Unformatted text preview: P ( A ) , p X ( x ) , and p . • The letter P ( · ) is the probability of a speciﬁed event; • The letter p ( x ) (or sometimes p X ( x ) is the probability that the random variable X takes on the the speciﬁed value x , i.e., p ( x ) = p X ( x ) = P ( X = x ); • The letter p (or sometimes p X ) is the probability mass function for the random variable X , it is the collection of numbers p = ( p ( x ) , x ∈ X ) (or p X = ( p X ( x ) , x ∈ X )). www.ece.drexel.edu/faculty/sweber 1 October 17, 2007...
