STAT 61900 - Probability Theory
Credit Hours: 3.00. Probability Theory is the foundation of statistical methodologies, which is fundamental in the practice of science. From this course students will get precise mathematical understanding of probabilities and sigma-algebras, random weak convergence, characteristic functions, the central limit theorem, Lebesgue decomposition, conditioning. Prerequisite: STAT 51900. Typically offered Spring.
3.000 Credit hours

Syllabus Available
Levels: Graduate, Professional, Undergraduate
Schedule Types: Lecture

Offered By: Regional Campus Only
Department: IUPUI Courses-IUPUI
