 Probability - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
probability is taken as a primitive (that is, not further analyzed) and the emphasis is on constructing a consistent assignment of probability values to propositions.
Probabilities are equivalently expressed as odds, which is the ratio of the probability of one event to the probability of all other events.
Governments typically apply probability methods in environment regulation where it is called " pathway analysis ", and are often measuring well-being using methods that are stochastic in nature, and choosing projects to undertake based on their perceived probable effect on the population as a whole, statistically.

Probabilities P(E) are assigned to events E according to the probability axioms.
Others assign probabilities to propositions that are uncertain according either to subjective degrees of belief in their truth, or to logically justifiable degrees of belief in their truth.
A Bayesian may assign a probability to the proposition that there was life on Mars a billion years ago, since that is uncertain; a frequentist would not assign such a probability, since it is not a random event that has a long-run relative frequency of occurrence.

For the state (61-74 85-99), two numbers are needed: the prior probability of the compound topic (-74 85-99) and the probability that topic 61 is relevant given that topic 85 is relevant.
We calculate the posterior probability that the document is relevant to each topic by summing the posterior probabilities of all of the states in which the topic appears.
For example, the posterior probability for topic 57 is the sum of the posterior probabilities of the five states in which topic 57 is relevant (refer to Table 3.4).

It is often combined or confused with the probability of an event which is seen as undesirable.
Usually the probability and some assessment of expected harms must be combined into a believable scenario combining risk, regret and reward probabilities into expected value.
Accordingly, no comprehensive scenarios of probabilities and counter-measures were ever prepared for the type of attack that occurred.

One of the simplest of discrete sample spaces is a finite set to each of whose members the same probability 1/n is assigned.
An example of a sample space that is not discrete is the closed interval [0, 1] to which the length of any subinterval ( a, b) is assigned as the probability of that subinterval.
The probability assigned to any one-member subset is 0.

 60: Probability theory and stochastic processes
Probability theory is simply enumerative combinatorial analysis when applied to finite sets; thus the techniques and results resemble those of discrete mathematics.
Probability concepts are applied across mathematics when considering random structures, and in particular lead to good algorithms in some settings even in pure mathematics.
Probability questions given a finite sample space are usually "just" a lot of counting, and so are included with combinatorics.

 List of finance topics: Expected value   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
In probability (and especially gambling), the expected value (or expectation) of a random variable is the sum of the probability of each possible outcome of the experiment multiplied by its payoff ("value").
In general, if X is a random variable defined on a probability space (Ω, P), then the expected value EX of X is defined as [\operatorname{E}X = \int_\Omega X dP] where the Lebesgue integral is employed.
Two variables with the same probability distribution will have the same expected value.
