## Research## ProbabilityProbability is the study of uncertainty or randomness and its
consequences in the world around us. Probability plays a significant
role in almost every branch of science, engineering, economics and
medicine. It is also provides the basis for statistics. Moreover, the
increasing complexity of deterministic processes has stimulated
investigators both in and outside of mathematics to consider
probabilistic approaches. "Probability provides a way of thinking about
the world that is distinct from the modes of thought in other areas of
mathematics. ...Based on its special intuition, probability generates
tools and techniques that are relevant to other areas of pure
mathematics." --2002 NSF report on |
