Unformatted text preview: to Leon-Garcia, Probability, Statistics, and Random Processes
for Electrical Engineering, Pearson Prentice Hall, 3rd ed., 2008 (ISBN 0131471228).
Instructor’s note: The course will most closely follow the presentation in the book by Stark
and Woods. However, the book by Leon-Garcia is easier to read and has more engineering-related
15. Course Notes: Course notes developed by the instructor will be provided in PDF form and
will also be available for purchase as a soft-cover book.
16. E-Learning: All students must use the class web site, which is on E-Learning Sakai:
Some problems will require MATLAB. MATLAB is available on the ECEL cluster. As
departmental computer resources are limited, students may want to purchase the student
version of MATLAB or install GNU Octave, which is a free MATLAB replacement1 . Not
being able to get MATLAB access is not a valid excuse for late work.
