Course Objective

The first part of the course will cover basic concepts and methods from probability theory. The students are expected to gain a working knowledge in probability. In the second part of the course, we will cover a number of important classes of stochastic processes that are useful in the modeling of complex systems. These include Poisson and renewal processes, discrete and continuous-time Markov chains, and semi-Markov processes.


Calculus and Analytic Geometry; or consent of the instructor.
