Everyone should find something of interest here: philosophers and
mathematicians may focus on the sections on philosophical matters of the
probability model and decisional matters, students and nonmathematicians
can find solid A to Z teaching material about Probability Theory and the
practical person can find all the tools needed to apply and perform
probability calculus without a teacher.
About the Author
Catalin Barboianu (born in 1968, in Craiova, Romania) is a mathematician
and author. He graduated Faculty of Mathematics, at University of
Bucharest, in 1992, with a master of science in Probability and Mathematical
Statistics. He studied under great scientific names like Solomon Marcus,
Constantin Craciun and Ion Cuculescu. He worked early in his career on
topology, mathematical analysis, probability theory, mathematical modeling
and also on philosophy of mathematics. However, his most important
contribution was on decision theory, placing the concept of
probabilitybased strategy onto a firm mathematical foundation. From 2001,
his fields of expertise moved to applied mathematics, especially on
applications of probability theory in daily life. Since 2003, his work
focused on application of probability theory in gaming. His books have a
guide style and primly address to nonmathematicians. He also published
several articles on leading academic and gaming industry as well and
became a recognized authority on mathematics of games and gambling. He is
also an active member of MAA (Mathematical Association of America) and SIAM
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics).
