Conditional Independence of Events

In Chapter 4, we introduced a mathematically simple characterization of stochastic independence to model the lack of conditioning between two events. Independence is assumed for events that are the result of operationally independent actions or processes. In some cases, however, closer examination of the operational independence shows a “conditioning” by some common chance factor. If this common condition exists, the processes affecting the events may then be operationally independent. This suggests the need for some modification of the concept of stochastic independence.
