- Relation to randomness
- In a deterministic universe, based on Newtonian concepts, there would be no probability if all conditions were known (Laplace's demon), (but there are situations in which sensitivity to initial condit ...

- Mathematical treatment
- Consider an experiment that can produce a number of results. The collection of all results is called the sample space of the experiment. The power set of the sample space is formed by considering all ...

- Applications
- Probability theory is applied in everyday life in risk assessment and in trade on financial markets. Governments apply probabilistic methods in environmental regulation, where it is called pathway ana ...

- Theory
- Main article: Probability theoryLike other theories, the theory of probability is a representation of probabilistic concepts in formal terms—that is, in terms that can be considered separately from t ...

- History
- Main article: History of probabilityThe scientific study of probability is a modern development. Gambling shows that there has been an interest in quantifying the ideas of probability for millennia, b ...

- Etymology
- The word Probability derives from the Latin probabilitas, which can also mean probity, a measure of the authority of a witness in a legal case in Europe, and often correlated with the witness's nobili ...

- Interpretations
- Main article: Probability interpretationsWhen dealing with experiments that are random and well-defined in a purely theoretical setting (like tossing a fair coin), probabilities describe the statistic ...

- Probability
- Probability is used to quantify an attitude of mind towards some proposition of whose truth we are not certain. The proposition of interest is usually of the form "Will a specific event occur?" The at ...
