Prerequisites on Probability Theory

Part of the Information Science and Statistics book series (ISS)


In this chapter we review some standard results and definitions from probability theory. The reader is assumed to have had some contact with probability theory before, and the purpose of this section is simply to brush up on some of the basic concepts and to introduce some of the notation used in the later chapters. Sections 1.1–1.3 are prerequisites for Section 2.3 and forward. Section 1.4 is a prerequisite for Chapter 4. and Section 1.5 is a prerequisite for Chapter 6 and Chapter 7.
