Workshop on Random Network Models

Professor Joseph Blitzstein will open a course this spring, "Statistics 340. Random Network Models". Those who are interested in the booming network industry should definitely come have a look. The course will be reading and discussion based and involves no exams. It will meet regularly from 1 to 2:30 on Fridays at science center 706. I took a probability course from Joe and found he was a hilarious, encouraging and patient teacher. Some kids from 110 posted some clips of his teaching on the youtube. You will like the musical interludes and the Markov ball game.
