14 Elements of Probability Theory The set of all possible outcomes of an experiment, such as tossing a six-sided die, is called the sample space, which we will denote individual outcomes of are called sample points, which we will denote by ω. An event is any subset of the sample space. An event is simple if it consists of exactly one outcome. An event, however, is any subset of the sample space, including any singleton set (an elementary event), the empty set (an impossible event, with probability zero) and the sample space itself (a certain event, with probability one). Other events are proper subsets of the sample space that contain multiple elements. So, for example, potential.

Infinity and Probability. When it comes to counting, there is a gap between finite and sets are equivalent or, which is the same, have the same number of elements when there exists a correspondence between their elements. To use a handy example, two hands have the same number of fingers (5) because to each finger on one hand their correspond exactly one finger . The authors are primarily interested in (1), and assume the definition of mathematical probability as follows: Elements of Probability By Prof. H. Levy L. Roth. Pp. x + Author: J. Neyman.
