Know basic definitions and results from set theory; for example, know the two forms of de Morgan’s law, know distributive rule of intersection and union (whichs says A ∩ ( B ∪ C ) = ( A ∩ B ) ∪ ( A ∩ C ) and A ∪ ( B ∩ C ) = ( A ∪ B ) ∩ ( A ∪ C )). Also know injective, surjective, bijective maps, and how to prove that various maps have these properties. 2. Know the definition of a sigma algebra: S is a sigmaalgebra means that i) S contains the empty set. ii) If A ∈ S , then A ∈ S iii) If A 1 ,A 2 ,... is a countable collection of sets in S , then their union blongs to S . 3. Know the Kolmogorov axioms of probability: P : σ → [0 , 1] is a probability measure from the sigmaalgebra σ consisting of certain subsets of S (the sample space) if i) P ( S ) = 1 ii) If A 1 ,A 2 ,... is a disjoint collection of sets in σ , then P ( A 1 ∪ A 2 ∪ ··· ) = P ( A 1 ) + P ( A 2 ) + ··· ....
