BIST 510 - Probability & Sampling |

The goal of the course is to convey an understanding of probability and distribution theory. The probability theory is necessary to provide a foundation for statistics. Probability theory: set theory and probability theory, conditional probability and independence, random variables, distribution functions, density and mass functions for continuous and discrete random variables. Transformation and expectations: distributions of functions of a random variable, expected values, moments and moment generating functions. Common families of distributions: discrete and continuous distributions, exponential family, and location-scale family. Multiple random variables: joint and marginal distributions, conditional distributions and independence, covariance and correlation, multivariate distributions, hierarchical models and mixture distributions. Sampling theory: normal theory, limit theorems. 3.000 Credit hours 3.000 Lecture hours 0.000 Lab hours Levels: MN or MC Graduate, Undergraduate Schedule Types: Lecture Biostatistics & Epidemiology Department Restrictions: Must be enrolled in one of the following Levels: MN or MC Graduate Must be enrolled in one of the following Majors: Biostatistics Biostatistics Mathematics and Statistics |
