Abstract

The subject matter of probability theory is the mathematical analysis of random events, i.e., of those empirical phenomena which—under certain circumstance—can be described by saying that:

They do not have deterministic regularity (observations of them do not yield the same outcome);

whereas at the same time

They possess some statistical regularity (indicated by the statistical stability of their frequency).
