Math 431: Probability Theory
(Credit Hours:Lecture Hours:Lab Hours)
Axiomatic probability theory, conditional probability, discrete / continuous random variables, expectation, conditional expectation, moments, functions of random variables, multivariate distributions, laws of large numbers, central limit theorem.
Desired Learning Outcomes
The current prerequisite is linear algebra. Because of the centrality in Math 431 of joint distributions of continuous random variables, the department should consider adding multivariable calculus as a prerequisite.
