Prob/Stat for Data Sci: Math + R + Data

My new book, Probability and Statistics for Data Science: Math + R + Data, pub. by the CRC Press, was released on June 24!

This book arose from an open-source text I wrote and have been teaching from. The open source version will still be available, though rather different from the published one.

This is a math stat book, but different from all others, as the subtitle states: Math + R + Data. Even the topic ordering is rather different, with a goal of bringing in data science-relevant material as early as possible.

I’ve placed an excerpt from the book at I believe it epitomizes the intent and style of the book. Also, I’ve placed the front matter at

  1. Valuable book hits the sweet spot between computation, math and stats. I’m finding the topic mix to be well thought out. Is there a list of corrections, perhaps on the way?

  2. Hi, I have recently started your book, and I am really enjoying it! Are the solutions of the exercises available somewhere?
    Thank you very much!

      1. Thank you very much, I appreciate it!
        My background is not on maths and stats so the solutions are really helpful for feedback.

      1. Dear Norman Matloff, I know you are working on The Art of Data Science and regtools, but maybe one of your students can post his solutions to the exercises in PSforDS.

        1. I do have some solutions, at It’s true that I need more. If there are any problems of particular interest to you, I’ll write those up right away.
