Scientists and engineers in optics are increasingly confronted with problems that are of a random nature and that require a working knowledge of probability and statistics for their solution. This book develops these subjects within the context of optics, using a problem-solving approach. All methods are explicitly derived and can be traced back to three simple axioms given at the outset. This third edition contains many new applications to optical and physical phenomena, including a method of exactly estimating probability laws.A Problem Solving Approach Roy Frieden. 10.3.2 Illustrative Example At a party for 27 people, prizes of the following kind were to be distributed one to a person: 4 noisemakers, 10 paper hats, 8 balloons, and 5 water pistols. All the noisemakers are identical, etc. for the other prizes. ... The occurrence rate of an event is to be distinguished from its corresponding theoretical probability, which may not beanbsp;...
