Probabilistic Systems Analysis and Applied Probability

Welcome to 6.041/6.431, a subject on the modeling and analysis of random phenomena and processes, including the basics of statistical inference. Nowadays, there is broad consensus that the ability to think probabilistically is a fundamental component of scientific literacy. The aim of this course is to introduce the relevant models, skills, and tools, by combining mathematics with conceptual understanding and intuition. (from ocw.mit.edu )
