Olá! My name is Rodrigo Ribeiro and I am a visiting assistant professor at University of Colorado (Boulder). This website is a channel between my students and myself and also a place to promote the results of my research on probability. From time to time I also write personal thoughts in the Blog section.
All the courses I am teaching this semester
Introduces the basic notions of Probability: random variables, expectation, conditioning, and the standard distributions (Binomial, Poisson, Exponential, Normal). This course also covers the Law of Large Numbers and Central Limit Theorem as they apply to statistical questions: sampling from a random distribution, estimation, and hypothesis testing.
Studies axioms, combinatorial analysis, independence and conditional probability, discrete and absolutely continuous distributions, expectation and distribution of functions of random variables, laws of large numbers, central limit theorems, and simple Markov chains if time permits
