General information: Check out first the course announcement
Synopsis: This is the 1st quarter of the 3-quarter graduate probability sequence. A rough plan what should be covered in this quarter is as follows:
Literature & resources:
Principal textbook: R. Durrett Probability: Theory and Examples, Cambrige Univ. Press. (see online version)
Other resources will be distributed as we go on.
Course credit:Successful completion of all homework assignments and good performance on the final will be sufficient for getting the course credit.
Scheduling:The course will first meet on Oct 2 due to the late arrival of the lecturer (caused by personal reasons). I will make up for the missed first class later in the quarter.
