Description

This course introduces some of the most useful probability concepts and models that are widely used in biology, medicine, economics, finance, engineering, physics and many other areas. The models that will be covered are Markov chains and Poisson processes.

Learning Outcomes

  • Be able to identify, formulate and solve certain probability problems;
  • understand the model assumptions and mathematical properties of some common
    random processes, which may include Markov chains, random walks, Poisson
    processes and martingales;
  • be able to use these models in simple applications.

Pre-requisites

Either a) MATH199; or
b) 15 points from MATH102 or
EMTH118, and another 15 points from 100 level STAT, DATA, MATH, or
EMTH (excluding MATH101 and MATH110)
