### 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.
### Prerequisites

Calculus and Analytic Geometry; or consent of the instructor.
