S463 | 3233 | Bradley

The honors course 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.
