Probability Theory and Applications

NIOS via YouTube


This course covers a wide range of topics in Probability Theory and Applications. The learning outcomes include understanding queuing models, Markov chains, Poisson processes, central limit theorem, stochastic processes, reliability theory, and various distributions of random variables. Students will learn to analyze and apply these concepts in real-world scenarios. The course teaches skills such as calculating transition probabilities, analyzing state probabilities, and understanding the properties of different types of random variables. The teaching method involves theoretical explanations, mathematical derivations, and practical applications. This course is intended for individuals interested in deepening their knowledge of probability theory and its applications, particularly students and professionals in fields such as mathematics, statistics, engineering, and computer science.
