Course description: This is an introductory course in the mathematical theory of probability, thus it is
fundamental to further work in probability and statistics. Principles of set theory and a set of axioms for
probability are used to derive some probability density and/or distribution functions. Special counting
techniques are developed to handle some problems. Properties associated with a random variable are
developed for the usual elementary distributions. Both theorem proving and problem solving are required.
