This current publication comes from the 1st a part of the lecture notes the writer used for first-year graduate algebra path on the collage of Minnesota, Purdue college and Peking college. the purpose of this booklet isn't just to provide the coed easy accessibility to the fundamental wisdom of algebra, both for destiny development within the box of algebra, or for basic history info, but in addition to teach that algebra is actually a grasp key or "skeleton key" to many mathematical difficulties. the writer needs to give this booklet as an try and re-establish the contacts among algebra and different branches of arithmetic and sciences. Many examples and workouts are integrated to demonstrate the ability of intuitive methods to algebra.

If each choice is given a different name or title, such as when officers are named for a club, then order is also important, and we use the technique of counting permutations. To understand how to use the Multiplication Rule to count permutations, let’s look at a set of four elements, {A, B, C, D}.

Once we have converted a real-world problem to a mathematical problem, we can look for similar mathematical problems and then make use of standard tools and general techniques. These mathematical methods may not have been obvious to us when we were looking at the real-world problem. The mathematical models and techniques that you will be learning in this book are so general, in fact, that they are used in many, many different areas, including • Medical research • Quality control • Risk assessment Introduction to Probability and Its Applications 19 • Meteorology • Statistics • Stock market analysis • Quantum mechanics • Genetics • Epidemiology • Computer science • Communications technology • Cryptology • Forensic science • Thermodynamics • And even gambling In the chapters that follow, we will see many real-world situations that can be modeled by random processes.
