Math 541 Probability (Graduate)

This course focuses on the formulation of probability problems in a mathematical manner and the techniques for their solution. By the end of this course, students will be able to construct and use probability models to describe and analyze random phenomena, be able to model random phenomena using discrete random variables, be able to model random phenomena using continuous random variables, be able to model random phenomena using multivariate random variables, understand and be able to use moment-generating functions, understand and be able to apply limit theorems, and be able to compute probabilities using simulation via R/Rstudio.  Click here for syllabus.
