Objective This course as a compulsory course will help the students to comprehend fundamental concepts of probability theory and gain the ability to use methods of this discipline (probabilities of events, rules for random variables and moment concept, transformations of random variables, Gauss’ theorem). In this context, the aim of this course is determined as:
• introducing the students the probability theory, especially random variables related to uncertain events.
• ensuring that the student master the different probability distributions.
• helping the students to use probability theory to analyze problems encountered in business domain especially problems including uncertainty.
