This module aims to introduce the students to the main techniques used when dealing with several random variables. To develop the students ability to solve problems of a probabilistic nature. To motivate and explain many of the notions of convergence of sequences of random variables. To prove some of the main limit theorems. To discuss random walks. Students will attend lectures on the course material and will work, independently, to solve problems on topics related to the course material. The students will have an opportunity to review their solutions, with guidance, at weekly tutorials.
1. express probabilities in terms of multible integrals and be able to evaluate such integrals
2. state selected definitions and theorems
3. solve problems that require the use of either one, several or infinitely many random variables
4. demonstrate an understanding of concepts by use of examples or counterexamples
5. explain arguments used to prove selected theorems
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
