Much research involving probability is done under the auspices of applied probability, the application of probability theory to other scientific and engineering domains.
However, while such research is motivated (to some degree) by applied problems, it is usually the mathematical aspects of the problems that are of most interest to researchers. Among the areas of applied probability our faculty specializes in are stochastic simulation, stochastic control, extreme value theory and probabilistic analysis of algorithms.
The faculty researchers in this area exemplify the collaborative nature of the work done at Cornell Engineering.
