To introduce the basic concepts and engineering applications of probability and statistics. The course introduces the set theory, basic concepts of probability, conditional probability, independent events, Bayes’ theorem, discrete and continuous random variables, distributions and density functions, probability distributions (binomial, poisson, geometric, hyper geometric, N.B, poisson, uniform, normal and exponential), mean, variance , standard deviations, moments and moment generating functions. Linear regression, correlation and Curve fitting.
