** PROBABILITY **

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.

In the Mathematics Department at UCSD,
the research of faculty in probability is
concerned with
developing the theory of probability and stochastic processes
and related
applications.
The theory has connections to other areas of
Mathematics such as Analysis, Geometry and Combinatorics, and
applications arise in applied areas such as
Physics, Genetics, Systems Biology, Finance, Neuroscience and
Communications Theory.
