Elementary probability

  • Mario Lefebvre
Part of the Springer Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics and Technology book series (SUMAT)


This first chapter devoted to probability theory contains the basic definitions and concepts in this field, without the formalism of measure theory. However, the range of problems that can be solved by using the formulas of elementary probability is very broad, particularly in combinatorial analysis. Therefore, it is necessary to do numerous exercises in order to master these basic concepts.
