M343 (applications of probability) – TMA 1 about done

No surprises in this one, just lots of probability.
It should be in the post later this week when I head to the shops.
That gives me the next month to concentrate on M347 in advance of its first TMA.
Happy days.

    Enjoying M343 and fascinated by the ingenious methods of solving what are beginning to develop into quite complex problems.
    Also looking forward to M347 in the future and a similar level of maths, so always interested to hear how that is going.
    Done quite a bit of both before, but liking the OU stuff very much indeed.
    Did M248 last year and yes, it is basic.
    But it covers the fundamentals well and would recommend it to anyone as an introduction.
    People need good foundation courses to get them going and, an understandable lack of calculus aside, M248 is as good as any.
    Good luck!

  2. Hi,
    Thanks for the comment.
    I’d agree the problems are beginning to get quite complex, which is good fun.
    I’d always wondered how some probability models were developed – and what makes them rigorous. I’m beginning to find out. 🙂 🙂
    It looks like things get a lot more complicated going forward. Brownian bridges further on look interesting.
