# An Introduction To Probability Theory And Its Applications

@inproceedings{William1950AnIT, title={An Introduction To Probability Theory And Its Applications}, author={F. William}, year={1950} }

Office hours: MWF, immediately after class or early afternoon (time TBA). We will cover the mathematical foundations of probability theory. The basic terminology and concepts of probability theory include: random experiments, sample or outcome spaces (discrete and continuous case), events and their algebra, probability measures, conditional probability A First Course in Probability (8th ed.) by S. Ross. This is a lively text that covers the basic ideas of probability theory including those…
