This course prepares Ph.D. students with advanced topics in probability and stochastic processes, with a focus on deriving and analyzing probability and stochastic models, and theorem proving in related topics. Contents include review of probability theorems, limit and convergence theorems, generating functions, Poisson processes, renewal theory, discrete and continuous Markov chains, and other advance topics. Prerequisite: INEG 5313 and INEG 5323. (Typically offered: Spring)

INEG 6363. Generalized Linear Models. 3 Hours.

Introduce the generalized linear model (GLM), inference, likelihood and diagnostics. Apply log linear and logistic models. Develop techniques for growth curves, and longitudinal and survival data. Cover spatial and normal linear models, and dynamic GLM for dependent data. (Typically offered: Irregular)

INEG 6443. Advanced Decision Analysis. 3 Hours.

The purpose of this course is to prepare the student to perform PhD and MS level research and analysis using advanced decision analysis concepts and techniques. The course topics include the history of decision analysis, foundations of decision analysis, structuring decision problems, assessing probabilities, probability management, Bayesian networks, utility, risk preference, risk analysis for engineering applications, intelligent adversary risk analysis, behavioral and organizational context for decision analysis, and major decision analysis applications. Prerequisite: INEG 5443. (Typically offered: Spring)

INEG 6823. Systems Simulation II. 3 Hours.

Advanced topics in computer simulation including experimental design, simulation optimization, variance reduction, and statistical output analysis techniques applied to discrete event simulation. Prerequisite: INEG 5823. (Typically offered: Irregular)

INEG 6843. Scheduling Theory and Algorithms. 3 Hours.

The course will cover the theory and solution methods for scheduling several tasks over time. Topics include terminology, measures of performance, single machine sequencing, flow shop scheduling, the job shop problem, and priority dispatching. Side constraints within scheduling, such as precedence, release dates, and due dates are addressed. Integer programming, dynamic programming, and heuristic approaches to various problems are also presented. Prerequisite: INEG 5613 or equivalent, computer programming proficiency, and exposure to proofs. (Typically offered: Irregular)

INEG 700V. Doctoral Dissertation. 1-18 Hour.

Doctoral Dissertation. (Typically offered: Fall, Spring and Summer) May be repeated for degree credit.
