S463 will cover the same general collection of topics as the regular
course M463: Axioms of Probability; conditional probability and
independence; random variables, distribution functions, expected
values, variances and standard deviations, co-variances and
correlations; important discrete and continuous distributions;
multivariate distributions; and basic limit laws such as the central
limit theorem. In comparison with M463, the honors course S463 will
involve homework problems of greater depth, and more emphasis will
be placed on proofs. The textbook in S463 will be the one by Sheldon
Ross, A First Course in Probability.
