distribution functions, expectation, Chebyshev's inequality, common distributions,
momentgenerating functions and limit theorems.
This introductory course in probability is designed for
those students who want more than a "cookbook" approach to the subject, for
those who expect to take further courses in probability, mathematical statistics or
stochastic processes, and for those majoring in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics or
Statistics. The text will be J. Pitman, Probability. Prerequisite:One
