What We Can Learn From Gambling
  • Hermann Haken
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN, volume 1)


The objects we shall investigate in our book may be quite different. In most cases, however, we shall treat systems consisting of very many subsystems of the same kind or of very few kinds. In this chapter we deal with the subsystems and define a few simple relations. A single subsystem may be among the following:
  • atoms

  • molecules

  • photons (light quanta)

  • cells

  • plants

  • animals

  • students


Sample Point Central Limit Theorem Joint Probability Sample Space Continuous Random Variable 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
