NPTEL: Probability Foundations for Electrical engineers

 with  R Aravind and Andrew Thangaraj

This course will introduce the basic foundational aspects of probability theory primarily to an electrical engineering audience. In communications, signal processing and networking applications, probability theory and models play a vital role in design and implementation. This course will prepare a student to take courses such as Digital/Wireless Communications, Adaptive Signal Processing and Communication Networks.
