9/23/11 We often use capital letters (and sometimes indices) to talk about an event. Example, “A” might be the event we get a head on the flip of a coin. We use this notation because it is more efficient than writing “Heads.” We often use “P” to indicate a probability function. Example, “P(A)” would be the probability of getting a head on the flip of a coin. We use “P” and letters because they are more efficient than writing “Probability of Heads.” P(A|B): conditional probability of A knowing that B already occurred P(A or B) = P(A U B) = probability of the union P(AB) = P(A and B) = P(A ∩ B): joint probability Some Notation
