    The word probability derives from the Latin probare (to prove, or to test). Informally, probable is one of several words applied to uncertain events or knowledge, being more or less interchangeable with likely risky hazardous uncertain , and doubtful , depending on the context. Chance odds , and bet are other words expressing similar notions. As with the theory of mechanics which assigns precise definitions to such everyday terms as work and force , so the theory of probability attempts to quantify the notion of probable Table of contents 1 Historical remarks 2 Concepts 3 Formalization of probability 3.1 Representation and interpretation of probability values ... edit
    Historical remarks
    Probability theory, as applied to observations, was largely a nineteenth century development Gambling shows that there has been an interest in quantifying the ideas of probability for millennia, but exact mathematical descriptions of use in these types of problems only arose much later. The doctrine of probabilities dates as far back as Pierre de Fermat and Blaise Pascal Christiaan Huygens (1657) gave the first scientific treatment of the subject.

    Bayesian probability
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    Bayesianism is the philosophical tenet that the mathematical theory of probability applies to the degree of plausibility of statements, or to the degree of belief of rational agents in the truth of statements; when used with Bayes theorem , it then becomes Bayesian inference . This is in contrast to frequentism , which rejects degree-of-belief interpretations of mathematical probability, and assigns probabilities only to random events according to their relative frequencies of occurrence. The Bayesian interpretation of probability allows probabilities assigned to random events, but also allows the assignment of probabilities to any other kind of statement. Whereas a frequentist and a Bayesian might both assign probability 1/2 to the event of getting a head when a coin is tossed, a Bayesian might assign probability 1/1000 to personal belief in the proposition that there was life on Mars a billion years ago, without intending to assert anything about any relative frequency.

    In finding a new solution to a classic probability problem concerning the collection of items in a set, a new and useful recursive function has been found, the twodimensional factorial.
    The "Two-Dimensional Factorial"
    and a New Solution for the Probability
    of Completing Sets in Random Sampling Jeffrey D. Lindsay (This is a Web adaptation of a paper that I published while I was an Associate Professor at the Institute of Paper Science and Technology in Atlanta, Georgia. Original reference: J.D. Lindsay, "A New Solution for the Probability of Completing Sets in Random Sampling: Definition of the 'Two-Dimensional Factorial'," The Mathematical Scientist
    In developing an improved solution to a classical sampling problem, a new recursive function is obtained which can be termed a "two-dimensional factorial." The sampling problem deals with the probability of completing a subset of unique items when randomly sampled with replacement from a finite population. The two-dimensional factorial is partially tabulated, and several of its properties are investigated, including limits for large numbers. Use of this function offers significant computational advantages over the previous classical solution to the probability problem considered here. The function is not known to have been discovered in previous work.
    A classical sampling problem in probability theory deals with the likelihood of collecting a set of items by randomly sampling a population (Feller, 1950, pp. 51-66). A simple example can be found in the collection of sets of promotional items offered inside cereal boxes or other consumable goods. The items are presumably randomly and uniformly distributed, and remain unidentified until the package has been opened. For instance, the makers of one cereal brand offered miniature license plates from all 50 states with one plate per box. If I want to collect all 50, how many boxes should I plan to purchase to be 95% confident that the set will be completed? A less ambitious consumer may simply want to know the probability that at least 10 different plates will be obtained by purchasing 12 boxes. Related questions may be found in sampling problems in scientific studies.

    Simulating Probability Situations Using Box Models
    The interactive tool in this i-Math investigation is a "box model" that allows students to explore the relationship between theoretical and experimental probabilities. A "box model" is a statistical device that can be used to simulate standard probability experiments such as flipping a coin or rolling a die. To use the " box model ":
    • To Enter Data: Click on the number pad to enter numbered tickets into the box. To Randomly Draw Tickets: Click on the Start button to randomly draw tickets from this box (with replacement) and view, in real time, the experimental probability of drawing a given ticket. To Pause the Drawing: When you press the Pause button the "box model" pauses drawing. You can then click on any bar in the bar chart to display the current relative frequency. In pause mode, you are also able to scroll through the sample of the numbers drawn thus

    The 8th International


    June 23-29, 2002
    For three decades the International Vilnius Meetings on Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics have provided an important event for our science. The meeting will follow the well established pattern of Vilnius Conferences with a few plenary talks and sessions on important subfields. The conference will provide a forum for the international exchange of knowledge among scientists and give an impulse for international relations between participants, statistical societies and other official and non-official organizations.
      Honorary Patron of the Conference - President of the Republic of Lithuania Valdas ADAMKUS
      The Conference is supported by the government of the Republic of Lithuania.
      The Conference is being organized under the auspicies of the International Statistical Institute

    Probability Probability is the branch of mathematics which studies the possible outcomes of given events together with their relative likelihoods and distributions. In common usage, the word "probability" is used to mean the chance that a particular event (or set of events) will occur expressed on a linear scale from (impossibility) to 1 (certainty), also expressed as a percentage between and 100%. The analysis of events governed by probability is called statistics There are several competing interpretations of the actual "meaning" of probabilities. Frequentists view probability simply as a measure of the frequency of outcomes (the more conventional interpretation), while Bayesians treat probability more subjectively as a statistical procedure which endeavors to estimate parameters of an underlying distribution based on the observed distribution.

    Stats: Introduction to Probability
    Sample Spaces
    A sample space is the set of all possible outcomes. However, some sample spaces are better than others. When writing the sample space, it is highly desirable to have events which are equally likely. First Die Second Die
    Classical Probability
    The above table lends itself to describing data another way using a probability distribution. Let's consider the frequency distribution for the above sums. Sum Frequency Relative Frequency If just the first and last columns were written, we would have a probability distribution. The relative frequency of a frequency distribution is the probability of the event occurring. This is only true, however, if the events are equally likely. This gives us the formula for classical probability. The probability of an event occurring is the number in the event divided by the number in the sample space. Again, this is only true when the events are equally likely. A classical probability is the relative frequency of each event in the sample space when each event is equally likely. P(E) = n(E) / n(S)
    Empirical Probability
    Empirical probability is based on observation. The empirical probability of an event is the relative frequency of a frequency distribution based upon observation.
