chevyshev's inequality, Chernoff bounds, balls and bins models, the probabilistic method, and Markov chains. In the second half, the authors delve into more advanced topics such as continuous probability, applications of limited independence, entropy, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods, coupling, martingales, and balanced allocations.With its comprehensive selection of topics, along with many examples and exercises, this book is an indispensable teaching tool.

Margo Anderson Get eBook Probability and Computing
Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these I can get now!

Lisa Doran Best website free download ebook
I was suspicious at first when i got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited i found this online library....many thanks Kisses

Markus Jensen How to download Probability and Computing eBook?
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook

Roddy Murray
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
