This text assumes no prerequisites in probability, a basic exposure to
calculus and linear algebra is necessary. Some real analysis as well as some
background in topology and functional analysis can be helpful. This note covers
the following topics: Limit theorems, Probability spaces, random variables,
independence, Markov operators, Discrete Stochastic Processes, Continuous
Stochastic Processes, Random Jacobi matrices, Symmetric Diophantine Equations
and Vlasov dynamics.
This note provides an introduction to probability theory and
mathematical statistics that emphasizes the probabilistic foundations required
to understand probability models and statistical methods. Topics covered
includes the probability axioms, basic combinatorics, discrete and continuous
random variables, probability distributions, mathematical expectation, common
families of probability distributions and the central limit theorem.
