**OBJECTIVES**

This course aims at providing the required skill to apply the statistical tools in engineering problems.

To introduce the basic concepts of probability and random variables.

To introduce the basic concepts of two dimensional random variables.

To develop an understanding of the standard techniques of complex variable theory in particular analytic function and its mapping property.

To familiarize the students with complex integration techniques and contour integration techniques which can be used in real integrals.

To acquaint the students with Differential Equations which are significantly used in engineering problems.

**UNIT I PROBABILITY AND RANDOM VARIABLES**

Axioms of probability – Conditional probability – Baye’s theorem – Discrete and continuous random variables – Moments – Moment generating functions – Binomial, Poisson, Geometric, Uniform, Exponential and Normal distributions – Functions of a random variable.

**UNIT II TWO-DIMENSIONAL RANDOM VARIABLES**
