MN308 Statistics and
Quality Engineering, and
EC381 Probability in Electrical and Computer Engineering
Spring 2008
Prerequisites
CAS MA 225 (multivariate calculus). No previous experience with probability is assumed.
Description
This very fundamental course deals with the
nature, formulation, and analysis of probabilistic situations. We
will introduce fundamental concepts in probability, stochastic
processes, and statistics and apply them to study topics from
quality engineering. As we develop the key principles, we will discuss
problems from several application areas to demonstrate the extraordinary
breadth of the material. We will however, focus on applications in
detection theory, and quality control methods, and touch upon
some design of experiments (offline quality control) concepts.
May not be taken for credit in addition to ENG EK500 or CAS MA 381.
