± ECSE-303 (Signals and Systems I) or ECSE-306 (Fundamentals of Signals and Systems). ± No previous exposure to probability is assumed. Objectives: ± The course is intended as an introduction to the mathematical theory and applications of probability and random signals for students in electrical, computer and software engineering. It aims to develop fundamental concepts and methods of this field and, through a variety of examples, illustrate some of their applications. ± After successfully completing the course, students should be well prepared to take on more advanced courses in such fields as communications systems, artificial intelligence, computer network, control engineering and signal processing. List of Topics: Part I : Fundamental concepts (~9 hours) ± Introduction : Determinism and randomness in science, regularity and relative frequency, goals of probability, axiomatic approach. ± Background material : Review of set theory: terminology, set operations, and sigma-algebra. Combinatorial analysis: counting principles, permutations, combinations, related results. ± The probability model
