### Winter 2008

Math 280B is the second course in a three-term sequence devoted to the elements of Probability Theory.
In the Winter Term (280B) we will be concerned with two topics: (1) Convergence in Distribution and the Central Limit Theorem, and (2) Martingales (in discrete time).

The Spring term (280C) will focus on Markov processes, including Markov chains and Brownian motion.

*A Probability Path* by S. Resnick (Birkhäuser, 1999). The material for the Winter term is in chapters 8-10.
- Lectures will be on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 9 AM to 9:50 AM, in APM 7421.
