Introduction to Stochastic Processes with R by R. Dobrow
(freely available as Ebook through Five Colleges library catalog)

Course goals:


Course Topics: 


Attendance: Class will be chock full of material and activities -- cooperative learning is more effective and more fun than struggling through material on your own. If you do miss a class, it is your responsibility to obtain the material that you missed and to get your assignments handed in to me.


Questions: If you have a question during lecture, please raise your hand and ask it right away. Chances are that other students are wondering the same thing. If a question arises later, feel free to visit my office and we'll work through sample problems until you are comfortable with the mathematics.  Always feel free to ask me to slow down as well.


Grading:  Your course grade will be based on class participation (10%), three take-home exams (50% total), regular problem sets and labs (20%), and a final project (20%).
