CSCI 1550/2540, Spring 2024, taught by Professor Eli Upfal.

This is a course on the mathematics that motivates, formulates, and explains many of the great successes of computing, including statistical machine learning, Monte Carlo methods, and modern cryptography. Probability, randomness, and statistics play a key role in these and almost any other modern computer science application. This course introduces the novel mathematical and computation methods that were developed at the interplay of probability and computing. The course focuses on mathematical models, theorems and proofs, and leaves implementation and experiments to other courses.
