## Probability Foundation for Electrical Engineers

Probability Foundation for Electrical Engineers. Instructor: Prof. Krishna Jagannathan, Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Madras. This is a graduate level class on probability theory, geared towards students who are interested in a rigorous development of the subject. It is likely to be useful for students specializing in communications, networks, signal processing, stochastic control, machine learning, and related areas. In general, the course is not so much about computing probabilities, expectations, densities etc. Instead, we will focus on the 'nuts and bolts' of probability theory, and aim to develop a more intricate understanding of the subject. For example, emphasis will be placed on deriving and proving fundamental results, starting from the basic axioms. (from nptel.ac.in)

 Lecture 46 - Convergence of Characteristic Functions, Limit Theorems

Convergence of characteristic functions, a brief digression into some geometric inequalities (Holder, Minkowski, Lyapunov), introduction to the laws of large numbers, statements of the weak and strong laws of large numbers.
