Probability

Abstract

This chapter takes a geometric view of probability theory and relates it to familiar concepts in linear algebra and geometry. This approach connects your natural geometric intuition to the key abstractions in probability that can help guide your reasoning. This is particularly important in probability because it is easy to be misled. We need a bit of rigor and some intuition to guide us.
