Probability Models and Simulation (6 points)


Leader: Associate Professor P R Rayment

Gippsland First semester 2004 (OCL)

Synopsis: This subject is designed to introduce students to simple random processes in discrete and continuous time, to develop the ability to build probabilistic models (emphasising queueing models) and to build a basis for design and control of queues. It also introduces them to simulation techniques for solving problems where analytical methods are inappropriate.

Assessment: Three assignments: 40% + Examination (3 hours): 60%

Contact Hours: 3 hour lectures and 1 hour tutorial/workshop per week

Prerequisites: MAT1085 and MTH1210 or STA1010
