PROBABILITY COURSES
**

Besides being a basic area of Mathematics and providing the theoretical
foundation for Statistics, Probability is also used in a rapidly growing
number of applications in the physical, biological, social and engineering sciences.
Such applications often require the development of new theory
and need scientists and engineers trained in the fundamental techniques of
probability.
