This course introduces the theory and applications of random processes needed in various disciplines such as mathematical biology, finance, and engineering. Topics include discrete and continuous Markov chains, Poisson processes, as well as topics selected from Brownian motion, renewal theory, and simulation.

to give:

Joshua K:

Linear systems of equations, matrix algebra, linear spaces, orthogonality, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization, and matrix decomposition

To door 1: Would the other door tell me your door is safe or dangerous?

If door 1 is telling the truth, then he would say that door 2 (liar door) would say that door 1 is safe if it is dangerous or dangerous if it is safe.

If door 1 is telling the lie, then he would say door 2 (truth door) would say dangerous if the door is really safe, and safe if it is really dangerous.

So you can see in either case if you get the answer 'dangerous' it is the dangerous door and if the answer is 'safe' the door is dangerous no matter which one you ask.

JOHNNY:

you can't ask 2+2 because you only get 1 question.
