Probability is the study of the chance that a particular event or series of events will occur. Typically, the chance of an event or series of events will occur is expressed on a scale from (impossible) to 1 (certainty) or as an equivalent percentage from to 100%.
The probability ( P f ) of a favorable outcome is Rolling dice, an excellent model of probability. Details
P f = f/n
where:
• n is the total number of possible outcomes and f is the number of possible outcomes that match the favorable outcome criteria.
• The analysis of many events governed by probability is statistics , covered elsewhere.

probability
Probability is a branch of mathematics that deals with calculating the likelihood of a given event's occurrence, which is expressed as a number between 1 and 0. An event with a probability of 1 can be considered a certainty: for example, the probability of a coin toss resulting in either "heads" or "tails" is 1, because there are no other options, assuming the coin lands flat. An event with a probability of .5 can be considered to have equal odds of occurring or not occurring: for example, the probability of a coin toss resulting in "heads" is .5, because the toss is equally as likely to result in "tails." An event with a probability of can be considered an impossibility: for example, the probability that the coin will land (flat) without either side facing up is 0, because either "heads" or "tails" must be facing up. A little paradoxical, probability theory applies precise calculations to quantify uncertain measures of random events. In its simplest form, probability can be expressed mathematically as: the number of occurrences of a targeted event divided by the number of occurrences

Calculation of Probability
Since inductive arguments only tend to show that their conclusions are likely to be true, we turn in today's lesson to a quick overview of modern probability theory . We assume from the outset that what may be said to be probable is the occurrence of an event, the sort of thing that could be described in a statement or proposition. If we assign a numerical value of 1.0 as the probability of an event that must happen (signified by a tautologous statement) and a numerical value of 0.0 as that of an event that cannot happen (signified by a self-contradiction), then every degree of probability that lies in between these two extremes can be expressed as a decimal or fraction between 0.0 and 1.0. There are two theories about what these numerical representations of probability might mean. A classical theory supposes that probability of an event is the degree to which it would be rational to believe the truth of a proposition describing the event. A frequency theory, on the other hand, supposes that the probability of an event is just a report of the relative frequency with which events of a similar sort have actually occurred in the past. In most of our examples here, we'll use simple combinatorial arithmetic to assign the initial probability P(A) , of an event A . From this, we can readily calculate the probability of the co-occurrence of separate events.

Basic Probability
The probability for a given event can be thought of as the ratio of the number of ways that event can happen divided by the number of ways that any possible outcome could happen. If we identify the set of all possible outcomes as the "sample space" and denote it by S, and label the desired event as E, then the probability for event E can be written In the probability of a throw of a pair of dice , bet on the number 7 since it is the most probable. There are six ways to throw a 7, out of 36 possible outcomes for a throw. The probability is then The idea of an "event" is a very general one. Suppose you draw five cards from a standard deck of 52 playing cards, and you want to calculate the probability that all five cards are hearts. This desired event brings in the idea of a combination . The number of ways you can pick five hearts, without regard to which hearts or which order, is given by the combination while the total number of possible outcomes is given by the much larger combination The same basic probability expression is used, but it takes the form

1. Kolmogorov's Probability Calculus
Probability theory was inspired by games of chance in 17 th century France and inaugurated by the Fermat-Pascal correspondence. However, its axiomatization had to wait until Kolmogorov's classic Foundations of the Theory of Probability field (or algebra F P be a function from F to the real numbers obeying:
• (Non-negativity) P A A F (Normalization) P (Finite additivity) P A B P A P B ) for all A B F such that A B
• Call P a probability function F P ) a probability space The assumption that P F F , we obtain such welcome results as P P (even) = P P (odd or less than 4) = P (odd) + P P We could instead attach probabilities to members of a collection S of sentences of a formal language, closed under (countable) truth-functional combinations, with the following counterpart axiomatization:

What is a Percent?
A percent is a ratio of a number to 100. A percent can be expressed using the percent symbol %. Example: 10 percent or 10% are both the same, and stand for the ratio 10:100.
Percent as a fraction
A percent is equivalent to a fraction with denominator 100. Example: 5% of something = 5/100 of that thing. Example: 2 1/2% is equal to what fraction?
Example: 52% most nearly equals which one of 1/2, 1/4, 2, 8, or 1/5? Answer: 52% = 52/100. This is very close to 50/100, or 1/2. Example: 13/25 is what %? Alternatively, we could say: Let 13/25 be n %, and let us find n . Then 13/25 = n n , so 25 n n n n Example: 8/200 is what %?

Programme
Theme of Conference:
Random Matrix theory was first developed in the 1950s by Wigner, Dyson and Metha to describe the spectra of highly excited nuclei. Since then it has found application in many branches of Mathematics and Physics, from quantum field theory to condensed matter physics, quantum chaos, operator algebra, number theory and statistical mechanics. This workshop will focus on those aspects of random matrix theory that find application in probability. Specific themes will include: a) Brownian motion and the Riemann zeta function; b) Eigenvalues of non-Hermitian random matrices; c) Universality, sparse random matrices, transition matrices and stochastic unitary matrices; d) Matrix-valued diffusion, Brownian motion on symmetric spaces; e) Intertwining relationships in random matrix theory and quantum Markov processes.

Maximum and minimum probabilities of combinations of events
Definition: Given an event A, the expression p(A) refers to the probability of event A occuring. In the first section we consider questions such as the following: If p(A) = 1/2 and p(B) = 1/3, then what is the maximum possible probability of event A or event B occurring? Note that in questions such as these, events A and B are not stated to be independent of each other. If events A and B are independent, then none of the reasoning in this section would apply, so keep that in mind and be sure to read probability questions carefully for mentions of the word "independent"! Given events A and B, you can represent the probability of the events using a diagram similar to a Venn diagram from set theory:
Imagine that the area inside the rectangle is 1. The total area inside the circle A represents the probability of event A occurring, and the area inside circle B represents the probability of event B occurring. Thus if you were to pick a random point inside the rectangle, the probability that you would land inside circle A, is the same as the probability of event A. Similarly, the probability that event A
