LetEbe a denumerable set (i.e., finite or countable) and let (Ω,S,P) be a probability space. Any functionXmapping Ω intoEand such that for all xE,
$$ \{ \omega |X(\omega ) = x\} \in \mathcal{F}, $$
is called adiscrete random elementofE. When\( E \subset \mathbb{R} \) one would rather refer toXas adiscrete random variable.
