Abstract

In this chapter, we visit the vaguely defined area of basic probability theory; in our conception of the world of probability this area includes elementary theory for rv’s. Ideas are put forward concerning conditional probability, exchangeability, combination of events and zero—one rv’s. Do not forget the last section about the ‘zero—one idea’, which provides a powerful tool in many otherwise awkward situations. A good general reference for basic discrete probability is Feller (1968); another is Moran (1968).
