Stochastic processes, 7.5 credits
Level: First level 1
Department: Department of Mathematics
Course code: 1MA202
The Markov part is coloured by its applications, in particular queueeing systems, but also for example branching processes, lifetime calculations and reliability.
Life-time calculations and reliability are important in industry for a well-performing quality control.
Branching processes designates a model for population growth. The model gives criteria for when a population (or epidemics, nuclear reaction, et cetera) will be extincted at some future date.
In the part with weakly stationary processes important notions in signal processing are introduced.
