CC item list
## ITEM 16. Adding MTH514 to math section of Table 1

**Motion:** That we add MTH514 to Table 1, math electives for CS
students.

**Status:** CC: to be discussed. ; DCSC:

**Discussion: **

Rationale:
MTH514 Probability and Stochastic Processes is very similar to
MTH500 Introduction to Stochastic Processes, which is already in
Table 1. The problem is that MTH500 rarely runs, whereas MTH514 runs
frequently for Engineering students. The Program Director of Math
is going to propose to their Curriculum Committee or Dept. Council that
they add alternate prerequisites of
MTH304, MTH330 to the calendar description of MTH514. This will
make it easier for our students to find math elective classes.

MTH 500 Introduction to Stochastic

Processes

Probability of a function of several variables, martingales, conditional
expectations, maximum likelihood estimators, random walks, stochastic
processes (stationary and ergodic). Applications of statistical
processes in science.

Lect: 3 hrs.

Prerequisite: MTH 404 or MTH 480

MTH 514 Probability and Stochastic
Processes

Introduction to probability theory and stochastic processes. Topics
covered include: elements of probability theory, conditional probability
sequential experiments, random variables and random vectors, probability
density, function cumulative density functions, functions of random
variables, expected values of random variables, transform methods in
random variable, reliability of systems, joint and marginal probability,
correlation, confidence intervals, stochastic processes, stationary and
ergodic processes, power spectral density, sample processes.

Lect: 3 hrs./Lab: 1 hr.

Prerequisites: ELE 302, COE 318, COE 328, MTH 312, MTH 314, ELE 401, ELE
404, and COE 428
