Some Topics from Probability Theory
In order to describe the behavior of a random quantity such as a life length, certain probabilistic descriptions have become standard. Although these are well known, a brief elementary outline is offered, with an emphasis on motivation. This will help set notation and terminology; for those not familiar with these foundations, it may add some depth of understanding.
