Course description:
Foundations for the engineering analysis of random processes: set theoretic fundamentals, basic axioms of probability models, conditional probabilities and independence, discrete and continuous random variables, multiple random variables, sequences of random variables, limit theorems, models of stochastic processes, noise, stationarity and ergodicity, Gaussian processes, power spectral densities.

Prerequisite: Understanding of basic probability (random variables, distributions, expectations) and linear systems; familiarity with Matlab programming.
