Outcome
An outcome is the result of an experiment or other situation involving uncertainty. The set of all possible outcomes of a probability experiment is called a sample space.
Sample Space The sample space is an exhaustive list of all the possible outcomes of an experiment. Each possible result of such a study is represented by one and only one point in the sample space, which is usually denoted by S.
Examples
Experiment Rolling a die once:
Experiment Tossing a coin:
Experiment Measuring the height (cms) of a girl on her first day at school:
Sample space S = the set of all possible real numbers

Event An event is any collection of outcomes of an experiment. Formally, any subset of the sample space is an event. Any event which consists of a single outcome in the sample space is called an elementary or simple event. Events which consist of more than one outcome are called compound events.
Set theory is used to represent relationships among events. In general, if A and B are two events in the sample space S, then
(A union B) = 'either A or B occurs or both occur'
(A intersection B) = 'both A and B occur'
(A is a subset of B) = 'if A occurs, so does B'

Introduction
Probability theory is simply enumerative combinatorial analysis when applied to finite sets; thus the techniques and results resemble those of discrete mathematics. The theory comes into its own when considering infinite sets of possible outcomes. This requires much measure theory (and a careful interpretation of results!) More analysis enters with the study of distribution functions, and limit theorems implying central tendencies. Applications to repeated transitions or transitions over time lead to Markov processes and stochastic processes. Probability concepts are applied across mathematics when considering random structures, and in particular lead to good algorithms in some settings even in pure mathematics.
History
A list of references on the history of probability and statistics is available.
Applications and related fields
Some material in probability (especially foundational questions) is really measure theory . The topic of randomly generating points on a sphere is included here but there is another page with general discussions of spheres . Probability questions given a finite sample space are usually "just" a lot of counting, and so are included with

Probability Sampling
A probability sampling method is any method of sampling that utilizes some form of random selection . In order to have a random selection method, you must set up some process or procedure that assures that the different units in your population have equal probabilities of being chosen. Humans have long practiced various forms of random selection, such as picking a name out of a hat, or choosing the short straw. These days, we tend to use computers as the mechanism for generating random numbers as the basis for random selection.
Some Definitions
Before I can explain the various probability methods we have to define some basic terms. These are:
• N = the number of cases in the sampling frame n = the number of cases in the sample N C n = the number of combinations (subsets) of n from N f = n/N = the sampling fraction
That's it. With those terms defined we can begin to define the different probability sampling methods.
Simple Random Sampling
The simplest form of random sampling is called simple random sampling . Pretty tricky, huh? Here's the quick description of simple random sampling:
