Abstract

Imagine that some experiment involving random chance takes place, and use the symbol Ω to denote the set of all possible outcomes. For example, if you throw an ordinary die, then Ω = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. Or you might switch on the television set and ascertain what proportion of the current programme remains to be broadcast. Here Ω would be the continuum of real numbers from zero to unity.
