This unit is a mathematically based introduction to probability theory. Emphasis is placed on the theoretical development of the subject matter. Students should be mathematically competent, especially in the areas of integration, differentiation and the summation of infinite series. Students who are not confident about their ability in these areas should consider enrolling in the more general unit, STAT273 Introduction to Probability. Topics covered include: conditional probability; discrete and continuous random variables; transformations; convolutions; moments and moment generating functions; central limit theorem; sampling distributions; order statistics; and bivariate distributions.
