QuestionAnswer
classical theory of probability the computations are made independently of any sensory observation of actual events
principle of indifference it is assumed that there are no "freak of nature" events that will occur
relative frequency theory of probability rests upon computations but depends on actual observations of the frequency with which certain events happen
subjectivist theory of probability interprets the meaning of probability in terms of the beliefs of individual people.
probability calculus functions to the set of truth-functional rules in propositional logic
restricted conjunction rule used to compute the probability of two events occurring together when the events are independent of each other
general conjunction rule used to compute the probability of two events occuring together whether or not the events are independent
restricted disjunction rule used to compute the probability of either of two events occuring when the events are mutually exclusive
general disjunction rule used to compute the probability of either two events whether or not they are mutually exclusive
negation rule useful for computing the probability of an event when the probability of an event not happening is either known or easily computed
bayes theorum a rule used for evaluating the conditional probability of two more more mutually exclusive and jointly exhaustive events
