Probability and Stochastic Processes: A Friendly Introduction for Electrical and Computer Engineers  
By Roy D. Yates & David J. Goodman, ISBN 0-471-17837-3 The goal of this text is to help the reader grasp the concepts of probabilityand stochastic processes, then apply them. The entire text adheres toa single model that begins with an experiment consisting of a procedureand observations. The concepts are presented throughout the book as asequence of building blocks that are clearly identified as either an axiom,definition, or theorem. Intuitive explanations of new concepts are interspersedwith mathematical statements.
