These materials have been developed during the past several years. I would like to thank some of the people who have made a variety of contributions.
Zaven Karian from Denison University did the major development of the MAPLE procedures that are used. In fact, he has developed more than 100 procedures that supplement the MAPLE V Computer Algebra System. They are available as a MAPLE package. For more information contact him at Karian@Denison.edu or see his web page: http://www.dension.edu/mathsci/faculty/karian, or better yet, go to Waterloo MAPLE to download the supplement from the following web page:
Exercises have been written for a year long course in mathematical statistics and probability and are published in "PROBABILITY and STATISTICS: EXPLORATIONS WITH MAPLE", second edition, that was written by Zaven A. Karian and Elliot A. Tanis, published by Prentice Hall, 1999.
As a part of our computer based laboratory that currently uses MAPLE, many Hope College students have contributed to my understanding of MAPLE and the way it can be used for solving a variety of problems. In particular, Hope College students Bryan Goodman, Joshua Levy, John Krueger, and Michael Van Opstall have been very helpful and I thank them for their contributions.
