Among the topics are discrete random variables
and probability distributions, joint probability distributions and random samples, tests of hypotheses based on a single sample, simple linear regression and correlation, and distribution-free procedures.
The text begins with sets and functions, then covers combinatorics, probability, conditional probability, discrete random variables
, and densities.
