    I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin at Madison I am spending Fall 2005 on leave, doing research and writing while visiting Harvard. My research interests are in combinatorics, probability, and dynamical systems. Preprints and reprints of many of my articles are available on-line, as are slides from some of my talks. To find out more about my research, you can look at my two most recent grant proposals to find out (some of) what I'm doing now and what I want to do next. The first proposal , entitled "Integrable Recurrence Relations and Combinatorics", is currently being funded by the National Security Agency, covering the period March 2004 through February 2006. The second proposal , entitled "Quasirandomness in Discrete Probability Theory", will be re-submitted to the National Science Foundation this coming autumn; if funded, the project will take place from Summer 2006 through Summer 2008. (For more about quasirandomness, click here .) Both research projects undergraduates research assistants as well as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

    Statistics and Probability
    Graduate study in statistics and probability has taken on a new look and increased importance in the last decade due to dramatically increased computational power and the aggressive and highly successful application of statistical methods by our competitors in the world market-place. In particular, the Japanese have extensively employed design of experiments, data analysis, and statistical process control to improve the quality of their manufactured products. Recently a number of major U.S. corporations began emulating the Japanese approach by requiring all upper-level managers to have sufficient formal training in statistics to properly implement and monitor statistical process control programs. Whether one is interested in applying statistical methods to problems in government or industry, or would like to engage in teaching and research at a university, a program can be tailored to meet these objectives within the constructs of the graduate program at Clemson. In addition to comprehensive training in statistical theory and methodology, students are exposed to areas such as combinatorics, mathematical programming, and scientific computing. While these areas are not part of a traditional statistics program, knowledge of them is becoming essential to the application and development of statistical methods. Thus, the Mathematical Sciences Department at Clemson is an ideal place to pursue the study of statistics. Students who choose to pursue the PhD degree may do research within the Department of Mathematical Sciences or they may enroll in the Management Science PhD program which is jointly administered by Mathematical Sciences and the Department of Management. That program stresses the use of analytic models and quantitative methods for decision making.

    Price: Description: Contents Preface 1st Chapter Supplementary Material: Problem Solutions (last updated 8/6/05), Supplementary problems Errata (last updated 9/10/05) Link to the MIT course Ordering Home An intuitive, yet precise introduction to probability theory, stochastic processes, and probabilistic models used in science, engineering, economics, and related fields. This is the currently used textbook for "Probabilistic Systems Analysis," an introductory probability course at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, attended by a large number of undergraduate and graduate students. The book covers the fundamentals of probability theory (probabilistic models, discrete and continuous random variables, multiple random variables, and limit theorems), which are typically part of a first course on the subject. It also contains, a number of more advanced topics, from which an instructor can choose to match the goals of a particular course. These topics include transforms, sums of random variables, least squares estimation, the bivariate normal distribution, and a fairly detailed introduction to Bernoulli, Poisson, and Markov processes. The book strikes a balance between simplicity in exposition and sophistication in analytical reasoning. Some of the more mathematically rigorous analysis has been just intuitively explained in the text, but is developed in detail (at the level of advanced calculus) in the numerous solved theoretical problems.

    At the end of a rainbow lies a pot of gold. When Finnegan took us there we found sparkling gold coins. Those coins intrigued us. We began flipping them and noticed sometimes they landed on heads-sometimes on tails. Finnegan had us record our flips. He told us we were collecting data. We were fascinated with Collecting data allows students to experience what is to be a scientist. By examining it and then interpreting it, students work at a much higher level than merely reading about it. We designed this section of our site with the above in mind. There are online activities for students to examine (and yes, adults can play too) as well as ideas and activities for teachers to use in their classrooms. We hope you'll enjoy these projects. Introductory Lessons
    • How to Collect Data
      There's an art to collecting data. Spend a few minutes reviewing with Finnegan how to go about getting your data.
    • What to Do with Data
      Graphing is an excellent way to organize your data so you see quickly what your data are doing.
    • Interpret Data
      What are your data trying to show you?

    • The important principles of statistics, even the most difficult ones, are remarkably easy if they can be seen. Learning is facilitiated by the active participation of the student.
    • Statistics can be fun!

    Normal Probability Calculation Demonstrations
    from Seeing Statistics
    Gary H. McClelland

    University of Colorado, Boulder
    Seeing Statistics uses over 100 Java applets to make statistics visual. Below are links to demonstration applets useful for finding probabilities related to normal distributions.
    • Normal Probabilities . Use this applet to answer all questions which specify a range of raw or z-scores and ask for the probability.
    • Normal Probabilities . This is a more interactive applet than the previous one; it allows the use to drag the ends of the included region with the mouse. This applet is more fun but its accuracy is limited by the resolution of the screen. However, it may be more educational because the user directly experiences the connection between the shaded area under the normal distribution and the probability.
