## Classes

### Stochastic Models for Social Processes

The course is taught to Fourth Year Bachelor of Economics and Statistics students. It is an introduction to tools needed in the next course in applied stochastic processes. Aspects such as Generating functions, Probability Generating Function, Conditional distributions and Expectations, Moment Generating Functions, Laws of Large Numbers and Introduction to Markov Chains are covered within the course.

### Design of Clinical Trials

The course is taught to master of science in Biometry students, within their second year. The course involves studying statistical procedures for analysis data from clinical trials, aspects such as sample size computation, meta analysis in clinical studies and Randomization techniques.

### Data Management and Analysis

The course involves methods of data management and analysis techniques using R statistical software. The course is intended to introduce students to use of computer software in statistical data management and analysis. R is an open source software, and capable of handling all tasks in mathematics. It is also a program based software (not just pull down menu) and quite useful in enhancing learners programming skills.

### Survival Models

The course is taught to Postgraduate Diploma in Actuarial Science.

### Quantum Mechanics I

Studying physics can be likened to Carpentry where using the right type of tool makes the job less tedious. The invention of quantum mechanics during the first 27 years of the twentieth century marked a revolutionary change in our understanding of phenomena on microscopic scales. Classical physics ideas held before then had instant limitations in their validity, as quantum mechanics became an alternative theory more richer both in scope and application.

### Electrodynamics 1

This course is one of the core units in theoretical and experimental physics. It is a continuation of second year Electricity and Magnetism course unit. It aims at introducing the student to the fundamental aspects of classical electrodynamics and will climax in the derivation and application of the famous Maxwell's equations of electrodynamics.

### Evolution of Stars

This course unit is one of the core units in the third year Bsc astronomy and astrophysics degree at the University of Nairobi. It addresses the important astrophysical subject of stellar evolution which describes how the observed physical properties of stars change during their lifetime- from birth to death.
