|Instructor:||Prof. Dr. Noam Berger|
|Prerequisites:||Measure and integration theory |
Lecture notes of Prof. Lasser's lecture are available here. (in German)
Based on measure and integration theory, in this course the fundamental concepts of probability theory are presented. Of central importance are the different types of convergence, the concept of stochastic independence, and conditional expectations. In addition, the course will deal with the Radon-Nikodym theorem, product spaces and the construction of stochastic processes. For sequences of independent random variables, laws of large numbers and the central limit theorem will be proved. As an important generalization of partial sums of independent random variables, martingales will be introduced and on this basis we will investigate stopping times and prove the martingale convergence theorem.

|Bonus system:||Your homework will be corrected and rated with points. Through the continuous participation in the exercise course you can receive a bonus on your exam grade. If you achieve at least 50 % of all points, you will get a bonus of one grade level on the grade of your exam if passed (i.e., 1.7 becomes 1.3, 2.3 becomes 2.0, 3.0 becomes 2.7, etc.). Improving the grade 1.0 or failed exams is not possible. This bonus counts only for the two exams corresponding to this lecture.|
