1. Necessarily the Best Introduction to theory Of Probability Forever glorious be your name, O wise guest of my thoughts, for it proves irrefutably that The Everything is Certainly Probable! "The most important questions of life are, for the most part, really only problems of probability." (Pierre Simon de Laplace, "Théorie Analytique des Probabilités") I view a best introduction as necessarily the best treatise . Science goes into such details that sounds like a jargon and resembles a game. Kind of like a theory of word puzzles: Using a lot of jargon for little practical purposes. Theory of probability has undoubtedly its jargon. It also has that huge number of formulas and equations with no practical purpose but to torment sleepless students before exams.

Every one of us uses the words probable probability or odds few times a day in common speech when referring to the possibility of a certain event happening . Whether we have math skills or not, we frequently estimate and compare probabilities, sometimes without realizing it, especially when making decisions. But probabilities are not just simple numbers attached objectively or subjectively to events, as they perhaps look, and their calculus and usage is highly predisposed to qualitative or quantitative errors in the absence of proper knowledge.
This site is a brief introduction to Probability Theory Basics and Probability Calculus , with goals of helping non-mathematicians to apply and perform probability calculus without a teacher and to stimulate them to go deeper into the notions involved.

Statistics Probability Probability
Three Different Concepts of Probability The classical interpretation of probability is a theoretical probability based on the physics of the experiment, but does not require the experiment to be performed. For example, we know that the probability of a balanced coin turning up heads is equal to 0.5 without ever performing trials of the experiment. Under the classical interpretation, the probability of an event is defined as the ratio of the number of outcomes favorable to the event divided by the total number of possible outcomes. Sometimes a situation may be too complex to understand the physical nature of it well enough to calculate probabilities. However, by running a large number of trials and observing the outcomes, we can estimate the probability. This is the empirical probability based on long-run relative frequencies and is defined as the ratio of the number of observed outcomes favorable to the event divided by the total number of observed outcomes. The larger the number of trials, the more accurate the estimate of probability. If the system can be modeled by computer, then simulations can be performed in place of physical trials. A manager frequently faces situations in which neither classical nor empirical probabilities are useful. For example, in a one-shot situation such as the launch of a unique product, the probability of success can neither be calculated nor estimated from repeated trials. However, the manager may make an educated guess of the probability. This

Probability for linguists John Goldsmith 1. Introduction Probability is better thought of in another way. We use probability theory in order to talk in an explicit and quantitative way about the degree of certainty, or uncertainty, that we possess about a question. Putting it slightly differently, if we wanted to develop a theory of how certain a perfectly rational person could be of a conclusion in the light of specific data, we'd end up with something very much like probability theory. And that's how we should think of it. Let's take an example. Many of the linguistic examples we consider will be along the lines of what a speech recognition system must deal with, which is to say, the task of deciding (or guessing) what word has just been uttered, given knowledge of what the preceding string of words has been coming out of the speaker's mouth. Would you be willing to consider the following suggestions?
Let us suppose that we have established that the person is speaking English. Can we draw any conclusions independent of the sounds that the person is uttering at this moment? Surely we can. We can make an estimate of the probability that the word is in our desk-top Webster's Dictionary, and we can make an estimate of the probability that the word is "the", and an estimate of the probability that the word is let's choose another word "telephone". We can be quite certain, in fact, that "the" is the most likely word to be produced by an English speaker; as much as five percent of a speaker's words may

From LoveToKnow 1911
PROBABILITY (Lat. probabilis, probable or credible), a term which in general implies credibility short of certainty. The mathematical theory of probabilities deals with certain phenomena which are employed to measure credibility. This measurement is well exemplified by games of chance . If a pack of cards is shuffled and a card dealt, the probability that the card will belong to a particular Subject. suit is measured by - we may say, is - the ratio 1:4, or 1; there being four suits to any one of them the card might have belonged. So the probability that an ace will be drawn is as out of the 52 cards in the pack 4 are aces. So the probability that ace will turn up when a die is thrown is 6. The probability that one or other of the two events, ace or deuce , will occur is 3. If simultaneously a die is thrown and a card is dealt from a pack which has been shuffled, the probability that the double event will consist of two aces is 1 X4 divided by 6 X52, as the total number of double events formed by combining a face of a die with a face of a card is 6 X52, and out of these 1 X4 consist of two aces. The data of probabilities are often prima facie at least of a type different from that which has been described. For example, the probability that a child about to be born will be a boy is about 0.51. This statement is founded solely on the observed fact that about 5 r % of children born (alive, in European countries) prove to be boys. The probability is not, as in the instance of

Probability Results Report lets you peruse the historical results from all the probability games. Note : Probability is a funny thing. Don't expect the numbers from trials to exactly match the predicted resultsespecially if you run only a few trials. As you run more trials the numbers should tend to get closer to the predictions. After a couple of hundred runs, you should see results that are at least vaguely close to expectations. However, even after thousands of runs you might still see some anomalies.
