Probability & Statistics is the interdisciplinary study of theoretical probability, applied probaility, mathematical statistics, and applied statistics.
All first-year Science courses will be delivered virtually for Winter 2021. Due to the COVID-19 provincial lock-down, all students who were expecting in-person labs, should check their McMaster e-mail for important winter announcements..
Research in Probability and Statistics at McMaster is highly interdisciplinary, and reaches beyond the department into the Faculties of Science, Medical, Engineering and Business. Research interests include: Theoretical Probability (large deviations, stochastic differential equations, martingales) Applied Probability (stochastic genetics, queueing systems) and Mathematical Statistics (inferential methods, model-validity, outliers, multivariate analysis) and Applied Statistics (environmental hazards, animal abundance, genetics, climatology, pharmaceutics, and mortality).
