Next Meeting[edit | edit source]

  • On hiatus until further notice 9/22/2011


General[edit | edit source]

A probability study group was proposed on the noisebridge-discuss list and cc'ed to the Machine Learning mailing list.

The goal is to go through the stuff covered in the 7 chapters of Fundamentals of Applied Probability Theory. We were originally using that book, but decided to switch to the Bertsekas and Tsitsiklis book (see resources) which covers the same topics, and to the problems/solutions posted under MIT OCW Course 6.041.

Approximate meeting format:

  • 30-45 min - a volunteer presents the material in the chapter
  • 30-45 min - people discuss, solve problems, go over solutions
