The course is intended for the 1st year students of the PhD programmes of the Graduate School of Economics and Management (G.S.E.M.) of  the A.A. 2011/2012 (XXVII cicle).
Introduction to Mathematics and Elementary Statistical Theory. Attendance at more advanced courses such as Real Analysis, Probability, Distribution Theory and Inference would be highly desirable.
Objectives of the course
The purposes of this course are: (i) to explain, at an intermediate level, the formal basis of abstract probability theory and some of its more relevant theoretical features; (ii) to explore those aspects of the theory most used in advanced analytical models in economics and finance. The approach taken will be formal, but the topics will be illustrated and explained through many examples.
