Do you need to take a probability/statistics course for Quantum Mechanics, or is the probability in quantum mechanics so rudimentary that you can just learn it along the way? I'm in doubt as to whether I should take the course or not, is it needed? What probability is actually in QM?
What I know already:
Arithmetic mean, median, mode, sample & population variance, standard deviation, discrete and continuous random variables, binomial, poisson and gaussiand distribution and finally the expected value.
If you would like to add things I need which aren't listed, that would be wonderful. I'd hate taking the course knowing almost everything I need apart from a couple of things.
