Set Theory Experiments, Sample Spaces, and Events Probability Basics Five Theorems Definition and Notations Laws of Operation Definition and Notations Definition: A set is a collection of objects. Members of a set are called elements. Notation: A , B , C , ... for sets a , b , c , ... for elements for membership, e.g., x A / for non-membership, e.g., x / A U is the universal set (i.e., everything) is the empty set Prof. Jun Zhuang Fall 2010 EAS 305 Lecture Notes Page 3 of 26
