Few subjects in mathematics and science are more widely used, feared, and scorned than probability and its derivative discipline, statistics. Defining probabilities is a fundamental process in the observation of state space and forms the basis for much of modern scientific theory and experimentation. We will use probability functions throughout this book, and we will review most of the concepts and distributions needed for the consideration of most of these areas of study in this section.
