課程概述

Contents:
1. Probabilities, random variables, and distributions.
2. Transformations and expectations.
3. Common families of distributions.
4. Multivariate probability distributions and related concepts such as conditional distributions,
independence, and conditional expectation.
5. Random samples, sampling distributions, convergence concepts, and generating random samples.
6. Sufficiency, likelihood, and equivalence principals.
7. Best unbiased estimators 

課程目標
The objective of this course is to introduce to the students some basic theory of probability. It is fundamentally important for understanding the commonly used statistical concepts and methods. It also provides a necessary basis for students for a further study of other advanced statistical courses.  
課程要求
Introduction to Probability and Statistics Theory or equivalent
Students taking this course should be grounded in probability and mathematical
statistics at the upper division undergraduate level.
