    Textbook Recommendations

    Would anyone be able to recommend some titles for me?

    Currently, I am using this book: Introduction to Probability - Dimitri P. Bertsekas(Author), John N. Tsitsiklis(Author)


    Ideally I need books which covers basics such as: the fundamentals of probability theory (probabilistic models, discrete and continuous random variables, multiple random variables, and limit theorems)

    but more importantly a bit more advanced topics such as:
    transforms, sums of random variables, least squares estimation, the bivariate normal distribution, and a fairly detailed introduction to Bernoulli, Poisson, and Markov processes.

    Thanks!

    Hey 99.95.

    For Markov processes I would recommend the text by Sheldon M. Ross:

    Introduction to Probability Models, Tenth Edition: Sheldon M. Ross: 9780123756862: Amazon.com: Books

    As for the other topics, a lot of introductory textbooks do decent job of explaining the material.
