Introduction: Review of axiomatic approach to probability.

Random variables: probability distribution of a random variable; Distribution function; Discrete and continuous random variables; Functions of a random variable.

Mathematical Expectation: moments, moment generating functions, Characteristic function.

Study of special distributions: binomial, Poisson, negative binomial, geometric distribution, uniform, exponential, normal, gamma, log-normal.

Bi-variate probability distribution: Marginal and conditional distributions, Bi-variate normal distribution.

Limit theorems: Modes of convergence and their interrelationships; law of large numbers, central limit theorem.

Correlation and Regression: Regression between two variables, Karl-Pearson correlation coefficient and Rank Correlation. Multiple regression, partial and multiple correlation( three variables case only)

Random Sampling: Sampling distributions of chi-square, t and F distribution of mean and variation in sampling from a normal population.

Point estimation: Problem, Probabilities of point estimates. Method of maximum likelihood.

Testing of Hypothesis: Fundamental notions, Neyman-Pearson lemma (without proof). Important tests based on normal, chi-square, t and F distributions.

Interval Estimation: Confidence interval for mean and variance.
