Prerequisite: "MTH4101 MTH4107"
This module develops some of the ideas first introduced in Introduction to Probability. It will cover five main
topics: how to compute probabilities and expectations by a process called conditioning; random walks and other
discrete branching processes; continuous methods of conditioning; continuous probability models such as Poisson
processes; and some very useful limit theorems. The material is important for applications in financial and
actuarial mathematics, in the physical and life sciences, and for more advanced probability modules.
