Welcome to Probability Theory and Statistics! MAT 516 provides an elementary introduction to Probability an Statistics. We will start with axioms of probability and basic theorems, continue with combinatorics, move through conditional probability and independence and then study discrete and continuous random variables. We will study standard probability distributions: binomial, Poisson, geometric, uniform, normal, exponential, as well as their applications to many areas of human activity.

Good luck!
