Course Syllabus

Poisson process, Renewal theory, Markov chains, Reversibility, Queueing networks, Martingales, Random walk.

Course Description

Basic mathematical modeling is at the heart of engineering. In both electrical and computer engineering, many complex systems are modeled using stochastic processes. This course will introduce students to basic stochastic processes tools that can be utilized for performance analysis and stochastic modeling.
