Course Description: Prerequisite: 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.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
