Purpose of course
To gain basic knowledge of discrete Martingales. The theory of Martingales is an extremely useful tool used in Stochastic Processes, Financial Mathematics, Branching Theory, Diffusion Theory and Partial differential to name a few! If time permits we might also spend some time on continuous martingales.
In addition, general knowledge about probability theory is useful but not required. For instance courses such as
are (might be) useful.
