Review: This text is a classic in probability, statistics, and estimation and in the application of these fields to modern engineering problems. Probability, Random Variables, and Stochastic Processes assumes a strong college mathematics background. The first half of the text develops the basic machinery of probability and statistics from first principles while the second half develops applications of the basic theory. Topics in the first section include probability distributions and densities, random variables and vectors, expectations, covariance, correlations, functions of random variables and vectors, and conditional distributions and densities. In this third edition of the text, the second half of the book has been substantially updated and expanded to include new or revised discussions of the following topics: mean square estimation, likelihood tests, maximum entropy methods, Monte Carlo techniques, spectral representations and estimation, sampling theory, bispectra and system identification, cyclostationary processes, deterministic signals in noise, and the Wiener and Kalman filters. Probability, Random Variables, and Stochastic Processes covers a remarkable density of material and the clarity of both presentation and notation make this book invaluable as a text and a reference.

Wu-Zhu: JAB Posted on December 4, Useful laplace and fourier table, this will be provided on the final exam, along with inside book covers.
Three 8. The final exam date is December 18, more details to come. Posted on November 10, Exam 2 to be on November 13, , 3pm. You may use 2 double-sided 8. I shall provide tables from the inside book covers. No notes, no calculators, no cellphones and no sharing items allowed. This material will be covered on Exam 2. Posted on September 20, The first exam will be held on Oct. The exam is closed book, closed notes,no cellphones, no calculators of any kind. Only one double sided 8. Welcome from Prof.
This course is the fundamental core course for all degrees in ECE, and you must master this material to succeed in graduate school, in research, and in life.
I will hold weekly help sessions on Monday and Friday afternoons, and we will work lots of problems, I will hold extra office hours, and we will have TAs to help everyone master the material, but you will have to work hard. This is a challenging and rigorous class; it is also required class for your program. Come prepared to work and to learn this wonderful field! Be sure to attend these help sessions to be sure you are learning the material.
You want to come to these help sessions as many problems will be worked for practice and understanding! There will be no help session on Friday October 4th, In addition to this website please see blackboard for additional resources.
