Abstract

In chapter 2, we came across situations where chance played a part and some of the variables were random variables. In chapter 3, we described models involving random variables as ‘stochastic’ or ‘probabilistic’ models. They obviously form a very important class of problem since uncertainty is an ever-present feature of real life. Here we look a little more closely at what is involved in developing and using probabilistic models.
