Contents pt. I. Events and relations: alternative views. 1. Types of causality, set-theoretic and topological notions -- 2. Types of probability and measure-theoretic notions -- part II. Events and relations: linear representation. 3. Specification of relations: function, transformation, linear function -- 4. Measurement of "pairwise togetherness": simple regression, least squares fit -- 5. Measurement of sample characteristics: mean, variance, standard deviation, standard error of estimate -- 6. Measurement of "groupwise togetherness": product moment correlation -- 7. Application of regression: time-series analysis--straight-line fit -- part III. Events and relations: nonlinear representation. 8. Specification of events: nonlinear functions, method of moments -- 9. Measurement of Pearsonian parameters for coin toss data -- 10. Measurement of normal parameters for coin toss data, normal curve of error -- 11. Measurement of binomial parameters for coin toss data, binomial distribution -- part IV. Events and relations: underlying processes. 12. Bernoulli trials, generating functions -- 13. Markov chains, transition matrix -- 14. Poisson processes, service queues -- 15. Stochastic processes, absorbing barriers -- part V. Decisions and consequences: experimental and physical. 16. Type I and Type II errors -- 17. Neyman-Pearson power function and Wald's decision function -- part VI. Decisions and consequences: inference and implications. 18. Point estimation, interval estimation -- 19. t-distributions -- 20. Interval estimation, confidence intervals -- part VII. Decisions and consequences: randomness and risks. 21. Formal and empirical testing of Hypothesis I test of randomness assumption, Shewhart Cycle of Control of Product Quality -- 22. Formal and empirical testing of Hypothesis II acceptance sampling, operating characteristic curves.
