MA-UY 3514 Honors Probability

4 Credits

The aim of this class is to introduce students to probability theory, with a greater emphasis on rigor, more material, and a faster pace than the Theory of Probability/Applied Probability class. The material will include discrete and continuous probability, and the most fundamental limit theorems (law of large numbers and Central Limit Theorem). Students will be made familiar with the classical models, computations on densities, and convergence to universal distributions. They will also be expected to understand the proofs of all the results seen in class, and be able to argue with mathematical rigor.

Prerequisite(s): (MA-UY 2114  or MA-UY 2514 ) with a grade of B+ or better, and (MA-UY 2034 or MA-UY 3034 or MA-UY 3044 or MA-UY 3054) with a grade of B+ or better, and MA-UY 2314 with a grade of B+ or better.

Anti-Requisites: MA-UY 3014.


Also listed under: MATH-UA 238
Note: While B+ or higher is the standard requirement for this course, the department will consider petitions sent to soe.math@nyu.edu if you are on the borderline of that requirement.

Weekly Lecture Hours: 4
