### ME SOFTWARE ENGINEERINGSEMESTER 1 MA7155 APPLIED PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS SYLLABUS

OBJECTIVES

-> To introduce the basic concepts of one dimensional and two dimensional Random Variables.
-> To provide information about Estimation theory, Correlation, Regression and Testing of hypothesis.
-> To enable the students to use the concepts of multivariate normal distribution and principle components analysis.

UNIT I ONE DIMENSIONAL RANDOM VARIABLES
Random variables - Probability function – Moments – Moment generating functions and their properties – Binomial, Poisson, Geometric, Uniform, Exponential, Gamma and Normal distributions – Functions of a Random Variable.

UNIT II TWO DIMENSIONAL RANDOM VARIABLES
Joint distributions – Marginal and Conditional distributions – Functions of two dimensional random variables – Regression Curve – Correlation.

UNIT III ESTIMATION THEORY
Unbiased Estimators – Method of Moments – Maximum Likelihood Estimation - Curve fitting by Principle of least squares – Regression Lines.

UNIT IV TESTING OF HYPOTHESES
Sampling distributions - Type I and Type II errors - Testsbased on Normal, t, Chi-Square and F distributions for testing of mean, variance and proportions – Tests for Independence of attributes and Goodness of fit.

UNIT V MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS
Random Vectors and Matrices - Mean vectors and Covariance matrices - Multivariate Normal density and its properties - Principal components Population principal components - Principal components from standardized variables.

TOTAL 45+15:60 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:
-> The student will able to acquire the basic concepts of Probability and Statistical techniques for solving mathematical problems which will be useful in solving Engineering problems
