Intended learning outcomes

The course gives an introduction to the mathematical modelling of random experiments, with a special emphasis on applications in science, technology, and economics. After completing the course the student will be expected to be able to:

  • identify experiments where the result is influenced by random factors.
  • describe the basic concepts and theorems of probability theory, e.g., random variable, density function, and the law of large numbers.
  • construct suitable probabilistic models for random experiments.
  • compute important quantities in probabilistic models, e.g., probabilities and expectations.
  • construct and analyse probabilistic models for certain time-dependent randomly varying quantities, e. g. in form of time discrete Markov chains.
  • follow a basic course in statistics.

Course content

Sample space, events and probabilities. Combinatorics. Conditional probabilities and independent events. Discrete and continuous random variables, their probability distributions, expectations and variances. Normal, exponential, binomial, poisson distributions etc. Functions of random variables. Multidimensional random variables. Law of large numbers and the central limit theorem. Poisson processes. Time discrete Markov chains.

Teaching and working methods

Lectures and tutorials.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
