MS&E 120: Probabilistic Analysis

Concepts and tools for the analysis of problems under uncertainty, focusing on focusing on structuring, model building, and analysis. Examples from legal, social, medical, and physical problems. Topics include axioms of probability, probability trees, random variables, distributions, conditioning, expectation, change of variables, and limit theorems. Prerequisite: CME 100 or MATH 51.

MS&E 121: Introduction to Stochastic Modeling

Stochastic processes and models in operations research. Discrete and continuous time parameter Markov chains. Queuing theory, inventory theory, simulation. Prerequisite: 120, 125, or equivalents.

Instructors: Chiu, S. (PI)

MS&E 125: Introduction to Applied Statistics

An increasing amount of data is now generated in a variety of disciplines, ranging from finance and economics, to the natural and social sciences. Making use of this information, however, requires both statistical tools and an understanding of how the substantive scientific questions should drive the analysis. In this hands-on course, we learn to explore and analyze real-world datasets. We cover techniques for summarizing and describing data, methods for statistical inference, and principles for effectively communicating results. Prerequisite: 120, CS 106A, or equivalents.

Architecture of the Internet and performance engineering of computer systems and networks. Switching, routing and shortest path algorithms. Congestion management and queueing networks. Peer-to-peer networking. Wireless and mobile networking. Information service engineering and management. Search engines and recommendation systems. Reputation systems and social networking technologies. Security and trust. Information markets. Select special topics and case studies. Prerequisites: 111, 120, and CS 106A.

MS&E 226: Fundamentals of Data Science: Prediction, Inference, Causality

This course is about understanding "small data": these are datasets that allow interaction, visualization, exploration, and analysis on a local machine. The material provides an introduction to applied data analysis, with an emphasis on providing a conceptual framework for thinking about data from both statistical and machine learning perspectives. Topics will be drawn from the following list, depending on time constraints and class interest: approaches to data analysis: statistics (frequentist, Bayesian) and machine learning; binary classification; regression; bootstrapping; causal inference and experimental design; multiple hypothesis testing. Class lectures will be supplemented by data-driven problem sets and a project. Prerequisites: CME 100 or MATH 51; 120, 220 or STATS 116; experience with R at the level of CME/ STATS 195 or equivalent.

MS&E 232: Introduction to Game Theory

Examines foundations of strategic environments with a focus on game theoretic analysis. Provides a solid background to game theory as well as topics in behavioral game theory and the design of marketplaces. Introduction to analytic tools to model and analyze strategic interactions as well as engineer the incentives and rules in marketplaces to obtain desired outcomes. Technical material includes non-cooperative and cooperative games, behavioral game theory, equilibrium analysis, repeated games, social choice, mechanism and auction design, and matching markets. Exposure to a wide range of applications. Lectures, presentations, and discussion. Prerequisites: basic mathematical maturity at the level of Math 51, and probability at the level of MS&E 120 or EE 178.
