# Topic: Probability densities

 Probability density function - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In mathematics, a probability density function (pdf) serves to represent a probability distribution in terms of integrals. A probability density function is non-negative everywhere and its integral from −∞ to +∞ is equal to 1. In the field of statistical physics, a non-formal reformulation of the relation above between the derivative of the cumulative distribution function and the probability density function is generally used as the definition of the probability density function. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Probability_density_function   (894 words)

 Bayes' theorem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The probability of an event A conditional on another event B is generally different from the probability of B conditional on A. However, frequentist and Bayesian interpretations disagree about the kinds of things to which probabilities should be assigned in applications: frequentists assigned probabilities to random events according to their frequencies of occurrence or to subsets of populations as proportions of the whole; Bayesians assign probabilities to propositions that are uncertain. Pr(A) is the prior probability or marginal probability of A. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Bayes'_theorem   (2561 words)

 Probability, Distributions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01) While it is important for mathematical statisticians to understand all of the details, all that is necessary for most analysts is to insure that random sampling is involved in observational studies and randomization is involved in intervention trials. The probability of an event E, P(E), is the proportion of times the event occurs in a long series of experiments. The probability that something is true for an individual selected at random from a population is equal to the fraction of the population for whom it is true. www.tufts.edu /~gdallal/prob.htm   (884 words)

 Probability density functions, discrete and continuous The probability of the sample at (-3, 2) is p(-3, 2) = 0.238%, the sample at (-3, -2) is p(-3, -2) = 1.19%, and p(3,-2) = 8.33%. The probability of the small square is the probability per unit area calculated at (x,y) multiplied by the area of the square, dx times dy. In one dimension, the probability density is a function of one variable, p(x). www.sirus.com /users/mjake/probdens.html   (2729 words)

 Square Wells: p.15 Note from the 1D plots that the probability density is high near the origin. For several of these plots the probability density is also plotted along a particular line. Don't be fooled by the above plot: the probability density oscillations are not of uniform height. www.physics.csbsju.edu /QM/square.15.html   (607 words)

 Probability Densities We sometimes say that the probability density is normalized to have a total integral (or total probability) equal to 1. Using our first observation, this is just saying that the probability is 1 (which means that it must happen) that a particle which decays during the first 1000 years actually decays during the first 1000 years. We have already used the probability density to find the average time of decay. ugrad.math.ubc.ca /coursedoc/math101/notes/moreApps/probabilityI.html   (1314 words)

 M241 Probability Discussion Notes Chapter 4 The sum area of the bars of the histogram represented the probability that a random variable that distribution lies within the specified interval. For random variables with a continuous distribution, we use a probability density function f(x) to determine the probability that the random variable lies with an interval as follows: The interpretation of this probability graphically is the area under the curve f(x) between a and b. www.saintjoe.edu /~karend/m241/m241-4.html   (1363 words)

 PROBABILITY   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01) We consider a Markov operator on a general measure space and provide necessary and sufficient conditions for existence of invariant probability densities. A similar approach is applied to the existence of invariant probabilities for Markov processes on a metric space. We have provided a common "uniform principle" behind several types of weak convergences for a sequence of probability measures on a locally compact separable metric space. www.laas.fr /~lasserre/proba.html   (405 words)

 Families of Unnormalized Densities The notion of an unnormalized density is elementary, occurring in the problem often assigned in introductory probability courses of finding the constant that normalizes a given function to be a probability density. Use of the term `unnormalized density' implies that the normalizing constant (1.1) is finite and nonzero. This game can be played for families of densities specifying a statistical model. www.stat.umn.edu /PAPERS/html_prints/points/node3.html   (225 words)

 Hydrodynamic dispersion near the percolation threshold: scaling and probability densities Hydrodynamic dispersion near the percolation threshold: scaling and probability densities It is shown that dispersion can give rise to superdiffusion in which the mean-square displacements of the random walk grow with time faster than linearly, while the spectral dimension of such random walks can be significantly larger than two, which is the critical dimension for diffusion on fractal systems. The author proposes a new equation for the probability density of finding the random walker at a point at a given time and discusses a method by which the probability density for first passage times of the walker can be determined. stacks.iop.org /0305-4470/20/L1293   (283 words)

 Probability I (Based on Measure Theory) This course is taught as it is standard at University of Paris, Cornell University, Humboldt University at Berlin, University of Technology at Dresden or Moscow State University. Probability Theory and Probabilistic Methods is a very large field, and we will certainly not be able to cover all of the important techniques in a one-semester course, so I intend to let the interests and needs of the registered students guide the choice of mathematical strength in specific topics to be studied.
