Discrete Distributions and Combinatorials

  • Byron P. Roe
Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Contemporary Physics book series (UTCP)


Most of the applications of probability theory require that we understand the properties of a few specific distributions that appear in a number of applications and that we further understand how to derive distributions if we need new ones. The concept of combinatorials is central to this task, and we will start by considering some combinatorial properties.
