**OBJECTIVES:**

This course is designed to provide the solid foundation on topics in applied probability and various statistical methods which form the basis for many other areas in the mathematical sciences including statistics, modern optimization methods and risk modeling. It is framed to address the issues and the principles of estimation theory, testing of hypothesis and multivariate analysis.
