News & Events
A new course Math 4685/6685 on Statistical Learning will be offered in the Fall, focusing on "Big Data". The pre-requisite for this course is any introduction course in probability and/or statistics and the material will be accessible to non-math/stat majors. Interested students from all departments are encoraged to enroll. A followup course Math 4686/6686 will be offered in the Spring. Email Dale Bowman for more details.
