Probability Theory (12,942 Books)


Probability is a way of expressing knowledge or belief that an event will occur or has occurred. The concept has an exact mathematical meaning in probability theory, which is used extensively in such areas of study as mathematics, statistics, finance, gambling, science, Artificial intelligence/Machine learning and philosophy to draw conclusions about the likelihood of potential events and the underlying mechanics of complex systems.
