This course is aimed at students in applied fields and assumes a prerequisite of calculus. The goal is a working knowledge of the concepts and uses of modern probability theory. A significant part of such a "working knowledge" in modern applications of mathematics is computer-dependent. The course contains mathematical problems and computer exercises. Students will be expected to write and execute programs pertinent to the material of the course. No programming experience is necessary or assumed. But the willingness to accept a computer as a tool is a requirement.
